To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing this letter to confirm that Cassnik Contracting has worked with in the past and are currently working with Joann Fabrics Stores, LLC (JAS) building new locations as one of our preferred GC’s. Cassnik has built out locations for us in several states and currently is building out 4 locations in 3 different states.
(JAS) builds can range from 14000 SF to over 40,000 SF in size, we do ground up and fit outs of all sizes. We select our preferred GC’s based off of a national vetting process and extensive background investigations. All GC’s must maintain a qualified status while working for (JAS), this includes following all local laws, codes and insurance requirements. Winning GC’s are then required to bid every job against at least 4 qualified bidders to win.
Cassnik Contracting remains qualified to continue to work for (JAS) on every job and will remain a preferred GC for us as long as they maintain their level of professionalism and dedication to ensuring the custom (JAS) receives all work completed as per agreed.

I just wanted to thank you and your entire staff for an outstanding job done at our Houlihan’s restaurants in Strongsville, OH and Philadelphia, PA locations.
Your superintendents, assistant project manager and project manager did a fantastic job on these projects from start to finish. Considering the modifications and challenges we presented, your staff maintained poise and integrity throughout. Not only did these projects stay within budget, but these projects were done ahead of schedule.
It has been a true pleasure working with everyone at Cassnik Contracting and I certainly look forward to an ongoing relationship as Houlihan’s builds in the future.

We look forward to working with you on your next project.
Friendly knowledgeable people. Always very knowledgeable about what is needed to complete a job. They understand the responsibilities of all the other trades and time sequences needed to meet the project schedule requirements. Always a pleasure to work with these guys from fit-outs to ground ups.
I have been doing steelwork for Cassnik contracting for several years now. They have always kept me busy,( sometimes too busy) I have done several Harbor Freights and JoAnn fabrics for them and have never had any major problems. They are all a great bunch of people to work for, from the office people to the supervisors on the job. It would be very hard to find a better company to work for.
