FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ROCHESTER, NY - Salvatore’s Old Fashioned Pizzeria, located at 4000 Lake Avenue in Rochester, New York, is under fire for its lack of wheelchair accessibility, 32 years after the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was established.


Despite the law's clear guidelines for businesses to ensure access to people with disabilities, Salvatore’s Old Fashioned Pizzeria has failed to make their establishment wheelchair accessible. This inaccessibility creates an exclusionary environment for individuals with disabilities who wish to enjoy the food and atmosphere of the restaurant.


The ADA, which was signed into law in 1990, requires businesses to provide accommodations for individuals with disabilities, including wheelchair accessibility. The law also prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability and requires reasonable modifications to policies, practices, and procedures to provide equal access to people with disabilities.


Yet, 32 years after the ADA was established, Salvatore’s Old Fashioned Pizzeria has failed to comply with these regulations, creating a barrier for individuals with disabilities who wish to patronize the establishment.


As a community, we must hold businesses accountable for their lack of accessibility and demand that they take the necessary steps to ensure equal access for all. It is essential that businesses like Salvatore’s Old Fashioned Pizzeria provide equal access to individuals with disabilities, including wheelchair accessibility.


We call on Salvatore’s Old Fashioned Pizzeria to take immediate action to make their establishment wheelchair accessible and to comply with the ADA regulations. We also urge other businesses to review their accessibility policies and make the necessary changes to ensure equal access for individuals with disabilities.
