PORTLAND, April 20, 2023 – The Old Spaghetti Factory is excited to announce that all workers, including part time and hourly employees, can now receive eight safety-net benefits from Avibra, including life and AD&D insurance, at no cost to them. Through this partnership, Avibra benefits will be made available in all 42 restaurant locations across the US – thousands of The Old Spaghetti Factory workers can now access benefits, however many or few hours worked.

“We’ve been working to offer benefits to more of our hourly workers for a long time now,” says Jolie Maresh,Vice President of Human Resources at The Old Spaghetti Factory. “Avibra allowed us to fully open up some real safety-net benefits to our team members regardless of hours worked. We’re proud to be able to support them with things like prescription drug savings, housing counseling for renters and homeowners alike, and life and AD&D insurance.”

“We saw a need that was going unmet in the benefits space with all of these part-time and hourly workers,” said Yogesh Shetty, CEO and founder of Avibra. “We kept seeing these employers struggle to find options that worked for their workforce. They were getting frustrated at having to maintain a system of haves and have-nots.”

This partnership comes at a critical time as restaurant employers struggle to find and retain talent amid the stubbornly tight labor market in the US. Avibra benefits have helped restaurant owners and franchisee chains increase job applicants and reduce worker turnover, yielding a significant ROI while increasing worker motivation to show up to the job.
