Adam A. and Meghan L. Swenson purchased the Roxy in 2014. The Swenson’s are local residents and graduates of Thousand Islands Central School, with Mrs. Swenson growing up in Clayton and Mr. Swenson in Cape Vincent.
“I hung out (at the Roxy) as a kid and with my dad,” Mr. Swenson said. “We went there for the fish fry. It was like a staple. As I got older, it was one of my favorite places to go.”
Mr. Swenson holds a degree in hotel and restaurant management, but Mrs. Swenson is the primary operator of the Roxy and restaurant, with his help.
Mrs. Swenson also operates Swedish Meatball Co. on Broadway St in Cape Vincent, (which is actually an Ice cream shoppe), while Mr. Swenson runs a charter fishing guide business with his brother, Erik. Mr. Swenson is also a state trooper.
