June Member of the Month

We are excited to celebrate Seneca Blueprint Co., Inc. as our June Member of the Month!

Seneca Blueprint has been involved in the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce since 1954. They give the words “family business” a whole new meaning. Started in 1933 by Ella and Herbert Knight, the company is now run by their grandson and sole owner and president, Rick Knight. Knight is the third generation to own the Union Road business staple. Although blueprints and printing may be their specialty, the company services everyone from architects and engineers, to those looking to pick out the perfect shipping tube. With surveying tools and construction calculators available, Knight sees a wide variety of customers on a daily basis. This one-stop-shop has printing capabilities for businesses of any size, as banners and signage are made regularly on high end printers and machines.

As so many designers are turning to technology based programs, like CAD Software, Knight recognizes how things are changing, but that pencil to paper is never going to go away.

Knight shared, “When you hire a landscaper, they’re not going to bring a big computer on site. They are going to a have a blueprint and pencil to erase and make changes right in front of you.”

Once in a while, he’ll get a young entrepreneur come in to pick out the perfect mechanical pencil. His shop truly has high end, affordable products that you can’t find elsewhere.

Chances are, your business needs something that Seneca Blueprint can provide. Going on their 63rd year of Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce membership, we’re proud to celebrate Seneca Blueprint!

July Member of the Month

The Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce was proud to celebrate Mazurek’s Bakery as our July Member of the Month!
In 1933, the bakery was purchased by Mr and Mrs Mazurek who created traditional Polish treats and breads for the residents of Cheektowaga and Buffalo. To give you an idea of the times, the Mazurek’s rented the space upstairs to a dentist for just $10 a month!
Five years ago, Ty Reynolds took over the bakery.  Reynolds keeps the bakery traditional for the staple and regular customers. With the rise of his social media platforms and website, a younger demographic of customers has started coming in as well. Keeping up with tradition, he often suggests items that younger customer’s grandparents would have had in the 30's 40's and 50's.
A favorite among Mazurek’s customers are their donuts. With the same exact recipe from 1933, Mazurek’s is the only area bakery to make the recipe right from scratch. Reynold’s also tries to keep ingredients local whenever possible, helpi…

This gives you a conversation starting point.
