Who's the CEO of Webber's mustered what named do you think of both of mustard rather than Webber -- -- -- people think about as Webber's roster especially in the summertime -- Steve are you don't buy the Euro pro at this you know we've had -- before. But but so tell us what's going on a -- -- Certificate is finally did a nice. Advertising campaign last year with in Rochester buffalo Syracuse. And all of a sudden of course it's started at the beginning of monster season when Marty. Buried with work we got major expansion through wegmans and Wal-Mart and all of a sudden my mistakes and squeeze monster Wal-Mart takes from pellets. And within the first three weeks of the season primary fight for respect -- So that's great. We are were had about 12% for the first quarter which I think is phenomenal but. In the food industry and are now frustrated over whoever's. The symbolism. He just never know in the food industry if what monsters into big in sales and what isn't and it is is a summer usually the biggest month for countenance RS seasoned stars roughly six weeks before Easter. And it seems to me like August 15 it stops and that you go through labor David -- from the start of mustard -- refrigerator and it. I'm hoping with what's going on right now in our Syracuse sales that we've been pumped into Syracuse -- to Syracuse events -- -- things -- I'm hoping that we can extend this season in the middle of September. And now all of a sudden Pepperidge Union College or start to grow our name is finally getting out there -- -- -- -- -- -- 256000. Dollars a month the temperature in your house. Animal and as we carry -- where October November December -- -- seasons are relishing this season -- his -- Muster seasons though continues because the around but -- to the coverage -- out products are really gonna start. Giving us here around pace that we can you handle. Just come a little closer to the -- microphone here. So it's that we can on here yeah I'll hear you great. So tell me how old is it to be in a monster business and do people caught up to you. I mean you know -- is kind of a big game of awful so he's kind of cool having. -- we're the only Muster company. Believes some emotion came from the house in Rochester small one of reboot we're the only. Manufacturing mustard facility and non near state of of our size. And you're right people come up to us and we're proud to Wear jackets at the supermarket shares. A couple years ago was on the golf course for a fund raiser and down. The younger guy and it's great when younger people and to I really turn around our products. Maybe twenty mid twenties look you know between you marks of yours and the Barney goes what do you for living say Iran -- monster he looks in his mouth his floor because. He that you and Kelly of life and like the -- Our company he said you know we just. People people love our company I mean they just can't -- everybody has the story about -- so. They know what outside of buffalo. Or Armenia -- state because they -- your growing in places like Syracuse and Rochester. What about out of state. We've got we've got about twenty. Independent accounts scattered around the country. In the last couple months had Branson numbers between all the city Mays and buffalo food stack common Webber's -- dot com and other sites that were we have a companies Boris is enormous on. I ran a calculation and I figure there's 60000 dollars whoever's going how mail order. Or more a year through all these sites so why it's been quoted in newspapers and I firmly believe that -- is Buffalo's number one export. -- hit camp that's very cute do you think that. Do you think that a lot of people will leave buffalo for a little while it may be snow birds or people work out for -- they order a lot of -- on line. Because it just you know Chris -- sponsor it's kind of addictive backs three have to have all buffalo kind of things right. On the back all the gift all the parts companies support asides that made him buffalo boxes -- -- -- premieres basket but. We've tracked orders for seventeen years afterwards and well pretty much for the seventeen years still to this day. 40% are orders that are coming in mail order we only ship cases or -- cases. Our first time mustard. Our first time buyers so all I can attribute that is is our core consumer transplants have an interest -- -- to their new friends neighbors. And the sky's the limit and it's it's just it's just a wonderful field what is different about -- and competition. Classic -- You go to the supermarket story and find. Flavored monsters aren't browns are -- year -- and I really firmly believe 92 years this company's survived because we are one of the few classic deal -- posters. And there's a differences taste difference to us a taste difference I think. People think at least not some most people think of our -- mustard -- in -- Their stadium mustard in Cleveland Ohio. Should be voted number the stadium mustard and Cleveland Ohio which is a great and chunky but that's the number one -- of Cleveland. And it is just I think he's just. -- best thing about buffalo -- supports a local homegrown companies they've always done it and I think we're gonna survive forever at least in this region just because we are homegrown in -- We're gonna bring in -- our chairman of retreat western new York and also marketing here -- and our commandant Paul works closely now with few Steve. Including with a single that if you guys just everything's better with Webber's on it. Right and I think you know you're talking to move out of the fact that I think -- averages is growing because people like more spice to what they they expect from. Their foods sold with Webber's horseradish mustard even analysts like ninety some years old. It's now -- because you know people have have gotten used to -- slows and all these other spicy foods. And you just want more than just the of the bland old mustard that you might have had -- ago from -- with that little. Jar with the flag and at that I'm not gonna say when it is put you can we