Restaurant Design & Construction Specialist

After an extensive career in the Semi-conductor engineering industry and founding Stenzel Development, Tom has developed a solid reputation by blending a unique compilation of expertise for your next Food & Beverage buildout or Remodel project.

As a licensed General Contractor in North & South Carolina, Tom provides clients with a valuable expertise that combines his background in restaurant operations with a keen eye for detail when it comes to bringing your restaurant vision to life. He understands not just the construction elements, but how your kitchen and dining room should flow.



    His family developed Papa Gino’s, a 300+ unit pizzeria brand across the Northeast US. Later, he became the first franchisee for the Pi-Squared Pizza franchise out of Hendersonville, NC. It was during this time that he crossed paths with Sherman Walters, the current CEO of National Restaurant Properties, when the two were both working in the Greenville SC area.

    “Tom brings such a unique eye to each project, and I recognized that almost immediately,” says Sherman. “And the more I understood how dedicated he was to quality craftsmanship & his client’s budgets; I knew I wanted to bring him into our fold to serve our clients. Those are rare qualities in that industry.”

    Tom has developed quite a legacy in client satisfaction by consistently meeting the demands of budget constraints and tight timelines, without sacrificing credibility and integrity. Tom’s focus is merging his love of restaurant operations with an expertise as a quality contractor – and providing clients with transparent pricing.
