Rose Pallet Earns Repeat Recognition in Crain’s Chicago Business
For the second consecutive year, Rose Pallet has earned recognition among the largest women-owned businesses by Crain’s Chicago Business. This year the pallet distributor moved up one notch ranking 17 out of 75 on the list of the biggest female-driven organizations.
“I am honored that Rose Pallet has been recognized and ranked 17 out of 75 on the Crain’s Chicago list of the biggest female-driven organizations in our community,” said Rose Pallet co-founder and CEO Mia Allen. “We were able to advance one spot closer to the top, which means we’re successfully growing our business and revenue.”
Twelve years ago, owners Mia Allen and Amy Olson opened the doors of Rose Pallet in the west suburbs. While Chicagoland is a competitive market for pallet providers, they knew its central geographic location for logistics made this the prime place to establish their company. And their instincts proved correct. Since its founding, Rose Pallet has more than quadrupled its customer base and both Allen and Olson have been nationally recognized for excellence in business and leadership.
“When my sister and I first started out, we were among a handful of women selling pallets,” said Rose Pallet co-founder and CFO Amy Olson. “Decades later, we are honored that our success serves as inspiration for more women to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.”
Looking ahead, Allen and Olson are preparing for steady growth and expansion to serve the growing needs of their clients as well as continued networking and business development.
“Relationships are critical to our success. We are extremely grateful to our clients, partners, and network for supporting our women-owned business,” explained Allen. “Their choice to work with Rose Pallet helps diversify local commerce and enables us to reinvest in our communities.”
Rose Pallet is certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
