Pursuing the American Dream

Elegant Restaurant Equipment Owner and CEO, Albert Kataev, came to America in pursuit of the American dream. When he arrived from the Soviet Union, he had nothing. He came in with a group of refugees and worked in the diamond district for two years, where he learned English and began gaining experience in the HVAC industry. Over the years, he worked on HVAC systems for more than 90 government buildings.

Once he became fluent in the English language, Kataev rented a commercial building from a landlord he had been working with where he was able to start his own HVAC maintenance company. It’s here where he began a focus on installing and maintaining restaurant equipment for restaurant owners throughout the area. Over the years, this business has become one of the best providers of commercial kitchen equipment in New York, helping Kataev take a step closer to his American dream.
