I have worked with Joe/Loraine and their team since 1998.  First at my restaurants and nightclubs and then later with Waterfront Concerts.  Their are few subcontractors that I can count on day or night to address any issues I might have with my refrigeration or restaurant equipment than that of the Powell team.  They are truly second to none in their field and I would highly recommend them to any Continue Reading

He was our guy for gas equipment, dish machine, or refrigeration problems. We now have our own restaurant and use Joe and the crew. Recently, we had our walk in cooler rebuilt. Joe spearheaded the job, lining up the contractors and Continue Reading

Lima Murray Dunkin Donuts June 6, 2016

We have been working with Powell refrigeration exclusively for almost 20 years now. They are simply the best. Being Dunkin Donut franchisees, its critical that when equipment goes down, it must be repaired right away, significant down time is not an option. Joe, Lorraine, Walter, Paul Mark, and Jack are right there for us every time we call. Thanks so much.
