BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– Perks Cafe on Elmwood is closing for good.

Owner Bob Newman blames financial losses due to the pandemic and what he’s calling “negativity in the community and prevalent anti-business attitude.”

News 4 reported former Perks employees were trying to unionize.

They accused Newman of illegal union-busting tactics and filed a complaint with the national labor relations board.

Perks’ parent company eventually reached a settlement and agreed to obey the law.