all know what it is. It's just very bland you get a -- Webber's and you really it it's a better Muster an action that took us to the jingle that's why we came up with. Webber's better if there's a little bit about almost a -- to and put it it it really is it's. It's so more of -- gourmet type of product even though it's priced. Every day price. And -- There are saying about the spies in the heat that's true everybody's wanting powder products of the problem is how hard we want and those peppers from a few years ago they're gone now. But the -- the situation in right now news we've we will go on national talk on the moment but I'm. We're making and rotating making and shipping -- parkinson's please I've finally got a two or three regardless rotation. Now I get the calls from people. Can we have the other -- -- it's too hot. So my assistant general -- -- -- phonies like I don't wanna say this because most companies want to use more the product it's just too high if you use less -- -- hot -- After it is just don't uses it just don't look -- -- or you just a little goes a long way type of thing -- what -- items were running. Higher quality product right now brushed. Than we ever -- and it's only natural let's talk about that all match. In 1991. -- I'm sorry in 2001. New York State came to me and sent you have to put preserves your Muster. One of our secret ingredients that only three people in the world and yes that's something that they wanted to sports -- -- times when conservatives. I fought like crazy. And they and they want it requires once they tell us we have to we do. So I picture collapsing where testing done there about six months ago. Petitioned the state ends three months we were certified on natural. So we can not taken all the preservatives all the garbage out of -- gonna take a couple years to -- novel labels right squeezes changed attorneys will be changed another month and the other ones will slowly. -- -- -- Whatever source fresh roster how garlic mustard you know if you -- our own natural products. It discernible -- the effect that you don't have sodium -- -- it and it. It will will keep you stable tell all without hitters it more just the feeling that it's natural. The one ingredient -- changed it to to make this work and I went went on natural ingredient as one of our -- super. Found the recipe. Actually. Has changed the flavor chest and extra hair. Give it a little more kick in the little more flavor Kraft which I think while people are gonna gonna be harder pressure on future catch aren't you but. I'm really proud because more and more stores more more supermarkets accounts are wanting all natural. And because New York State made this requirement we've been stuck for last twelve. Is that because you've defended its so well right. Now you now you got that. Right monkey off your back with a statement so I'm wanna make sure everybody's -- say that we are all natural let me ask if this -- war for -- here with Steve Desmond CEO Webber's -- buffalo tradition. Let's talk about the products what are people fine right now. It's summer finally kicked in last few weeks. We've been a little to slow this year on the relishes that optical he relishes my personal favorite product -- goes from -- Charlie. But finally we're getting sales start to build on the -- Texas passed the faculty the -- relished the relish products which are seasonal but the more of your warm weather grilling her products. The Webber's mustard. It's sold more Webber's mustard in the last two months I've been canceled in years. And it's -- Webber's horseradish must ensure attribution that your reflection front -- when anybody says and when a case of mustard -- -- and we -- issues at Webber's horseradish. So that's the yellow mustard rest of us about it. The one that I'm looking at here around on your website at that red label red cap on it and her -- a squeeze bottle it's got the -- -- always a red cap you look for with. With your products for Webber's race. Right we have a mile mustard -- mild but we saw about a hundred cases that he hear some of the depends to take its good mustered just founders' original recipe. But. -- source fresh mustered just 38000 cases a year that's our number one for a. Good for. What about there's a new flavor coming on actually a throwback to old flavor can we talk about the and kicking it around and I got a potential supplier -- we're gonna -- local and to deal local suppliers but. The honey mustard -- discontinued about three years ago. I'm in the process of really seriously at bringing it back and got the labels and got the products and it's a great product it is more -- -- more of a marinated our dressing for salads chicken nuggets chicken fingers and what is gone sweet -- is always known been known for spicy. The party horseradish mustard is a sweet with -- Patrick and searched. Snipes that's a great idea I think. I actually never try to put it I just if that you know feeling that it's -- with that type displace unit. -- like that taste to Webber's -- you one little sweet to it which will be great for periods food slickers and pretzels perhaps dipped. A great -- that it would be used for. As well as in recipes and you know that the marinades and that'll be great. So it as.

