Congratulations to Empire Storage & Gated Parking, LLC for being selected as Penfield Business Association’s Business of the Month for October 2015.
The Meli family began the business as a trucking and construction company in 1941. Today the business focuses on mini self-storage unit rentals, trailer and van box storage, and contractor’s garage and shop space rentals. There is also outdoor storage space for long-term parking of vehicles including boats, RVs, and campers, as well as large parking spaces for contractor vehicles and equipment. Customers can feel their belongings are secure protected within a gated property that allows 24-hour access with a private code.
Four generations of the Meli family have been involved in the business for the past 74 years. Currently Nick and Marge Meli (second generation) are the owners of the business and Linda Beikirch (third generation) and Stephen Beikirch (fourth generation) are property managers. The business currently has ten employees.
The Meli’s are actively involved in several community organizations including, the Elks, Rochester Dance Club, Brighton Chamber of Commerce, The British American Club, Italian American Women’s Club, School of the Holy Childhood, Aquinas, Monroe Community College and St. John Fisher College. Nick Meli was one of the original members of the Penfield Business Association when it was founded in 1992.
The Meli’s are proud of building a family-owned business that has remained in the area for so many years and look forward to helping members of the community with their storage and parking needs in the years to come.
Congratulations Empire Storage & Gated Parking!
