Rochester is home too many great companies, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, & Hickey Freeman to name a few. But one company dominants all here and that is Kodak. George Eastman & Henry Strong founded Kodak in 1888 and became prominent in peoples lives with the tagline “Kodak Moment”. What used to be Kodak Park, full of production buildings and even an on-site theater, now remains a little less than half of the buildings and empty lots. Growing up and still today, you can go watch them implode buildings that are within the Kodak Park and other buildings scattered throughout Rochester’s suburbs. Though Kodak is no longer a major force in the photography field, they are still prominent in Rochester culture.
I love you. I love you. I love you. This is a very over hyped post about a company founded in Rochester that now has branches throughout the East Coast. They allow me to successfully fulfill all my vegetarian needs, offer long endless food options, and have some of the most delicious baked goods a grocery store can have. As of recently, they’ve brought Bellingham to Rochester by offering Kombucha Town as part of the Kombucha collection. I love Wegmans. Catch it in The Office episodes you are probably binge watching again!
