Ted Savoy
Principal/Sales/Managing Partner

Rob's foodservice experience started while working for a small foodservice dealership outside of Frederick, MD in 1984. This position ultimately led Rob to the position of Director of Sales for one of the nation’s largest foodservice equipment dealerships. His responsibilities included supervision of a large sales force, as well as overall day to day management decisions and oversight of the purchasing department. Rob personally handled the sales of multiple national accounts, large private foodservice institutions as well as numerous Hotel's and Country Clubs.

In 1992, after Rob was hired as Director of Sales for another large equipment dealership, he began his working career with Ted Savoy. From the beginning they developed an instant connection when transforming a client’s concept into reality. They found that their listening skills, in addition to their many years of experience developing such projects have helped them to develop a nationwide client base.

In November of 1996 Savoy Brown opened its doors in Jessup, Maryland. Since then Rob has established himself as a leader in the area of design and development. While under his supervision Savoy Brown has grown to be a leader in the foodservice consulting field.

Rob has served as a member of the Board of Directors for the Restaurant Association of Maryland, as well as Co-Chairmen for the Mid Atlantic Restaurant Show. Furthermore, Savoy Brown along with the Restaurant Association developed Cafe 2000 which was the predecessor of the Restaurant of the Future which was unveiled at NRA in 2005.

Steven Brown
Sales/Project Manger/Specifier

Having graduated with honors from Indiana University, Steve’s food service background began while working for various restaurants from the age of 14. This background has allowed him to gain an understanding of the operations of food service facilities both in the back and front of the house. Since his graduation from IU, Steve has been gaining the knowledge and understanding of industry as a result of working along side the design, sales and equipment specification departments. Since Steve arrived at Savoy-Brown Consultants he has also been working with a key national account on a regional basis, consulting and specifying equipment for their sales people and clients. This account has given him a broad understanding of all the latest trends and innovations in heavy commercial foodservice equipment. He is currently gaining knowledge and experience of project management while working in the field along side of Rob, Ted and Lucy. Finally, he is developing an understanding on the use of CAD and hopes to expand this knowledge in the future as he develops his path in the industry.

Lucy Titz
Project/Office Manager

Working in various jobs in the food service industry has provided Lucy with the foundation which has landed her in the food service consulting industry. After relocating from NJ to MD in 1979 she worked her way up to a management position for one of the nation’s top 20 foodservice equipment broadliners. Lucy’s training and background came from hands on experience and has translated into practical experience when working with clients.

In 1998 Lucy came to Savoy-Brown as the company was going through a major growth. Lucy’s background has allowed her to specify equipment, project manage jobs and work in the capacity of office manager. The diverse nature of Savoy-Brown Consultants business has allowed Lucy to work with all types of clients from small individually owned clients to national chain accounts. Additionally, the growth of Savoy-Brown Consultants commissary business has allowed Lucy to become a cook chill specialist.

Lucy feels that “You must understand all areas of a project and how one relates to another in the development of a project. This enables me to not only communicate with architects and general contractors but also the sub-trades in the field. I have a better grasp of their concerns and issues and am better able to help find a solution to their issues.”

Lucy looks forward to working with all new and returning clients in the future.

Samantha Difendall

Prior to working at Savoy-Brown Consultants, Samantha had a key role in the sales, organization and growth of the Mid-Atlantic Food, Beverage & Lodging Expo for nearly 6 years.

Her ability to learn quickly and her attention to detail have made her an ideal candidate for the position of Equipment Specifier. As an Equipment Specifier, Samantha’s responsibilities include reviewing restaurant designs while addressing customer’s concerns in order to produce a costly and effective equipment package.
