Hometown Rochester

Hometown Rochester

July 27, 2018

Launching an online company is much different than setting up a table at the local farmers market.  Online you are neglected that chance to look somebody in the face and see if they are getting the message. What really stings is when your neighbor, friend, or co-worker went to the farmers market and bought their zucchini there. They had no idea that they lived next to the best damn zucchini supplier around. Well we have some pretty damn good zucchini and we want to make sure Rochester knows.

This summer we have been focusing on being a better neighbor Rochester. While we ship around the globe, we are the silicone ring brand Rochester deserves 

Why Rochester?

This is our hometown. Tom grew up in Irondequoit, watching mom head off to the Wegmans video department while dad was pulling wire for Rochester Gas and Electric. You could find young Tom pulling wire on the weekends with dad  moonlighting whenever he could to “put money in the bank”. Steve could be found in the auto shops of East Rochester while his father worked at Kodak as a mechanic during the week while mom worked for the local library.

Rochester's Important Life Lessons

  • You ordered a “Porker” (white hot dog) and you went to Vic and Irv’s or Don and Bobs.
  • Garbage plates consumed before 2AM were for weaklings.
  • Oxfords always had a drink ready.
  • Never swim in Irondequoit Bay
  • You had to ride the Jack Rabbit if you went to Seabreeze
  • Rochestarians knew how to work through anything.

We are Rochester. Born here, returned to here, and raising families here. If we haven't met you yet, we need to fix that.

We are looking for you Rochester

We are working hard to get out in front of as many people as we can, so you know we are Rochester’s silicone ring company of choice.  

We are at your baseball games, working with the Rochester Red Wings.  We have been with the Rochester Knighthawks for their military appreciation night.  We helped support a GoRuck Rochester working with Lost Borough Brewing to support the Warrior Salute program.

You can already get our rings at these great places in Rochester.

What can you do?

    • Tackle anybody wearing a silicone ring that is not RECON Rings until they know who we are.
    • Tell us where else we need to be.
    • Let your company know you are safer at work because of the ring.
    • Go to a Red Wings Game, eat a garbage plate and drink a Genny. 
    • Go ride the Jack Rabbit. Seriously, it's fourth oldest operating roller coaster in the world
