“As the largest franchisee of Taco John’s Restaurants, Pentex has worked with several contractors over the years. Joe Turbak and his team at Crestone Builders exceeded our expectation on our recent project in Huron, SD. The project encounted many unknowns, and the Crestone team did a solid job of addressing the issures and adjusting to the problems caused by a difficult site and a new building prototype.

Joe maintained regular communication with our office and was responsive when any questions arose. We also appreciated that invoicing and change orders were accurate, sent timely and always backed up with supporting documentation.

Pentex would partner with Crestone Builders on future projects.”

– Brett Itterman
CEO, Pentex Restaurant Group
