RE: Taco Bell – Smyrna, Georgia: I want you to know that Mark M.’s degree of integrity, hard work and dedication to his job is beyond what I have seen in my career in this business. Honestly, folks like him are hard to find.

We at Rouse Properties and The Shoppes at Carlsbad Mall specifically have worked with Venture Construction Company on many different construction projects over the last year and we have been very impressed with the product they have turned over. Venture Constructions high regard to safety, security and quality craftsmanship including the policies and procedures we have here at the mall have contributed to the success of the projects performed. Venture Construction has worked at multiple locations here on the mall’s property and with different tenants including even previous GC’s that have had construction projects going on here with great success. The knowledge and proactiveness we have witnessed regarding the complexity of working around the public, consideration of other tenants and multiple other facets that construction projects in an active public area bring have been excellent.

I am writing to let you know how much we appreciate the superior effort and leadership demonstrated on the CNN project. The project manager demonstrated his character and outstanding leadership qualities by keeping his composure during some very adverse conditions at CNN. Each time an issue surfaced, he showed the values lived by our Founder, Dave Thomas, and are the foundation of Wendy’s culture: put quality in everything you do, treat people with respect, and always do the right thing.
Gary Bogo, Wendy’s International
I am even more pleased now than I was when we met about the performance of your team in Nashville. The Project Manager for our job was exceptional on his communication, paperwork, follow through and knowledge of the intent of the project. The proactive approach made the project a success and this individual understood the intensity of the scope. I believe that his leadership and hard work was the driving force to getting this project completed as needed. I thought I was pushy, but your superintendent’s energy and pride to complete the task at hand as well as emphasis on maintaining quality was a huge factor in making the project a success.
Tom Huch, Construction Manager, Maggiano’s Little Italy
McDonald’s Corporation would like to thank you for the exceptional job on the Southern Style Chicken Rollout. Your commitment and dedication has enabled us to launch a very successful program.

On 2/7/2007 a health compliance officer from the Bureau of Compliance of the North Carolina Division of Occupational Safety and Health conducted a partial inspection of your work site at 603 River Hwy in Mooresville, North Carolina. The Compliance Officer identified no apparent violations of either North Carolina safety standards or regulations. We commend you on maintaining your workplace in this manner, and we appreciate your commitment to protecting the health and safety of your employees.

It was a pleasure working with all of you because of the attention to detail that all of you give to my stores.
Victor Kozma, Director of Construction and Maintenance, Carolina Restaurant Group (Wendy’s franchisee)
I was certainly not looking forward to having the restaurant in turmoil during the Christmas holidays and the thought of losing business because of the construction caused me some concern. I am happy to say that with all that was going on, we still showed increased sales for the month of December. That’s a hard thing to do with so much construction going on both inside and outside the restaurant.
Dru K. Robinson-Mang, Owner-Operator, South Point Enterprises, Inc. (McDonald’s franchisee)
I am writing to express my gratitude to your superintendent. This individual has been most attentive to the construction requirements of this fire district. He has been a pleasure to deal with and as a representative of your business presents a professional and courteous attitude.
George Ellington, Fire Inspector, Cedar Hammock Fire Rescue
The organizational, quality, and relationship skills shown by your superintendent made this project just a pleasure for me. His “creativity” in problem solving was especially helpful. He had a sense of urgency about everything, but not at the expense of quality.
Becky Sharp, Project Manager, McDonald’s Corporation
I was very satisfied with the way you handled all of the details of such a complex project. And the finished product is excellent!
Becky Sharp, Project Manager, McDonald’s Corporation
Brant I do want to thank you for kicking “A” when it comes to getting us timely submittals, making your subs submit our specified products, and for thoroughly checking the submittals prior to dumping them on us (like most project managers do not do). You are the poster child for up front project management.
Don Shows, Jr., Construction Director, Brinker International
Paulon has told me on a number of occasions that Venture Construction in general has been excellent to work with in Tampa. He said they were always extremely attentive to the schedule and to cooperating with Paulon so the job would proceed easily, on schedule and with a minimum of conflict. He has told me several times that he wishes all the superintendents and all the building construction companies were as good to work with as Venture has been. --

After 17 days of being closed for a Refresh, Peachtree Pkwy reopened today. The store looks excellent thanks to Venture Construction, Josh, and all of the subs that worked for them. Also thanks to all who worked who very hard to give the store that clean "Just Built" look. Thanks everyone for all of your hard work! Now, let’s go to work to Satisfy every Customer!
Larry Robbins, Wen-Robb, LLC
You really did a great job at this location. This is your Flagship location and it really shows it. When you top the hill and start coming down the parkway, your location is the best thing on the block. WOW!!!!!! What a great remodel. I hope this project is a great success for your organization.
Gary Bogo, Construction Manager, The Wendy's Company
I wish to commend Walt Norman with Venture Construction in Memphis. He assembles a great team to get the job completed on time and within budget. Equally important to cost is his team's professionalism, knowledge and experience. Perhaps his most valuable asset is initiating creative solutions when challenges arise. Our restaurants constantly receive outstanding reviews from the community and municipality. We are very pleased with Venture's quality of construction over the past years and look forward to continue that string of success.
Ed Czmut, Construction & Development, Popeye's of Memphis
Hilton, I just received a phone call from Chip McGeehan, the O/O at Eldon telling me what a great job your superintendent and Jen did at Eldon. Neither of us get these calls often enough, I wanted to pass it along to you so you could share as you feel appropriate. Great job, thanks for all of the help.
