Being in the trades isn’t an easy task. It is most certainly a road less travelled by, and yet there does exist a certain individuality about it.

And individuality is without a doubt a trait I would use to describe Strong Group. Very rarely in our industry does one run into a contractor with as much character and integrity as they possess. A realization that dawned on me some time ago as a first-year apprentice, with no knowledge of who anyone was.

And then I was informed one afternoon that the man whom I had been working beside for weeks and who had treated me with respect and direction, was none other than the owner of the entire company.

And its examples like that which demonstrably set Strong Group apart from the competition. The leadership and comradery shown during each and every experience with Strong Group without a doubt cements our companies’ and my personal opinion that any and all future exchanges together will be eventful and prosperous.

HM Construction

My name is Miguel Martinez, Construction Manager at HM Construction. I am writing this letter to highlight HM Constructions experience working with Jason Ballesteros, Field coordinator at Strong Group, Inc.

First, I would like to say that when l met Jason in Irving, the first Lupe Tortilla project, I instantly noticed the passion of which Jason has for construction, his eye for detail and perfection is always there. His knowledge, diligence, and relationship with subs, is part of his everyday standards and he understands this is the avenue that will lead him to finish his project with quality, on time and on budget. Jason it not only thorough but also easy to work with and is always willing to go the extra mile.

Working with the Stroup Group, Inc. team over the years has been a pleasure. Thank you for giving HM Construction the opportunity to serve you. We appreciate your business and the confidence you have placed in us.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss in detail my experience working with Jason and Strong Group, Inc.

Lupe Tortilla

On behalf of Lupe Tortilla Restaurants, I am please to provide this letter of recommendation for Strong Group Inc., General Contractor.

Strong Group Inc. has been building Ground-up and Remodel projects for Lupe Tortilla for the last 4 years and has become not only our most valued General Contractor but what I would consider a strategic partner in the success of getting our restaurants open on time and within or under budget. Strong Group has also been extremely successful in helping us find ways to value engineer and implement options to keep projects active that were close to being cancelled.

The team at Strong Group is above the standard. Their values of Transparent Communication, Purposeful Planers and Master of Change and Challenges, are just a few of the reasons they are so successful. From the bidding stages to completion, nothing is ever hidden. Their communications through email and the Smartsheet program gives us a daily picture of what the project looks like and every item they are working on to keep the project in motion. Their weekly meetings and 3 week look-ahead planner is constantly keeping us focused on what we need to have ready and delivered as owners. But most important, in the uncertain times of construction we are in today with the unforeseen changes and challenges that arises in every project, Strong Group is above reproach in every way and always help us remain on track by offering ideas to keep us building.

Lupe Tortilla restaurants are a very detailed and complex build. As with any projects, there are many issues that need to be addressed during the construction process. Whether its drawing conflicts, locating unexpected items during a demo, city issues, material shortages or even owner delays, in each case Strong Group is always professional, helpful, and reasonable in their handling of the issue. Their full time Superintends, and Project Managers are of the highest quality and some of the best I have worked with in the past 20 years.

To sum this up, I highly recommend Strong Group Inc. for any size project that you are looking to hire one of the best GC partners possible, they will definitely be on future projects of ours.

Jamba Juice

So another year has come to a close, and I want to reach out to you and thank

you and your entire Team for all the support you have continued to provide to Alameda Juice, dba Jamba Juice.

Over the past 10 plus years, your company has been instrumental in helping our company in so many areas. From the new store planning, building, and problem solving. We have grown from one Jamba Juice store to recently opening our 50th store.

We could always count on your Team to do the right thing. If we have any issues months/years after a store is built… your Team is always very responsive to our needs. The service we have received from you can only be described as Full service.

One of the things I have appreciated about your company is, I have never once felt we were being taken advantage of financially. You have always provided your knowledge and services for a very fair price. You always prepare each project with a detailed account of the costs, and you managed to them. I have never been concerned about being hit with last minute change orders or construction surprises.

While I have always been very impressed with the quality of work you have done for us, I think your finest quality comes from your people. You have some of the sharpest people I have ever worked with in the construction business. Your Team is always professional, knowledgeable and tends to put our needs at the top of their list. They always display a sense of urgency when it comes to working with any of our people. This is a quality that many companies never quite figure out.

Again, thanks to you and your Team, Alameda has been able to focus on serving our Jamba customers, we have been able to leave most of our construction needs/concerns in your hands… and I am grateful for all of your support.

I look forward to many more years of working together with you and your Team.

CEO, Alameda Juice, LLC


To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is in reference to my working experience with the Strong Group.
The Strong Group has played an integral part in the introduction of Chipotle Mexican
Grill in to the Texas Market since our entry last November.
The Strong Group successfully won a bid on our Northeast Mall location in Hurst, TX,
and did an excellent job of constructing this location, given the tight schedule and
site conditions of the job.
The Strong Group has displayed a professional work ethic and a proactive approach to
problem solving when issues have arisen.
I would be willing to use the Strong Group for future projects, and also recommend them
to others.

If you need the big company skill set, but want a locally operated company that is more focused on its client relationship, then you want The Strong Group.  Attention to detail, exceeding expectations and being fair is attributes that to name for most construction companies, but they meet every single one. Strong Group anticipates our needs and has our best interest at heart.  I would highly recommend Strong Group for any commercial contracting job, big or small. – Mark Cohen, President

Mike Leatherwood

I started working with Strong Group when we hired them to complete the remodel of the Razzoo’s Cajun Cafe in Mesquite, Texas in 2005 as well as the remodel of the Razzoo’s in Fort Worth, Texas that same year.

In 2006, Strong Group remodeled the Bone Daddy’s location in Dallas, Texas and built the new Bone Daddy’s in Grapevine, Texas. I’ve been working with Chris Scarborough and Mike Anderson ever since.

I was immediately impressed by the quality of their work and their attention to detail. Mike, Chris and the members of their team are terrific when it comes to resolving issues as they arise and are always in communication with me and my team as the projects progress. The people at Strong Group work with my architects and designers to find ways to bring down the cost of each project without sacrificing the look of the finished product.

There have been many times over the past 16 years when we’ve had issues in our restaurants that need immediate attention, from storm damage to fires, and Strong Group is at the top of the list of the people we trust to move quickly to handle our issues. The message to my team has always been, call 911, then call Chris.

If you are looking for a true partner that is committed to excellence and that operates with high levels of integrity, you would be hard pressed to find a better fit than the people at Strong Group.

Mike & Chris:

Thank you so much for all your help and support in being a great partner and friend to Cristina’s. We appreciate your dedication and sense of urgency to our needs, from new construction and remodels, to 911 repairs. Over the years you have been right there with us to advise, assist and act as any good partner should.

The new construction project in Murphy was a great example of how your team was there to provide support. Through all of the normal issues, the curve-ball challenges and change orders, your team was a pleasure to work with. Those were long hours and many obstacles along the way, but your guys never lost their cool or patience.

Thanks again for all that you do. We look forward to many more years of partnering with the Strong Group.
