Chamber Mission Statement
The Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber’s mission is to be a catalyst for economic growth for our members and the community through advocacy, education and community enhancement.
The SoBol Recipe for Success
All year long they please the crowds. SoBol Port Jefferson Station serves up Acai, Pitaya, Green, and Sunshine acai bowls, plus a variety of delectable smoothies. They are the go-to, bright spot in the DMV shopping center, 1035 Route 112. Their homemade granola, the founder’s secret recipe, is a key bowl ingredient.
Numa Hernandez is the owner of SoBol Port Jefferson Station. He opened the doors with a 2020 ribbon cutting that was widely attended, including Assemblyman Englebright, Suffolk Legislator Hahn and our Brookhaven Town Councilperson. Folks were more than ready, as it was just six months into the global pandemic. The store was an instant success. With a stringent corporate kitchen policy, cleaning regimen, and carefully trained employees, SoBol is a busy, cheerful place.
“I have a great staff. We hired good, dependable people. Many are students from Comsewogue High School. One young person, with me from day one, is our Senior Shift Manager,” Numa told me.
Connecting with Numa is easy. He supports our Chamber of Commerce. He participated in the community egg hunt at the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce Train Car Park. He whipped up scrumptious SoBol samples on the spot for hunters.
Numa explained, “The Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in helping launch my business. I am proud to be here for the chamber’s Daffodil Dash fundraiser with Old Town Blooms. We also sponsor the Comsewogue High School Basketball team. Giving back and building our business go hand in hand.”
If you’re looking for something fresh, do yourself a good turn and stop in to SoBol. Wrap your hands around an energizing smoothie or acai bowl; none have added sugar or sweeteners. A favorite is the green smoothie recipe which includes spinach, kale and mango. Their new spirulina version is made with antioxidant rich blue-green algae. Add whey or pea protein for a balanced meal. Chat up the knowledgeable SoBol crew for suggestions. Check out their menu on Facebook: SoBol Port Jeff Station, or IG Sobol_port jefferson.
Polar Express Success
What a huge success! Our Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce does it again! A series of four business to community events- culminated on Sunday Dec 16, 2018 with the final viewing of ‘The Polar Express’ movie nights, inside our antique chamber train car at the corner of NYS RTE 112 and 347- offered with all the trimmings including ‘I Believe’ jingle bells tied in ribbon like those in the film, – gifted to all children, plus Polar Express Movie poster-backdrop Portraits, as well as those with Santa who surprised children at the close of the film – photos which families access from our pjstchamber.com site. This and more all due to extraordinary organization skills of our chamber Vice President, Larry Ryan, manager of Port Jeff Bowl and support of Chamber directors.

Jenn at the Keep Pride Rally
We are gathered here today to keep PRIDE in Port Jefferson Station. We LOVE our Community! Our community has so many wonderful things to offer and the best local businesses around.
We can not let bad publicity of our local area lower our expectations of where we live, work, shop, and play! We as a community are better than that.
The local business in this area and shopping center are hurting. They need the support of the community! Even though some of you choose to not shop here any longer, these wonderful local businesses still donate their time, money, and goods to our schools, churches and other organizations that we belong to. Think about that!
The small business is the back bone in every community and when an area within is threatening their livelihood, we the community need to say that we will not let that happen. Let our Voices be heard and our Presence be known that this community will be here to support our local businesses, no matter what!
