Shmuel and Shira Itzhak purchased the Remedy Intelligent Staffing Franchise office in Virginia Beach, VA in 1998, which was previously owned by Joe Kennedy and has been operational since 1970. In 2015, due to our expanding client base, the operation opened an additional office in Suffolk, Virginia.


This Remedy franchise is a certified SWAM, Woman Owned Business. The Remedy offices in Virginia Beach and Suffolk are locally owned and operated by majority owner Shira Low Itzhak, MBA and Shmuel Itzhak. As business owners, Shira and Shmuel Itzhak have helped their clients find top talent building a highly respectable reputation in the business community. Clients that we have serviced over the past 20+ years will, hands down, say that Remedy cares about their success and productivity like no other staffing and recruiting agency. Our clients testify that Remedy does not just send a candidate to work, but Remedy ensures the success of the candidate and the success of the placement.


In March, 2021 our franchise received the coveted “Franchisee of the Year” award for best representing the Remedy spirit, operating a growing business and living the brand and “extra-mile service” philosophy every day.