Welcome back to buffalo means business and is ready at 930 W the yen mining is putting -- here with Tom Lauren CEO of -- mobility. In Clarence on a personal note. I have a stepson that his disabled stand we have gotten many products on my wife and my family that have helped my stepson. Thanks to a tolerance and mean mobility Celtics are and -- -- and I'm good I'm good and we got a lot to talk about first of all. You know everybody knows me -- mobility they've heard of the name what. So that you do. The sum it up we take vehicles and make them accessible. And to the general audience out that he might think -- what is that it. For anybody out there that he has some type of -- An issue where they kick it in -- out of vehicles are in a wheelchair -- have a broken laying. Amputated limb. And then having a difficult time using the vehicle. This we come and play and we work with cars vans pickup trucks and with an assessor ranks pretty much any vehicle to fit your specific need. And in case of your stepson he's a wheelchair so we could provide -- vehicle that -- touch a button door opens up ramp comes out and bring your son -- Secure improperly. In in in his wheelchair none of Buchanan when you go. What about what about the elderly people people who just they can't kid and they can't get out they find it hard to walk how how I want. How does that make any difference. Zero just we we on. We we think about our elderly and what they're driving and typically they're gonna go -- there knew that Lincoln Cadillac Lexus. And then they figure out what am I gonna do because sometimes I'm bringing a schoolgirl on the walker along and -- to put. And I think most people still don't know how. That is accessible vehicles actually how stylish he really are so it's now like a stigma like -- -- -- if I can accessible vehicle what does it look like. We can take a brand new Toyota -- loaded that -- a lot of -- interior of the dvd players and dress -- up but the nice thing is if you are one of those individuals it occasionally take -- -- But right now back and it's it's 123 to subordinates and Aaron waigel and these things you do now to up to these vehicles. I mean there's -- -- -- some of the new technologies that are out there with me mobility. Well that build one the latest things out their offer for longest time we were. Really modifying many -- because again the size was appropriate their front wheel drive force can be cut lowered. So there was a lot we can do with it recently we've got products now we can take a brand new Chevy pickup truck. And -- been cut an altar and four wheel drive pickup and the whole site. Vehicle will be either driver -- you're depending on where you need to be positioned. We'll slide open the big drawer opens up floor lowers the ground. You vacuum wheelchair rating and raise you up and you're either a where they they don't have the independence anymore like they used to but it's hard to believe we. Talk to people and regular basis that will tell us they haven't done more -- haven't gone out independently. For 1015 years. And once they see these products that -- I had no idea it was that simple to be able to just do something like this and regained independence. You know Thomas's fourth of July weekend. And there's a subject I know that's near and dear to your -- that -- talking about veterans and some of the programs -- mean mobility fights for war veterans. You like you like you say. You know they served us I mean mobility is proud to serve. The veterans tell us. What veteran should know right now for me company because its interest in most. Veterans are not even aware that if you've had a service related injury. All the mobility modifications were talking about right now will be covered -- percent. And for the first time using the program through the VA. Federal government program they will give you up to 191000 dollars towards the purchase of the chance. So it's it's amazing how little money they have to spend to get a brand new vehicle. Totally equipped. For the transport needs do they know -- -- veterans know that they can they -- that they can get this money that they can get these grants. And you know I would like to say. You know if he really did research it out there but it's sometimes hard to find. It's not something that the VA hospital is out there putting on billboards saying hey you know you need to come get it so. If he stopped into our Herschel woman on main street across from Cruz high school. We've got all kinds of the forms and programs that we can discuss with them to see if we are eligible and who they need to talk to. Locally we do a lot of work with the buffalo VA has -- to keep -- VA hospital. So basically somebody would maybe either stop in to the main street Clarence location if you are a veteran listening right now. And you're interested in for some reason you're not as mobile as he used to be and it was something related to -- your service. Stop but the main mobility go to the web saying thank you got a great area here for veterans on the website at -- mobility dot com. Or you can call them directly schedule an appointment right so what could call you directly in just. It's an appointment on 7596811. Again 7596811. Main mobility. In Clarence -- Tom Lorenz who's the CEO and your slogan for me immobility by the way you've been around thirty years. So not only if you provided me with two vehicles that that we could do without but I'm sure a lot of other people westerners -- getting old body. Everyone is like wooden -- people who all the sudden can't be independent. And then they found out about your products in your services. And the whole life has got to change quick story. Tony we had a gentleman come and one time with a brand new pickup truck. Yet she came into having access to put that we're putting running boards. In this new pickup truck and I haven't managed to rationalize is one beautiful struck -- Can shrug your shoulders and those that. He said you know -- lord who every option he says but I don't know what good is that he said I can't -- it. And he was walking around and our partners national prominence as we mean you can't because. I have a prosthetic Writely is and I can't drive -- vehicle. So I look at -- like I said Jim you gambling man he -- -- mean this is what if I told he could drag this pickup truck home today. We -- -- what's in these kidney patient. The challenger -- did do and we installed a simple device it's a -- for the solar panel -- your floor. It catches rates of food factory guest on and horseshoes over and which are left foot you operate your salary and still he's actually break. And it's as simple and quick release a new poll. -- comes right out so anybody else stagnant vehicle it's very protective effect respects. So he was -- -- that he -- I can't believe this you know and this product