Congratulations to Mill Creek Café, located in Honeoye, New York, who decided to close their restaurant the day before Thanksgiving so they could prepare 200 Thanksgiving meals to give away to anyone who wants them.
From their Facebook page, “…In case you missed the memo, it’s a crazy world out there. The holidays are going to be unlike any other this year. A sense of normal is what we need more than ever… ironic! After talking to some of our customers we see how close to home this is really hitting. We want to try and be a positive force in this sea of chaos. We decided not to open for business as usual next Wednesday. Instead, we will be doing 200 Thanksgiving dinners (that will max out our capacity) for you, our neighbors, our friends, our families. These meals are free to anyone who wants them or needs them or just loves turkey, like we do. If you care to donate to help off set the costs, that would be killer, if not, no worries. Any money collected beyond the cost of goods to do this will be donated to the Honeoye food pantry to help them during the holidays. Dinners will be packed in microwave safe containers so they can be enjoyed right away or reheated on turkey day. Get 1 get 10, bring them to someone who will appreciate it. Just trying to spread some love. Let us know what we can do for who! Please let someone you think will appreciate this know. Pickup will start at 4 the Wednesday before Thanksgiving! If Venmo is easy that is amazing our Venmo is mill creek cafe @adam-frick-7 I think…”.
Good to see another Finger Lakes business step up to the plate and support their local community! For more info: https://www.facebook.com/MillCreekCafeNY/

New Positions Tied to Investment and Growth
FIFCO USA paved the way for the Genesee Brewery’s stabilization and future with its $50 million investment to modernize the brewery in 2018. This update created a state-of-the-art facility within the historic brewery, that allowed the Genesee brewing team to make their classic and delicious beer to last fresher longer. Since 2018, the brewery has seen several other significant investments. The Genesee Brewery received a new sleek can line, draft center and other small improvements to help sustain and create a platform to grow the business. In addition, FIFCO USA also focused the commercial business to a few strategic priorities to help the company build momentum. That work has helped to accelerate the growth of Seagram’s Escapes, as well as Genesee Specialty brands.
“In 2018, we sought the opportunity to invest in the brewery and the business long-term. We took some natural attrition when we modernized the brewery and we continued to invest in our best opportunities,” said Popp. “Our strategy is slowly working and we’re making progress. We are looking to hire positions to meet the demand in the marketplace.”
