Par Excellence Hospitality Staffing


A Student-Run and Supported Staffing Company Since 1982

An official University of Houston Organization, Par Excellence is a non-profit hospitality staffing company that allows Conrad N. Hilton College students the unique opportunity to manage their own small business and serve you, the Greater Houston Area, while they are still students. Our company specializes in excellent hospitality services including bartending, food service, cake cutting, wine service, flambé, and all other aspects of hospitality service. We are proud to be invited to private, personal, and corporate events to showcase the talents of our student members. 

Since our founding in 1982, we have ensured that all proceeds from our services are used to support students financially and academically through scholarships and professional training. We thank you for your continued support of the University of Houston and its students.