was 350 dollars at the time installing. And I won't even batteries are you serious form right here you have to be bought a brand Ford pickup truck. I said Phyllis form out scented -- to Ford and guess what they're gonna pay for -- for so cost him nothing. And for fifteen years didn't -- if you drove honorable -- that day out of their feed off it I mean an -- here's what happened. But 23 days later I get a phone call from his wife. And says I just gotta tell you something he is an entirely different man. We know we can. Go -- play cards with his buddies and I don't have to drive on there he doesn't feel embarrassed or anywhere we go he'd go with the guys and hang out now. And he is a 100% and and. With people with some disabilities or some handicaps or even -- what have you seen what. What kind of things does your company helped them overcome what kind of disabilities because you were telling me out there that people can even drive now with. Her head yes I mean they just they don't use any arms or legs or just drive -- there had I mean what. I don't think he's in Western New York is very behind the scenes with is is the on the agency's out of network with these. Particular individuals. Are not up on all the high tech products. So we kind of have a saying. -- provided you have the cognitive skills to drive that means you know you don't have dimension you're not and medications that cause seizures or blackouts are. Fallen asleep so you have all your cognitive skills I've yet to come across a client with any other form of disability. That what we haven't been able to put together a product that would allow them to drive. So there's also activation you sit behind it the that you're steering wheel and you you literally talk to a command center and say the Oakland park. Turn signal left air conditioning and medium or high and you're talking to these commands or we have. Looks just like a laptop. And just Richard knuckle you can just touch through the scroll through anything and -- and he would normally do where you're you're flipping switches and levers you just have us a touch sensitive -- that we control. So what we will offer agreement I was in May mobility a couple weeks ago. And -- for him showroom in their few holes you have fans that are all up dude all equipped. With things to help people with handicaps and disabilities so it is he had -- one part that's just like to show world. And what I also notice is that you have a team of professionals. Doing just about. Everything service vehicles you you build the vehicles you do everything you got a good staff there. One American and our best kept secrets is. We are manufacturing plant nobody by the nuclear arsenals but we we can build upwards to 250 to 300 full -- -- transit -- We are General Motors through Chevrolet we are their largest converter of mobility modified vehicles. Our clients are our agencies like people think -- clad all here -- senators. What's New York independent living and they use these vehicles to. Pick up and take their clients to work programs. To doctor visits and that. But again people can go directly to you is well 41 on one. If your interest into one of these veterans programs even if you're interested in just buying a vehicle if you like you actually have a great selection. Vehicles ready to goal right on the -- is like a regular car dealership. One thing we focus on as we don't want to appear like a typical car sales dealership. We really wanna show you that this product is gonna work. And I ate my motto here is if it doesn't work it does -- value so whether you were paying for out of your own money. Where the VA hospitals paying four or one of the many state programs for children or for individuals that are eighteen to 55 like access via our. Whether they're paying the whole villainous. If it doesn't work. It doesn't value we had a young man come in one time and end the institute could use our facilities just test point a company came in with this high tech. Wheelchair -- looked like a bulldozer which tracks added to the guy came in and pulls it off the trailer and bring an end and he's telling the young man racist. Look he's -- this -- you go over twelve a slog goes into fifteen inches of mud you know on. And I can just step back -- in this whole thing and he's gonna fire girls and it's going to be wheelchairs can -- -- Senegal. Can I ask you why your. Picking this particular wheelchair. She goes looking for free it's 35000 dollars ago. If your son takes -- a school. And he knew about -- looks like he's driving a bulldozer and the pace that he needs one -- little tiny sporty -- he's -- -- spin on the diamond. And they said their light as if he ever -- -- -- told C a crush on. I said don't look at it is how much it cost. Is it gonna suit your needs a civility and -- house had never thought it's. I Serena I'll tell you is too wide that many of the hence we have here so I don't know he would do with this. Now there's a purpose for. Have you had forty acres of land and you're never hunter Fisher you wanna go on your back property by all means that's a great product at all. But for everyday use would have been the wrong product. She listened to us she actually got to correct -- the wheelchair. We and it finger of accessible the end and she's happy as can be and so as the young Fella that using it. Folks do yourself a favor are right if you wanna gain mobility again if you wanna be able to travel to places to ought to be able to do things on your own. You have to see -- and there's a special section on your website just ask Tom if you have questions. Go to the website -- mobile leader Tom call Tom Lawrence directly. At 7596811. Or again main mobility which is right on main street. In clearance you can't miss it you'll be doing yourself a favor by at least. Checking to see for yourself what these what these vehicles. Can do for you and in terms of regaining your independence which again it's what you talked so much about. It mean mobility and veterans can't say enough first of all thank you.
