Bridgeview One Stop Celebrates 21 Years
BEMUS POINT — Bridgeview One Stop in Bemus Point is celebrating more than 20 years in business.
“As we take a breath to reflect on the growth and huge accomplishments we’ve made, we’d like to say thank you to our amazing community, friends, and neighbors who have faithfully supported us as well as incredibly loyal employees,” the business said. “We are so thankful for the ongoing relationships with all our devoted business partners as well.
“We came into this business with a lot of dreams and determination. We had a very, very young family of four. Our girls were 7 months old and 4 years old; they sacrificed as well. We had no idea what we were getting into but we believed in the American Dream.
“We have met so many icons in the business that helped pour their wisdom into us and by the grace of God we had the energy to show up each and every day and with the proverbial blood, sweat and tears. We took it one day at a time. There was sacrifice, and much of it. Many unspeakable thanks especially to our girls. As in so many businesses those who have gone before us aren’t here to celebrate with us, but are part of our story.
“Flash forward, we are here today with so many improvements and still growing. Day one we totally revamped our deli. It took years to successfully blend together #HometownHomemade food with selling fuel. Soon our #NotGasStationFood soared with an expanded menu beyond our subs, pizza and stromboli as we introduced ribs, mile-high reubens and our signature line of Boliburgers.
Also, store-wise we added a quality affordable line of clothing for visitors to our Lake Chautauqua region to be able to allow their entire family to gear up.
“Beyond that we’ve always had a laundromat and yes, the liquor store has always been there. It’s amusing how many people are still discovering all that we have. That’s great. Between that and the BV teen fan base it helps us keep our eyes on the future. Reid Petroleum added non-ethanol gas to the Mobil line last summer in our huge lot enabling us to serve the biggest boats on the lake. Every year we try to push ourselves on to the next thing. We still have a few tricks up our sleeve.”
