The Pasta Peddler, Blackbird Sweets to Occupy Larger Hertel Avenue Location

 

The Pasta Peddler and Blackbird Sweets, two family owned businesses that operate side-by-side, will move to a larger location at 1547 Hertel Ave., Buffalo, in early August. The businesses currently operate in the Horsefeathers Building at 346 Connecticut St. 

“Our businesses are growing, and as a result we have outgrown our current 650-square-foot operation,” said Eric Amodeo, co-owner of The Pasta Peddler. “Our new location will offer approximately 3,000 square feet of retail and production space. We also hope to add lunch and dinner service and an outdoor patio in the future.”
