ROXBURY, NJ – Circle Bowl & Entertainment in Ledgewood, a TAPinto Roxbury sponsor, is the winner of this year’s local business beautification award from the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce.

The award was presented Wednesday at the chamber’s holiday party. Accepting the honor were Circle Bowl Marketing Director Garrett Stahl and its event manager,Jodi Snyder. Snyder's grandfather, Andrew Dougherty, founded the business in 1959 as Circle Lanes.

The family continues to own the establishment and spent about $5 million in 2015 on a major expansion and renovation.

“When my grandfather built it, it had 20 lanes,” Snyder said today. Over the years, the bowling alley stayed substantially unchanged other than “basic stuff like painting, carpeting and seating,” Snyder said.

But the 2015 project brought major alterations, including the reduction of bowling lanes to 25 and the addition of other indoor recreation offerings including laser tag, an arcade, a VIP room and a new pub called Big Ed’s Tap House and Grill. “Big Ed’s is named after my father,” Snyder said. “He just turned 82.”

In presenting the award, chamber member Bruce Bristol said the goal is to “look around the community and see which businesses have taken the time and effort to improve and beautify  … for the benefit of all the citizens as well as the businesses that are here now.”

Stahl said he and Snyder “couldn’t be happier” in accepting the award. “This is amazing for us to be standing here,” he commented. “We love being a part of this community.”

Also awarded at the meeting was Valerie Dolan, who was named the chamber’s business person of the year. Dolan, an accountant and partner at Nisivoccia, LLP in Mt. Arlington, joined the chamber five years ago and is its treasurer, said Bristol.

“She’s constantly helping our chamber and helping our community,” he said.
