Amazon Fulfillment Center Prompts Changes in Schodack
The quaint and rural town of Schodack in Rensselaer County became the home of a “mammoth” Amazon distribution facility in September 2020. Since then, the community has seen a variety of impacts. For small business owner Jason Grant, making an effort to build a relationship with the new facility has proven to be worthwhile for him and his business. Jason, owner of The Crisp Cannoli Bakery & Cafe in East Greenbush, immediately reached out to “everybody and anybody” after ground was broken on the new facility and dropped off boxes of free pastries and breakfast sandwiches for employees. As a result, Jason has successfully established a strong relationship with the facility’s employees and administrative staff. Jason has consistently catered large orders from administrators and sees facility employees in his bakery on a regular basis.
