About Us

Our mission is simple, “Bringing Hospitality to Distribution”. We understand how difficult it is to run a business and want to make the process of sourcing products as easy and seamless as possible. 

Our Story

Telman was founded in 2017 by Keith Levin. He saw a void in how hotel’s were sourcing supplies for their pantry’s and the excessive capital expenditures it incurred, and wanted to create an intuitive platform that yielded inventory efficiency for operators. With this idea came the start of Telman, a cloud based online supply infrastructure for the hospitality and hotel industry that allowed users to purchase inventory on a single unit basis. After a successful launch, and later sustained value proposition, Telman expanded its core competencies to other industries including Vending & Micro Markets, Retail Stores and Merchants, Correction Facilities, and Entertainment and Movie Theaters. Today, we house over 5,000 different products of both perishable and non-perishable supplies and service clients across the Tri-State area, from small family independent operators to large flagged franchises.

Core Values

Telman was founded with FOUR core values. These foundational beliefs have cultivated our strong company culture and solidified how we operate as an organization.

Taking ownership and pride in our work and promptly fixing mistakes when they occur.


Practicing trustworthy and authentic organizational behavior in how we do business.


Fueling our love for hospitality and driving innovation to benefit our partners and customers


Developing an all-inclusive, family like culture, is at the core of our organization and sets us apart from our competition. We pride ourselves on being different, and utilizing our flat organizational structure for unprecedented outcomes and accomplishments.
