Our Start – how Telman’s making a difference

Telman was founded in 2017 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. 

So Whats next, huh? 

Well, you’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg…

In order to retain customers, especially in the competitive wholesale distribution industry that we’re in, Telman is ever-so focusing on customer service and our 

relationships with customers. We, as a small business, want to find ways to get better products at better prices, to allow businesses the opportunity to operate more efficiently. This value proposition, in addition to our efforts of vertically integrating our supply chain, we believe will create a more seamless experience for our customers.
