My name is Mark Mitchell and I’m the owner of Brenz Pizza Co. Columbus located at the Lennox Town Center near the Ohio State University. We’ve been in business for just over two years and fortunately choose Roose Company to do the build out on our restaurant location.
I was referred to Roose Company through my architect as a good option to build our store. My architect had worked with Roose Company before and they said they had a good working relationship with them from other projects. After contacting Roose Company and asking if they would bid on the project, I received a call from Lamar Roose within a few weeks and met him on site to go over the plans and discuss questions that he had. After completing the bid process with two other companies, Roose Company won the bid due both to their time table availability and fairness of their bid.
The day we took possession of the site, we quickly found out that there would be issues that we weren’t previously aware that would increase construction costs from the start. Even with the surprise of the additional costs I always felt that Lamar and Lynn were on our side to help get the job going as quickly as possible. As in every construction project, I knew there would be additional costs throughout but the initial project was a big one. Lamar and Lynn were very fair on handling both that issue and other changes all along. They didn’t nickel and dime me throughout the whole process. Instead it was a very fair discussion on how to handle each issue as it arose to get the project done.
We had multiple issues in construction due to our landlord and the city inspectors. All along Lamar and Lynn were on our side and helped guide us through each issue that came up. Especially helping get through additional inspections that arose due to the city sending out different inspectors that wanted contradictory things done on site. Due to the years they’ve spent building around Columbus and other states they’ve worked with a lot of inspectors and contractors. Their reputation with the inspectors for doing things correctly helped us move forward as quickly as possible and finish the construction here at Brenz Pizza Co.
Once we finished construction and opened, as with every new build, we found there were a few things that would need to be adjusted and fixed. Lamar didn’t accept the last check and walk away from the project. He always came back to check in and get things adjusted to suit our needs so we could focus on the pizza business instead of finishing construction.
Generally when I talk to other restaurant owners, everyone talks about how much of a nightmare the construction process is. Ours wasn’t by any means an easy project due to the issues, but Roose Company helped make it a great learning experience and proved they’d go above and beyond what I expected of them to get our store completed and open. I look forward to working with Roose Company on future stores and wholeheartedly recommend them to you on any of your projects.
