Williamsville, NY (WKBW-Release)

Iskalo Development Corp. today confirmed that the pending sale of
the property located at 5000-5010 Main Street in Snyder, NY, will not affect business operations at the Lord Amherst Hotel or Sonoma Grille restaurant. Iskalo will operate the Lord Amherst Hotel upon the completion of the acquisition. The Sonoma Grille, operating under a long term lease since 2003, will continue to be operated by
Michael R. Militello with no interruption in service.
“Iskalo’s interest in acquiring the 5000-5010 Main Street property is a harbinger of good things to come for the Lord Amherst Hotel and the Sonoma Grille,” Michael R. Militello, owner
of the Sonoma Grille, said. “Iskalo’s reputation for upgrading properties, particularly along the Main Street corridor in Amherst, is well established. We’re excited about the prospect of their
2-2-2 acquiring the property and look forward to a building a long lasting relationship with Iskalo as they work to make positive improvements to the property.” “The Lord Amherst has been a fixture at the gateway to the Town of Amherst since the construction of the I-290 Expressway,” Paul Bohdan Iskalo, Founder and CEO, Iskalo
Development, said. “We view the property as strategically important to the Main Street corridor stretching from Snyder through the Village of Williamsville and are pleased to have the opportunity to add it to our growing Main Street portfolio of fine properties.”
