“P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc. has been doing business with Dean Stroope of BD Lighting since 1997. The relationship PF Chang’s has with Dean and BD Lighting has been and continues to be one of the best. He has helped us through the years with all of our new lighting designs. He has taken our visions and made them a reality. When a problem comes up on a new construction job site or at an existing restaurant Dean puts on his “Superman” suit and gets it resolved immediately. If all of our vendors responded with the same care, understanding, professionalism and charisma as BD Lighting life would be sweet and easy. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending BD Lighting to everyone.”

“For 16 years I have been creating restaurant and hospitality environments. One of the most consistent comments I have received is that the lighting is fantastic. Providing creative customized light fixtures that are unique to each client is an important part of developing the brand identity with in the architecture and interior design of a space. For 16 years, BD Lighting has been my first choice for the fabrication of custom and decorative light fixtures. I am always confident in using BD Lighting because no matter the complexity of the design, I can collaborate with Dean in order to arrive at the best and most effective means for turning ideas into realities. BD Lighting is consistently on time and on budget, and I appreciate the professional communication throughout the fabrication process. Ultimately, the quality, care and attention to detail that Dean brings to every project is evident in the dynamic success of the final product. I recommend BD Lighting for any custom lighting needs large or small.”

“I have worked with Dean at BD Lighting for over 18 years. As the senior designer/project manager for Pat Kuleto Restaurants for 13 years I worked with Dean on many high-end, custom projects, with tight budgets.

Not only that, he is a terrific guy and great fun to work with!”

“I’ve worked with Dean and his guys at BD Lighting for over 10 years. As a designer we go a little crazy with vague drawings and high-end wishes. But Dean makes everyone happy by giving me the look I want and value engineering the fixture to fit into the client’s budget. Above all he’s just a great guy to work with; he’s honest and has the highest integrity.”
