True North Companies (www.tnch.com/) of Scottsdale, Arizona is powered by an investment banker named David Tedesco. In June of 2017 he and his company purchased 97 units at the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center. Since then he has attempted to drive the Chinese-American businesses out of the Center.
He bullied Super L Ranch Market, the anchor store, by giving them a thirty day notice to move, almost immediately after the sale closed on the units he purchased. Recently, he locked Beijing Garden out of their space but not before using some of the most boorish tactics people have ever seen used against a tenant. His team cut the phone lines four times, cut the internet lines four time, so Beijing Garden could not take credit cards. He then had his property manager call the electric company to change the service out of Beijing Garden's name and into theirs. Then a few days later, in the middle of lunch, while kitchen workers were cutting vegetables with sharp knives, women were in the restroom, and people were in the Dining area eating, they ordered the electricity to be turned off. Later that night, True North hired a crane service to pluck the exhaust fan off the roof in order to prevent the restaurant from cooking. THEY DID THIS AT THREE IN THE MORNING! If that was horrible enough, they then waited until the next afternoon and then called the Phoenix Fire Department falsely reporting that they smelled smoke and that customers were complaining of breathing problems. There are currently two active police investigations into True North, 668 North Company and the illegal way they treated their tenant, Beijing Garden. This video exposes the three companies owned by True North that power their rude and in some cases illegal actions against the Chinese-American businessmen who have called the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center their home for decades. The three companies we outline in this video, Realty Executive (www.realtyexecutives.com), Passport Health (www.passporthealthusa.com) and Pump It Up - Fun Brands (www.pumpitupparty.com) are the engine behind True North Companies and 668 North. Without franchise fees and seed money from these three companies, True North could not treat Chinese-Americans with such utter disrespect and discrimination. In the video, we encourage each viewer to
