The Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino is boosting business for some local companies.

The $130 million casino recently held its grand opening. The casino features several local businesses like E.M. Chrusciki Bakery.

It got its start at The Broadway Market and now has a second location in Lancaster. Ania Gurnari, with E.M. Chrusciki, says Seneca Gaming first contacted her about supplying baked goods for the Seneca Niagara Casino last year.

"We hit the jackpot and the great thing is we were discovered," she said. "They came to us. I never went out asking. They called and said they had a casino opening and I said come in and talk and it just went from there."

Gurnari says the partnership led to the casino in Salamanca and now E.M. Chrusciki is supplying sweet treats to the Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo as well.

She says about a dozen items are featured at the casino's cafe each day ranging from cupcakes and brownies to pastry hearts and breads.
