Telman, LLC.

About Us

How we are making a difference in the distribution industry -

Changing the game through innovation

Telman was founded by Max Levin during his undergraduate studies at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. 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 a later sustained value proposition, Telman expanded its core competencies to other industries including Vending & Micro Markets, retail stores and merchants, correction facilities, and entertainment. 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.

Our promise

We understand our responsibility to make a positive impact on the hotels we supply, the different products we bring to market, and especially the planet we share. Telman has integrated practices to help protect our environment and evolve our organizational sustainability for the better.

Creating a strong culture

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

Our Foundational Blueprint to Success

As a small business in a highly competitive industry, service and the standards we practice are at the core of our foundational structure. With this, we’ve made sure to have a way for our customers to contact us 24/7. Whether that be by phone or by email, it is important for us to have a channel available to help customers with any and all questions they may have.   Today, we have on-site customer representatives answering phones from 5am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Have a problem with your account or order? We are here to help; and our support team is trained to fix any problem that a valued customer has. Outside of these business hours, customers could send our support team an email, and have a response within minutes. Our team is continuously evolving how we help our customers, and finding new ways to prevent problems from occurring.     Any company could distribute supplies, and there are many who do; but it’s how we go about it that makes Telman different. Our company was founded on four core values, which are at the foundation of how we operate as an organization. 
Core Value 1


Telman takes the extra initiative in demonstrating a high level of integrity for the products we sell and how we get them to our customers. We make sure that your order is in stock, picked correctly, packaged professionally, and then delivered on time. Either it’s perfect, or it’s not good enough, and we strive for that perfect experience every time.
Core Value 2


Whether you’re a customer service representative, driver, or warehouse picker; we take ownership and pride in our work and promptly fix mistakes when they occur. Lets face it, mistakes happen. But it's up to us to make things right, and then make sure they never happen again. Telman, and our team, love what we do, and strive to make sure our customers are happy.
Core Value 3


In addition to providing a unique service, different from our competitors within the space, we also practice trustworthy and authentic organizational behavior in and outside of work. We at Telman hold high standards for ourselves and our team, and work together to provide a simple and straightforward service to our many loyal customers.
Core Value 4


This core value encompasses our love for hospitality and drive to benefit our partners and customers. Distribution is quickly evolving and we constantly make an effort to not only stay ahead of the curve, but create it. Passion for what we do is tightly aligned with our organizational culture and how we operate on a daily basis.
