Chris installed my flagpole a year ago and I could not ask for someone more professional and more passionate about what they do for a living. Just outstanding service. A perfect installation. There is no need to call any other company to put your flagpole up. Don’t waste your time. America the Beautiful is easily the best out there!!
I’m so incredibly proud that Chris Macaluso chose Oradell as the home for his business, America The Beautiful Flags & Flagpoles, located at the train station. Since meeting Chris many years ago, he has proven time and time again what a good-hearted, giving person he is through his generosity and service to Oradell as well as many other communities. The veterans in Paramus suffered an act of vandalism and Chris, his team, and others came together to right this wrong. Kudos to you Chris and everyone who made restoring the Paramus VFW’s flagpole a reality.
“I have a 25 ft, old and heavy steel flagpole on my property. I fly the flag 24/7, 365. Recently, a windstorm knocked my pulley and rope loose and knocked the Flag to the ground. Fortunately, an unidentified Patriot passerby found the flag on the ground and neatly and properly folded it and placed it on my wall. I called around to find a company who would be able to repair my pulley and replace the worn damaged rope. Chris replied promptly to all of my emails, gave me a good price and scheduled me in quickly! When he arrived with his crew, we discussed the best approach to make the repairs. He was thoroughly knowledgeable, professional and best of all he loves what he does! The new repairs are amazing! Old Glory is back waving and the pole looks even better now! There is a lot of good people in this world and Chris is a prime example. Thanks Chris for who you are, and for what you do!”
Chris and team very friendly, attentive and helpful from the first call. I wanted to have a flag pole installed in my front yard. Before we spoke about the pole Chris was concerned about my yard and asked about sprinkler systems and any else that the pole would effect. It was comforting to know he was concerned about me first and not profit. He explained everything on the phone, met with me at the house, explained everything to my wife and I and we agreed to get a flag pole. Also, even after the pole went up the company has followed up numerous times to tell us about when to fly the flag at half staff and also how to protect the concrete base from getting water in it and cracking. It is very reassuring to know there is a company that doesn’t forget their customers after the sale and is also looking out for the customer.
I had a very pleasant experience with America the Beautiful. Chris was very informative, professional and on schedule. Further, Chris has been very generous with his time post flagpole installation. He has always made himself available to answer any questions I have had. America the Beautiful is a joy to do business with.
I’ve been a customer of America The Beautiful since they opened in 2018. I’ve used their services on several occasions, from installing flag mounts on my home’s exterior to installing a weather vane on the roof of my garage. Chris and his team have always been professional, reliable, honest, reasonably priced and a pleasure to do business with. They do outstanding work and are highly recommended.
We cannot say enough about Chris and his team. We had been dreaming of getting a flagpole for years. We called & Chris came out quickly, gave us great suggestions, options and we felt the price was extremely reasonable. The team that installed the base, all the way up to the flagpole itself were incredible. It looks fantastic and we couldn’t be more pleased. We also appreciate the emails that we get letting us know of half-staff days. Can’t recommend enough and we do whenever anyone asks where we got our beautiful flagpole!
For quite some time I wanted to install a flagpole in tribute to my father, a WW2 veteran. The one we had hung on the face of our home wasn’t enough. A friend recommended Chris so I called. He quickly came for an estimate and I was surprised how reasonable the job was. From beginning to end everything went smoothly and exactly how he said. We all love driving up to our house seeing the American flag fly. I highly recommend Chris and his staff at America the Beautiful. He does beautiful work and is a great person as well. Thanks Chris for everything.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Chris for over 10 years. He has a natural leadership style that enables his team members to give their all and their best. He has been a great mentor to me and others, and I have modeled many of his behaviors and practices in my own life, both personal and professional. Considering ‘hard and soft’ skills required to be a well-rounded leader, I can think of very few others of his caliber.
I worked with Chris when he was the General Manager at The Governor Morris/Westin Morristown Hotel. He was a very effective team leader, always leading by example. He has a passion for hospitality and instilled that in others. Chris always had a visible presence in the hotel both to associates and to guests. He always challenged you as an individual to reach your potential while supporting and guiding you along the way. Chris empowers his team and provides a learning environment for his associates. He promotes team work while recognizing individual talents and needs.
I have known Chris Macaluso for well over 20 years, having managed him in his first position in the hospitality industry. I was pleased and proud to observe as his career blossomed. Chris and I have kept in touch over the years, and I have always known him to be passionate about whatever endeavor he has chosen. He is energetic, honest and ethical. He would be an asset to any organization and I know he will bring that same passion and customer service to your property!
Chris is a personification of Integrity, hard work, dedication, sincerity and consistency.
It is refreshing indeed to know that when dealing with Chris, one gets nothing but perfection and high quality work! I highly recommend Chris not just for the quality of work he does, but also for the wonderful human being that he is. He is a gem of a person.
Chris is an exceptional candidate for any operational and/or sales & marketing position he pursues. In the hospitality industry, it is a rare individual who can assume roles in either discipline, but Chris has proven over and over again that he can master tasks and work loads that require great authority, creativity, strategy and well thought-out execution. In the 20+ years I have known him, his career progression has shown how his superiors have rewarded him with increased responsibility and greater challenges. And with each new position, he has always risen to the occasion by employing best practices and achieving substantial results. Chris is a rare find in today’s hospitality world!
Chris is a great guy to work with. He is highly competent and conscientious in everything he does. I’ve known him for about twenty-five years now and seen him tackle numerous businesses including a long stint with the Marriot Corporation where he became general manager of first class hotel properties. I am sure this latest venture will prove fruitful for you and your company. Please feel free to contact me directly if I can be of any further assistance.
Chris is a hard working and honest person. He is highly skilled and motivated to finish the task at hand. There are few people who take great pride in what they do and Chris is one of those people.
When you work with Chris you get the hardest working dedicated ally you could want. He is detail oriented and leaves nothing to chance. On top of that he is easy to talk to and easy work with. There is no one better.
I worked with Chris for 3yrs at the Westin hotel in Morristown, one of the best general managers I have ever worked with, absolutely trustworthy and ethical, which for me are two of the most important qualities a person can have.
