Working with Dan Pierson of Corsi Associates over the past 13 years has been a pleasure. During this time, Dan and I collaborated on numerous kitchen and restaurant design projects, ranging from renovations to new builds. We have constantly improved and refined our designs. The Brooklyn Heights project, which involved a 90-year-old historic hotel, was particularly challenging and required creativity and flexibility. Dan was a valuable partner on this project, bringing his expertise, experience, knowledge of Watermark's expectations, and creative and collaborative skills. The outcome was a functional kitchen and an innovative, multi-venue food and beverage program.

What also keeps me coming back to Sam Tell after so many years is the service. They’ve always been reliable, accessible and my service representative treats me like gold and who doesn’t want that from their service representative? When you can tell someone what you need for your business and by the end of the day know that it’s been ordered and it’s on its way, that’s important.
Not only is it business with Sam Tell. It’s personal and it’s special."

"It is my pleasure to produce this reference letter for Arthur Fisher and The Sam Tell Companies. My professional engagement with Arthur began in the first quarter of 2015. The Sam Tell Companies were awarded the foodservice replacement and renovation contract for the work performed at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX.
The project itself was challenging in that $80MM of renovation work was scheduled to be completed in approximately 130-days. A best value approach was taken for subcontractor selection and the bidding field was limited due to the high risk viewed in completing the work on time and on budget.
Arthur Fisher was the first person I met from The Sam Tell Companies and after our initial meeting I knew we had selected the right vendor to complete the work. His organizational and leadership skills were showcased each day onsite. When any issue arose, he would always produce solutions and provided me with the best options achievable in the timeframe available.
In conclusion, I would gladly invite Arthur Fisher and The Sam Tell Companies onto any project in which I was engaged because I am certain that their involvement would make my project successful."

We completed a $60 million renovation in 2017, which represented the most significant capital improvement project in the facility’s 24-year history in anticipation of hosting the 2018 NCAA Final Four Basketball Championship. The goal was to provide the facility with the amenities comparable and competitive with other sports venues and stadiums across the country.
As part of these improvements we upgraded the east and west concourses to give more circulation spaces and more attractive and inviting food and beverage options to our visitors.
Turner Construction was our manager and they selected The Sam Tell Companies to be the Foodservice Equipment contractor. The scope of work included a new beer distribution service, food preparation kitchens and 36 all new concession stands.
The Sam Tell Companies met the challenge of an escalated schedule and difficult working conditions. In total, we built (36) concession stands within the predetermined time frame and within the cost parameters provided.
To be clear, The Sam Tell Companies did an exemplary job and we cannot be more pleased with the final product."
