An Open Letter from Rebecca Block

7/30/2020

I’m sure by now you have all seen the social media posts about Todd Colletti and the horrifying things that occurred in his Colorado stores. What happened to these victims is despicable and unacceptable. Their experiences are devastating. Let me be clear: I believe the victims. I hope they find justice — and I hope they find healing. I’m grateful that the Denver and Boulder Police Departments have opened an investigation. If we can provide the investigations any assistance, we will.

These very serious allegations demand very serious remedies with immediate action. As soon as we learned of the allegations, we began working with our franchise attorney to identify our legal rights under the franchise contract with the owners of the Colorado stores. I want you to know that under no scenario will Colletti have a place anywhere in Buffalo Exchange ever again. The same goes for anyone who was in a position of authority who knew what he was doing and did not act. If you are a victim, or you have direct knowledge that you feel would help this investigation, please email Rebecca@BufEx.com.

As of today, our relationship with the Buffalo Exchange Colorado franchise stores is terminated. We have revoked any rights to the Buffalo Exchange brand and name. 

In addition to these measures, we’re reaching out to a number of local organizations that offer support to victims of sexual assault to provide resources for everyone affected. We will have more information on this in the coming days.

To the victims, I am so sorry this happened. Most of all, I want you to know: we believe you. I hope the actions we’re taking clearly show that we stand in solidarity with you. 

Sincerely,
Rebecca Block

Vice President
Buffalo Exchange Corporate
