Sen. Ortt and Assemblyman Morinello recognize Voz Cycle City as Small Business of the Month
Over the weekend, New York State Senate Republican Leader Rob Ortt and Assemblyman Angelo Morinello recognized Voz Cycle City as the “Small Business of the Month” for December.
In 2005, Carol and Terry Vosburgh opened their independent motorcycle repair shop, Voz Cycle City, in the Town of Wheatfield. The Vosburghs, who registered Voz Cycle City as a New York state inspection facility, chose to operate an independent shop to allow for the repair and customization of all makes and models of motorcycles.
A press release noted, “Voz Cycle City is more than just a repair shop. Voz Cycle City is a community-oriented business that sponsors fun and exciting community events and hosts several fundraisers to help local veterans and their families. During the spring and summer, the business sponsors monthly events with live bands, food and 50/50 drawings, with proceeds going to WNY Heroes. For the past 12 years, the Vosburghs have also held an annual Christmas drive with raffles and donation bins at local businesses to collect toys, small appliances, and clothing for veterans in need.”
The drive celebration, where winners are selected, is held at the annual Christmas party at the local American Legion on Ward Road in Wheatfield, where Santa Claus is present to meet and take photos with local children.
Ortt’s camp stated, “Through these efforts, Voz Cycle City truly helps make a difference in the lives of local veterans.”
He added, “We are so fortunate to have such a caring and community-focused family such as the Vosburghs and their business, Voz Cycle City, in our area. Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy for reasons exactly like this. Not only do they provide necessary services to residents, but these businesses also have an inherent desire to look after the communities they operate within. That is why it is so important that we as elected leaders celebrate small businesses such as Voz Cycle City that go the extra mile and give back to those in need.”
Morinello said, “I would like to thank Voz Cycle City for believing in our community and investing in our community. Owning and operating a small business today is no easy task. With the hard work and dedication of Carol and Terry Vosburgh, they have been able to provide motorcycles repair services and products to the community since 2005. I would also like to thank them for their countless donations to veterans associations and children in need groups. We are very fortunate to have a small business such as Voz Cycle City in our district. Congratulations and keep up the great work.”
