The U.S. Small Business Administration and the New York Business Development Corporation hosted the 13th annual luncheon to recognize the achievements of local small businesses.

Operation Oswego County nominated Oswego Sub Shop for the award.

The Oswego Sub Shop, located in the City of Oswego, has been in operation since 1969.

Currently owned and operated by third generation owner William Greene, Jr., the sub shop has increased the number of menu items and sales each year.

One of their popular subs is named for SUNY Oswego graduate, Al Roker of NBC’s Today Show.

With an eye to improving efficiency and the quality of bread products, Greene recently started the Oswego Baking and Catering Company. Sales continue to rise with the expansion.

“We had a lot of help to get here today. Most of all, Dave Daino from Operation Oswego County, Mike Quenville from Pathfinder Bank, and Larry Perras from the Oswego SBDC. I’d also like to thank my father for growing the business into a legendary icon through a recipe of passion, service and quality. Through the expansion, we’ve doubled the size of the building and with the help of SBA, it’s been a great transition and improvement,” said William Greene, Jr. as he accepted the Excellence Award in front of 260 luncheon attendees.

Small businesses are selected for the Excellence Awards based on their company’s longevity, innovation, sales growth, increased employment, ability to overcome adversity or community contributions.

Motorsports Fabrication Class Wins Competition

Submitted Article

MEXICO, NY – The students in Dave Marsden’s Motorsports Fabrication program at Oswego County BOCES recently won an award for the “Most Creative Chopper” at the second annual Mini-Chopper Biker Build-Off held at Monroe Community College in Rochester.

As a class project, the students built a diesel-powered trike.

Several students began building the vehicle just after Christmas break in preparation for the May 1 competition.

Several ideas were discussed and the plans were made to build a tricycle that would be powered by a diesel engine prepared by Dave Perkins’ Auto Engine class at OCB and fueled by bio-diesel produced by Jim Loomis’ Auto Services class at OCB.

The fabrication students made a plan for the vehicle, designed and built component parts along with fabricating and welding the chassis.

The students traveled to MCC for the competition to compete against bikes built by several other BOCES from across New York State.

After judging was complete, the OCB bike was awarded first place in the competition for the second year in a row.

Other members of the fabrication class built an “old-school” chopper to take to the competition.

That bike earned an honorable mention.

Other class members built a robot to enter in the Sumobot competition held on the same day at MCC.

Sumobot is a robot war-type of competition where the objective is to push the opponent off a table that is six feet in diameter.

The students made it to the second round of competition before being eliminated.

This was this first time the Motorsports Fabrication class has competed in the Sumobot competition.

For more information on the Motorsports Fabrication program, call 963-4313.
