Weber's Mustard is looking to spice things up with an expansion in Upstate New York. A report in this week's Business First shows how the Buffalo company is targeting Rochester and Syracuse as growth markets. Just like chicken wings and beef on weck, Weber's horseradish mustard is a Buffalo favorite. Officials say they aren't trying to be a national brand, but they can be a strong, regional one. Weber's plans to invest up to $40,000 on its marketing plan.
This summer, Weber's will also be the official mustard at Darien Lake Theme Park.
A report in this week's Business First shows how same-sex married couples are facing obstacles when it comes to filing income taxes. In many cases, couples must prepare four income tax returns - one for the state, two for the federal government and a "dummy" federal return with more information. That's because same sex marriage isn't recognized at the federal level. That will impact the amount of the return. It also costs more to file through a tax preparer since there are so many forms and extra paperwork to fill out.
