Our Client Testimonials
Below are testimonials from our amazing clients in the restaurant, hotel, and commercial food service industries.
Where do I begin? My experience working with Victor was INCREDIBLE! Victor literally helped me change the look and feel of my production/prep area while improving efficiencies. I took EVERY ounce of advice he gave me from giving my prep area a complete make over (we painted and created an aesthetically more appealing retail section), to moving equipment to improve efficiencies during peak hours, to improving product profit margins, to advice on operations for a smoother process altogether. He followed up with a detailed report with even more helpful and useful tools. He went above and beyond my expectations and was generous with his time and sharing his years of experience in the food industry. He genuinely wants to see his customers SUCCEED and he has the tools to help any restaurant/cafe owner!! If you are looking to grow your food business, you won’t regret contacting Victor for a consultation. I was blown away with what I learned and how his advice WORKS! Thank you so very much Victor!!
Mise Designs is nothing short of amazing. Victor is a master when it comes to space planning. There are so many check-boxes, if you will, that enable him to design a killer kitchen: he is an incredible listener; he is passionate about beautiful and clean design that creates a seamless workflow environment; he’s honest and humble and respectful; and because of his culinary background, who better that Victor to know what it’s like to work every day in a space that you truly love. Hands down, from monster projects to a 300 square foot space, Victor is the ultimate designer, and his incredibly detailed CAD drawings are like a crystal ball. Your vision becomes his mission …Mise Designs is simply the best.
I have worked with Victor at Mise Designs on several projects, and it has always been a pleasure. They have a broad range of experience with all types of kitchens. This is helpful, because it means they can help you with anything from a steamer to a tandoori oven. The fact that Victor is also a trained chef means that he really understands how people use their kitchens, and can apply that knowledge to put together an efficient and effective design. I like the fact that I can rely on Mise’s expertise without worrying about whether they understand the relevant codes.
I highly recommend this professional, talented, and experienced design firm to all of my commercial kitchen clients.
I have been extremely pleased with the work that Victor and Mise Designs has provided to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. He worked very well with a group of church members who, as a committee, explained how they use the kitchen and what works and what doesn’t. From their meetings, Victor prepared an excellent master plan that met and exceeded all of the committee’s requests. He has also been a great help in providing support for two projects involving food storage needs for the Ardmore Food Pantry. Victor is my “go to guy” when it comes to kitchen planning services.
We are opening a restaurant in Provo, UT, and Mise Designs, especially Victor Cardamone, were exceptional!! They were a true advocate for everything we wanted to get done, and were extremely patient for everything we didn’t know that they had to explain!!!
If you are looking for expert advice on any form of kitchen design, I would highly recommend Mise Designs. I promise you, you won’t go wrong!!!
I am working on my second project with Victor and Mise Designs. The spaces I’ve given Victor to design have been structurally challenging. But he has given me, in both instances, very efficient workable kitchens. His knowledge as a chef and his familiarity with health department food code has ensured my projects were, and will be, ready for speedy health department approval and that I am able to start working quickly at project’s end.
We’ve worked with Mise Designs on several occasions and they have quickly become our go to company for food service design and equipment supply for the properties managed by Emcor. They consistently deliver on their promises, which is exactly what you want from a design and equipment contractor.
Victor knows his stuff when it comes to food and beverage in a club environment, for both front and back of the house. He provided leadership in the process even as he respected the input of other parties to the project. He is a true collaborator. We are looking forward to a great result.
I wanted to take this opportunity to commend and thank you for all of your hard work and efforts in designing the kitchens and several food service outlets at the Hilton Kampala project. Because of your understanding of the Hilton requirements and needs, Hilton Hotels Worldwide has approved the designs allowing us to move forward to the next stage of implementation. Allow this letter to serve as a recommendation of your company to other hotel owners for Mise’s timely and cost effective designs meeting the hotel operator’s standards.
Working Victor and Mise Designs has been an absolute pleasure! His professionalism and expertise in the design field, along with extensive experience as a chef; paved the way for a smooth renovation process and speedy opening of our cafe in Bermuda. Even though we were a thousand miles apart, communication was a breeze and plans were ready quickly and efficiently; approved by planning, health and fire department inspections without any problems. We have built a great business relationship and have never hesitated to consult with them with any issues that crop up. Victor has been happy to help, every time. They will be our first choice as we look to expand in the near future!
Victor is highly intelligent and works diligently. He sets his targets and meets them on time. Victor is detailed oriented along with knowledge that supersedes any projects expectations.
We recently worked with Victor Cardamone on the design and implementation of a cafe & juice bar for our new health and fitness club. He brought a level of professionalism and experience to our job that made the difference between a so-so job and an outstanding product! His knowledge of commercial kitchen work spaces, equipment layouts and work flows was responsible for our club having a cafe and bar that has become a leading profit center and the social ‘heart’ of our club. He was always available to us when we needed him and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend him!
Although we have not completed our project yet, I can confidently say that Victor’s work is exemplary. He is easy to work with and has been patient and held my hand through any process I was not comfortable with. His designs are functional and attractive and we are very excited to see the finished product!
