After leaving Crudo, Louis Pelliccia hired him as a busser at On Broadway, within 6 months of being hired he was promoted all the way up to Operations Manager, this was just the beginning their 10-year working relationship that would carry into their current roles at Parq.
Following On Broadway, Tello relocated to Kress nightclub in Hollywood where he was the Assistant Director of Operations.

Managing all of these nightclubs and restaurants and lastly working for Visco Entertainment led him to where he is now at Parq, back under the wrath of Louis as assistant general manager and loving every minute of it.
