Spiedie Move: Lupo’s Starts Production at New West Endicott Plant
A Broome County company that provides spiedie meat, sausage and other items to retailers has started operating in its new facility in the Town of Union.
Sam A. Lupo & Sons quickly moved production from a site on Route 17C in Glendale to the former Kalurah Shrine Center building on Dickson Street in West Endicott.
Company president Sam Lupo Jr. said operations at the old site ended at 5 p.m. last Thursday.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Lupo said the move went according to plan. He said "it was amazing."
Lupo said a USDA inspector gave approval for a start-up at the new site around 7:45 a.m. Monday.
The West Endicott facility has about 20,000 square feet of space. It has more than double the space of the old site.
Lupo said 44 people now are working at the new complex. He said there is plenty of space available for future growth.
