Cassetta Cassetta Cassetta Agency Inc., located at 3000 Delaware Ave., will celebrate 60 years in business this weekend.

“In today’s world, it’s such a huge milestone,” said president and owner Kathy Cassetta of being in business since 1958.

Her father, Joseph Cassetta Sr., established the agency from the basement of his home on Thurston Avenue.

The agency provides individuals and businesses in Buffalo and Western New York with a range of insurance coverage, including auto, homeowners and business insurance.

According to the agency’s website, Joseph Cassetta Sr. quickly grew the insurance agency to its first physical office on Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo and emphasized to his staff that every client deserves to be treated the same way.

Under his leadership, the agency was also part of large building and construction projects in the city, including enhancements to Memorial Auditorium and Kleinhans Music Hall.

Kathy Cassetta continues her father’s vision and has been in the insurance business for almost 38 years.

Cassetta noted that she started answering phones for the company, and there’s not a desk that she hasn’t occupied.

In 2016, the agency moved from its previous location at 810 Kenmore Ave. to a more spacious office at 3000 Delaware Ave.

Cassetta said she finds excitement when thinking about the 60 years and is looking forward to the next 40 that come along with the next generation.

“Our agency has a great reputation and staff,” Cassetta said, adding that she has enjoyed watching the agency grow to its current size after getting its start on Thurston Avenue.

At the Kenmore office, the total staff comprises 10 members. The agency also has another office in Orchard Park, located at 3800 N. Buffalo Road.

To celebrate, the agency will be having an open house from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9. The open house is by invitation only, but any Cassetta Agency customer is welcome to attend.
