Our history


Telecom Cafe began business in January 1993 as a long distance reseller of AT&T and Sprint. Our original name was Great Plains Telecommunications. After 15 years of operation, we really just got tired of that name and wanted to do something fun. So in 2008 we officially became Telecom Café.

Through the years we have positioned ourselves to provide a myriad of technologies including Cloud Services, Data, Internet, MPLS, Storage, Voice, and VoIP services.

Currently, we provide service and products through more than sixty-five (65) vendors nationwide.

We are a vendor neutral communications company representing all major telephone companies and all major cable companies nationwide.


We provide services such as Google Apps for Business and Microsoft Office 365.

We offer over 15 different IP Phone System providers.

The solutions we offer are based solely on the best interest of our clients and tailored specifically to individual client needs. You can be assured to receive unbiased and objective recommendations with consideration of all available products, plans, and pricing. The evaluations we perform can provide significant savings in both time and money for our clients.


Our entrepreneurial spirit fuels us. We conduct business honestly and ethically and bring forward-thinking solutions to the companies we serve. Unparalleled customer service comes second nature to us and clients have the benefit of a single point of contact for all communication services. Through our agreements, we also have the back office and technical support available through each of our vendors.

Now more than ever, our proven ability to help our clients navigate a shifting and chaotic market, allows Telecom Café to present unique opportunities to the business world. Our goal is to provide the essential services you need at the most cost effective pricing available.

Client Testimonials

  • “The Illinois State Dental Society has had the opportunity to utilize Telecom Café for several years. They have always been able to answer any questions we may have and quickly assisted us when any problems occurred. Our relationship with Telecom Cafe has allowed us to reduce our telephone services costs from our previous vendor, and also offered us insight on how to control costs in the future.”

  • “Telecom Cafe has been a great business partner and asset to Capitol Group for over 15 years.

  • “Telecom Cafe was instrumental in pulling together all of the people/resources we needed to get this project up and running. It was nice knowing that all the information we were getting from Telecom Cafe was accurate. System is working great!”

  • “We have worked with Telecom Café for a number years to implement IP phone systems for several of our offices spread throughout the State of IL. Their representatives are always more than willing to answer any questions that we have and propose solution options that are tailored to our exact needs. They have even gone out of their way to put us in touch with other service providers for projects which were outside of the scope of work that we had contacted them about. They are both courteous and resourceful and I would highly recommend their services to anyone who asks.”

  • Midwest Office has had the privilege of working with Telecom Cafe for more than 15 years, and we greatly value their expertise in all areas of telecommunications. We appreciate the next level support they provide, and for introducing us to such innovative products as Google Apps for Business and the Unified Communications platform we are now using. Both of these products have been tremendous, as advertised by the team at Telecom Cafe.
