  9. 9. “When we completely redesigned and remodeled our 8,000 square foot Hibiscus Golf Club in Naples, Florida, landing the General Hotel and Restaurant Supply design team was a God send for us. They transformed our existing golf club constructed in 1980 into a modern day wonder. We got everything we wanted and more. The design team was professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Most of all they gave us the quality in furnishings and equipment that we needed, while adhering to our budget and saving us thousands of dollars. Thanks to the GHRS Design Team that worked so hard for us at Hibiscus Golf Club, we are proud of our new home, and would welcome the opportunity to work with the General Team again.” Allan Cooper, General Manager Hibiscus Golf Club
  10. 10. Project Highlighted: Lobby Bar
  13. 13. Remodel and redesign of new 728 room property on Miami Beach, Florida. ASSIGNMENT: Design new kitchens in multiple towers to accommodate guests in restaurants, banqueting and room service. GHRS LEADERSHIP: Plans were developed for permitting after months of work with property ownership and staff. Final MEP's were completed. At the last minute, GHRS was informed that the hotel needed to comply with new fire standards and a new 8' hallway had to be constructed through the existing kitchen design. We reconfigured the plan within three weeks for permitting to accommodate this last minute requirement. In effect, GHRS had to redraw the kitchen and provide revised MEP's for final permitting. This quick turnaround saved tens of thousands of dollars for property ownership in reduced construction costs.
  14. 14. The Biltmore Hotel is renowned amongst the most luxury hotels of the world, and we endure many renovations to maintain that status. Recently, we remodeled our Fontana Restaurant's exhibition kitchen and rebuilt our Golf Clubhouse. General Hotel & Restaurant Supply provided outstanding service in assisting with the design of these two projects. Not only did they procure the equipment needed on a timely basis and within budget, but the General Hotel team was consistently available to respond amiably to any questions we possessed, and was expeditious in resolving any problems that arose. We must make special mention of our account representative, whose sincere professionalism and utmost service contribute to the reason why we at the Biltmore are beyond satisfied with General Hotel & Restaurant Supply. We have and will continue to use General Hotel for much of our daily needs in operating our fine resort. Respectfully, Edmundo Perez, Chief Engineer The Biltmore Hotel

  16. 16. Thru my involvement with six different brands you have helped to build over 100 restaurants for me and helped remodel them to the tune of 300 remodels. I guess that qualifies me to say I know your operation. The reason we keep coming back is because of the little extra services you have provided us over the years. Your design element is and will be essential to us. Your ability to advise us of what's new and what is better energy-wise keeps us coming back. I've enjoyed the partnership in building that has formed over the last 29 years that we have worked together to build restaurants thru out Florida. Thank you for your help and assistance. My best wishes to you for another 55 years of success! Bob Leonard Consultant to the Restaurant Business
