May 2022 Ruminations & Ronnifications

April showers bring May flowers. So how is this related to Ben’s? Well, we will be finished in May with our renovation of our Greenvale flagship location … so as the flowers bloom the newly renovated Ben’s will as well.

It is a true labor of love as we emerge from the darkness of the last two years. We plan on celebrating our 40th year of Ben’s Greenvale and our 50th in business  in October with a grand celebration. And to think that it all began with a formerly bankrupt location (twice) in Baldwin in 1972!

Fifty years in business attained at the age of seventy-four when I used to think anyone fifty years of age was old. I guess we keep moving the goal posts. Now, let’s sit back and bask in the accomplishment and celebrate the rebirth of our flowers and the Ben’s Greenvale rehabilitation, just in time for Mother’s Day. And let’s give a shout out to our patrons, vendors, employees and mothers. Without them, all this couldn’t have been accomplished …so again, thank you all.

See ya at the Deli,
