"Ted did everything that he could on my behalf and I could not have been more pleased in his role as my broker. He was both diligent and thorough. Thank you again.
- TED, MONSTER EATS

"Tami! I would recommend her 1000 times over. She definitely knows what she’s doing and she’s not just good at it…she is exceptional! Keith says he deals with a lot of good negotiators and she’s up there with the best. And I enjoyed working with her so much. It’s a stressful transition and she never once made it more stressful. She always put me at ease and I always trusted that I was in good hands with her. So THANK YOU!

"I have yet to meet a broker that will work as hard as Ted!
- JIM, THAI THAI EXPRESS

"Ted Aretos was our broker on the sale of our restaurant and I must say of all the business transactions I have had with brokers, Ted and EatZ was the best experience I have had in many years. Ted is very communicative, thorough, responsive and a pleasure to work with. He is detailed oriented and kept me at ease as the sale progressed through to the closing. I would recommend Ted Aretos for your restaurant transaction. We were listed with another broker and after we listed with EatZ, they had 3 offers within 3 days. Excellent customer service and very experienced with restaurants both on the sale and purchase sides!
