Houseknechts Reacquire Vending Company
A Batavia vending business sold to a Massachusetts company almost six years ago is reacquired by the Houseknechts.
John and Tom sold Loose Ends in 2008 after the family sold its Pepsi bottling company. They’ve re-entered the vending business and are re-branding the company to Crickler Vending.
The company has distribution centers in Rochester, Buffalo and Elmira. They told our news partner, The Batavian, that they have no plans to operate a distribution center in Genesee County at this time, as they see those three cities as their primary market areas.

Cuomo Loses Former Backer
Governor Andrew Cuomo loses the support of a party that backed him four years ago.
Instead of endorsing the democratic candidate, the Working Families Party is set to nominate a Fordham University Political Science professor as its candidate for New York Governor.
Party leaders admit that Zephyr Teachout has little chance of beating Cuomo, but say that she would cut his margin of victory and damage his reputation among progressives.
Cuomo has angered many liberals with his tax policies.
