Press Release

Monday, March 18, 2019 - 2:18pm
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that Great Performances - the largest woman-owned catering and food service company in New York City - will relocate from Manhattan to the South Bronx. As part of the relocation, Great Performances will create 181 new jobs and retain 451 jobs. The company will also invest $4.4 million in outfitting an over 40,000 square foot space to accommodate new kitchens, warehouse space, purchasing department, design studio, training space, support offices and The Sylvia Center, a non-profit dedicated to teaching nutrition and cooking to children and their families in high potential neighborhoods. "New York couldn't be prouder of our efforts to ensure women-owned businesses - especially creative, sustainable and forward-thinking ones like Great Performances - have the opportunity to grow and thrive in this state," Governor Cuomo said. "With its new headquarters, Great Performances will be able to expand operations, hire more staff and share its success with new neighbors in the South Bronx and beyond. That's a recipe for success." "In New York, we are committed to ensuring the growth of successful woman-owned businesses like Great Performances," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "The catering company's relocation will create more than 180 new jobs and retain hundreds more in their new location in the South Bronx. This investment continues to strengthen the economy, attracting more businesses and creating new opportunities in the area." Read the full press release here.

Press Release

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that AML RightSource, a leading firm in anti-money laundering, Bank Secrecy Act and financial crimes compliance has officially opened a new office in Buffalo. The 11,000 square foot space in the Larkin Center of Commerce will be the company's fourth office, with plans to hire up to 100 service employees to support the addition of new clients. "The City of Buffalo is on the move and Western New York is welcoming more new businesses than ever, bringing good paying jobs and exponential growth to the area," Governor Cuomo said. "Through strategic partnerships with companies like AML RightSource, New York will continue to attract businesses from near and far to develop and expand across the state." "Western New York's high-quality workforce and growing reputation as a hotspot for tech innovation is the perfect recipe for AML RightSource to expand into the City of Buffalo," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, who made today's announcement. "This significant investment and creation of 100 new jobs will continue to grow the regional economy. For far too long this area witnessed businesses close, young people leave, and jobs disappear. Today, we have seen a transformation that continues to bring new companies and more jobs to the area." Read the full press release here.
