SERVPRO of Wyomissing Sets Up Shop at Hops for Hooves Fundraiser

5/6/2019 (Permalink)

This weekend SERVPRO of Wyomissing put away the chemicals and moisture meters to support the local community! We had the incredible opportunity to be a vendor at the annual Hops for Hooves festival.

Hops for Hooves is a fundraising event for Grey Muzzle Manor Sanctuary, Inc. Grey Muzzle Manor is a nonprofit initiative geared towards providing a safe and healthy environment for senior animals. They provide adoption services, hospice care and community outreach programs, like Hops for Hooves, to assist older pets in avoiding the shelter system. Grey Muzzle Manor also provides animal assisted therapy so humans and furry friends can receive the love they deserve! Their initiative promotes a wholesome environment, self-love, peace and positivity through animal assisted therapy, art therapy, gardening and other mental health treatments.

We set up a tent this Saturday at the Liberty Fire Company to support this incredible cause. Our team had a bunch of SERVPRO merchandise and we provided a great raffle prize for one lucky winner to snag! SERVPRO of Wyomissing spent the day talking with other vendors and our amazing Wyomissing community, and of course petting all of our furry friends too!

Wounded Warrior 5K run/walk

12/8/2017 (Permalink)

This Sunday, December 10, 2017. SERVPRO Wyomissing will be walking in support of Eric's angels. Come join us!

This walk/run for Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.

Sept. 11 also served as a stimulus for Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and New Dawn. Operation Iraqi Freedom refers to military operations in Iraq that began March 19, 2003 and officially ended August 31, 2010. Operation Enduring Freedom refers to combat operations in Afghanistan and other regions in support of the Global War on Terror. Operation New Dawn refers to the conclusion of operations in Iraq beginning September 1, 2010 and ending December 15, 2011.

For WWP, there is a distinct difference between members and alumni; the term alumni indicates a mutual shared experience and denotes your place in an organization was earned. There are no dues here - those were paid by wearing the uniform and on the battlefield.

SERVPRO has new neighbors

12/8/2017 (Permalink)

CUMRU TOWNSHIP, PA

A new brewery is HERE in Cumru Township.

Josh Taylor, Lucan Schmidt and Joseph Mastruzzo, all 20-something graduates of Conrad Weiser High School, are opening Schaylor Brewing Co. at 2390 Lancaster Pike, Cumru Township.The building was once a Daewoo dealership and most recently served as a mixed martial arts gym. SERVPRO of Wyomissing is their new neighbor and glad to asssist in anyway to make another small business successful. 

Their  business plan

The business owners started planning the brewery about a year ago. They have acquired all the permits they need from the township, and recently began construction inside the building. But they await their federal brewing permit.

"We put the idea together and started a business plan about a year ago, and started planning it all out, putting numbers together, and figured out it was feasible to do," said Schmidt, 29. "We then started the ball in motion looking for a place, and now we're doing construction."Taylor, who has worked at Chatty Monks Brewing Co. in West Reading and Reading Carbonics, will be in charge of brewing operations. Schmidt and Mastruzzo will focus on the business side.The brewery has an open layout with a U-shaped bar and additional table seating. The brewing equipment will be located in a front corner, and will be visible to the seating area as well as the outside through large windows."When we were searching for buildings, we came across this one, and we were very excited about it because it was an old car dealership," Taylor said. "We have the big lot so we can expand outside, and we have the wraparound windows so we can display our brewing equipment to people driving by."There will be a kitchen. Schaylor will offer a small food menu, which includes items such as sandwiches and flatbread pizzas.The brewery will be the latest in a line of new businesses to come to the Lancaster Pike corridor in Cumru Township. In recent years, Reading Public Auto Auction, Walgreens, AutoZone, Dollar General and Big Time Thrift Store have all opened nearby.

Getting funky

Schaylor will have eight taps to start, but that will likely expand. Taylor, Schmidt and Mastruzzo are all big fans of India pale ales, so many of the beers will be hoppy, but there will be other styles as well.

"We're going to brew some funky IPAs," Taylor said. "That's what we seek out. But we'll have decent variety, like stouts, Belgians and the whole works, but we'll specialize in IPAs. We're 'hop heads,' so we're going to jam hops anywhere we can in our beers."Schaylor's slogan is "brew outside the lines," so many of the beers will have a twist on them, Schmidt said."It's very nontraditional," he said. "A lot of his best IPAs look like orange juice when you put them in a glass. They're more smooth and less bitter."Schaylor will have several year-round beers, but it will brew many one-time batches, Schmidt said. With only eight taps, that means there will likely be times when certain year-round beers will not be available, he said."One of the biggest things we like to do is constantly brew different kinds of beer," he said. "With all our recipes, there might be a time when a certain flagship won't be on tap."Schaylor will be the seventh brewery in Berks County, joining Chatty Monks, Golden Avalanche Brewing Co. in Kutztown, Hidden River Brewing Co. in Union Township, Oakbrook Brewing Co. in Reading, Saucony Creek Brewing Co. in Maxatawny Township and The Other Farm Brewing Co. in Boyertown.
