Hi! My name is Patrick, I am the proud son of a Dutch Immigrant. My grandparents moved their family to the United States from Bussum NL in the '50's and landed in New York's Capital District. On a bit of a whim, and driven by job loss following the closings of B.T. Babbit in Albany, NY, and later Williams Press in Menands, NY, my grandfather purchased a small motel in Saratoga Springs; this is where our story began.
Some of my earliest memories of my Oma and Opa were at that motel, and in the Saratoga Springs area. Opa always told incredible stories of the visitors he'd meet at the motel, the characters in his stories would make regular appearances in sync with the host of annual events in the area. He always had a twinkle in his eye, and a grin across his face as he reminisced about the people who had traveled to Saratoga each year.
Along with my wife Jennifer, and an entrepreneurial passion inherently passed down from Opa, we sought a way to share our love for the allure of Saratoga with the world. In early 2016, Saratoga In A Box was born! We thrive on developing incredible relationships with small business owners in the area, people who remind us of some of my Opa's warmest qualities, and truly emulate the spirit of all that is Saratoga in the products they make; as a result, our family is excited to share with you some of the absolute best that Saratoga has to offer!
