Area Business Leaders Network Over Breakfast and Cupcakes

Area Business Leaders Network Over Breakfast and Cupcakes

An early morning breakfast and networking event drew dozens of Chicago-area business leaders to the Garden City Business Center last week to learn how to hone their social media techniques and to gather with leaders of the Lawndale Business Renaissance Association and the Business Executives Association.

The event, co-hosted by Roscoe, along with the LBRA and BEA, included a panel discussion on "Growing Your Business Through Social Media." The panel included representatives of a jeans manufacturing company, an upscale cupcake bakery and a junk removal service, who described the range of strategies they employ for connecting with prospective and current customers on social media, along with techniques for dealing with negative reviews.

Industry & Community Leadership: Beyond the Bottom Line

Roscoe Corporate Social Responsibility

At Roscoe, we've worked hard to earn our reputation for providing high quality work uniform rentals and unmatched customer service.

But behind the scenes, we work just as hard to be a good neighbor to our community, a responsible steward of the environment and a leader to the industry.

There's more to running a business than the bottom line. Especially when the business is one your family founded three generations back. We are building something we can be proud to leave to the next generation, and a place where our employees will be proud to work, now – and a decade from now. We want to be an asset to our community – the community where we go to work, where our customers reside and the same community that our team members call home.

We know that's not something that can be accomplished just by talking about it, so here's what we've been up to recently.

Roscoe Hosts LBRA Event at Garden City Business Center

The Roscoe Company played host to the recent annual meeting and networking event of the Lawndale Business Renaissance Association (LBRA). The meeting brought together business owners from both Lawndale and Little Village at the Garden City Business Center and was a good opportunity to reflect on the LBRA's impact on the community and how the Garden City Business Center supports local small businesses.

Mission & Impact of the LBRA

The event, which included the seating of new board members and an awards ceremony, highlighted the association's growing membership and efforts to improve connections between the Lawndale and Little Village communities. The LBRA, which has expanded to include Little Village, was created to revitalize, grow and attract new businesses to the area with a mix of networking, problem solving and facilitating of local, state and federal programs and incentives.

More than 50 companies are members of the association, which has assisted in efforts resulting in more than $8 million in area economic impact since 2014 – including more than $2 million last year.
