The secret to a successful event is no secret. Our well-trained, highly skilled hospitality staff will help you and your guests relax and enjoy an exceptional experience

Make the Right Impression

We believe that prompt, polite, gracious service elevates events and the businesses behind them. For more than a decade, SMS has provided friendly, competent, fully insured hospitality staff to help businesses across the Detroit area. Our front-of-house staff, including TIPS-certified bartenders, make the right first impression. And our experienced back-of-house workers ensure a glitch-free event that builds relationships and brands.

Front of House


Our hosts, servers and other front-of-house staff are trained to deliver exceptional guest experiences. They go well beyond the basics to identify guests’ needs and creatively adjust their efforts to meet—and
exceed—expectations. That’s how we’ve built lasting relationships with clients who count on us, again and again, to provide the right staff to deliver on their vision.

Back of House


Behind the scenes, chefs, cooks, dishwashers, and others form the backbone that allows front-of-house staff to provide a seamless guest experience. SMS goes above and beyond to find experienced,
skilled, and motivated individuals who take great pride in their work. They’re team players that can be counted on to work hard for you, from setup to breakdown.

Staffing for
Your Needs

SMS offers flexible staffing options to meet your unique needs. Add temporary staff whenever you need them, contract for a period of time, hire directly—whatever model you need, we provide.
We are the premier agency focused on hospitality staffing in the Metro Detroit area.

The art of guest services

Make no mistake: We provide staff who are experienced and highly skilled. But to work with us, they also have to understand the art of guest services. They’re motivated and hard-working, they anticipate guests’ needs, and they’ll go the extra mile to make your business shine.
