Stansell Properties & Development, LLC is a general contractor that specializes in commercial construction, primarily restaurant and retail construction. The company was founded by Harold Stansell in 2006. With over 30 years of experience, Harold is one of the most recognized names in Florida and in the McDonalds restaurants circles. In 2014, John Stege purchased the company from Harold and his wife, Sheryl.
Keeping the Stansell name was a simple choice due to the already great reputation and name recognition. Since John purchased it, the company has seen tremendous, rapid growth across the Southeast. John and partner Jim Kurtz, who joined Stansell in 2017, expanded the business model by adding JTS Contracting, building up a team of quality people, gaining more national account clients, and expanding their territory. In 2021, Angelica Stege purchased 51% the company and was named CEO with John remaining as president. With this transition, SPD became one of the only woman-owned general contractors in Florida. Also, this transition enhanced the culture, created more work opportunities, and emphasized the importance of diversity both within the company and in the workforce.
SPD has completed projects for many recognizable brands including: McDonald’s, Chick-Fil-A, First Watch, Wild Fork Foods, 7-Eleven, Village Medical Center, Dunkin, True Food Kitchen, Taco Bell, Outback Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Chili’s, and Pie Five Pizza. Since 2014, we have maintained licenses necessary in 18 US states: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.
SPD has completed over 1500 projects varying in scope from facilities repairs, interior remodels, restroom remodels, exterior remodels, drive-thru remodels, demolition to rebuild, new ground-up construction, and almost anything in between. We seek to learn our customers’ needs then do everything we can to meet their expectations. We are a customer service company that is good at construction!
We have achieved our success with a diverse and growing group of professionals. We are proud of our history, our progress, and our dedicated team, and we are so excited to see what the future has in store for us.
