Within our first year of business, we had bought our first service van and hired our first employee, Guy Slack. We also outgrew the family garage and moved the family and business to a home with five acres and a barn on Browncroft Boulevard in Penfield. Our business flourished at this location from 1979 to 1990 by building a reputation for quality, reliable service at a fair price.
Expanding Our Business & Expertise
After over a decade of operating from our Browncroft location, the business moved to its current location at 11 Comfort Street in the City of Rochester. This same year, Richard and Ann started a second company, Cassidy Mechanical Corporation, to diversify our company and create more opportunity for larger commercial and industrial projects.
In 1995, the Cassidys accepted an offer to sell Cassidy Plumbing & Heating to Chemed Corporation, the parent company of Roto-Rooter. The following year, they sold their interest in Cassidy Mechanical Corporation to their children, Stephen and Diane, plus long-time employees Guy Slack, Darren Englert, and Brian Blackburn. At this time, the business name changed to Kennedy Mechanical, Inc.
