As founder, owner, and CEO of Together & Company, Angela Petro learned an entire business from the ground up. In her 22 years as a business owner, she has walked in everyone's shoes and become a better leader, coach and mentor because of it. In recent years, Angela was inspired to find ways to sustainably grow her business while creating more opportunity for people already in the organization.
Sweet Carrot, Angela’s second food-service business, is the result. After a successful food truck operation, Angela opened her first brick-and-mortar restaurant in 2015, creating growth opportunity for many. In 2020, she will open the company’s second exclusive venue, The Fives, in partnership with White Castle. As her businesses continue to thrive, Angela’s personal values have been ingrained into the leadership culture: While it is important to empower an employee to contribute toward the goals of the organization, Angela’s true purpose is to inspire employees to achieve their own goals and dreams.
This drive and motivation to create opportunities for others extends beyond the office. Angela serves on the board of The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio, and she is fiercely committed to igniting social change for the sake of gender equality. She is also a member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization of Central Ohio and a member of the Ohio Expositions Commission. Helping others and giving back to the community are Angela’s biggest passions. She is an inspiring public speaker and a mentor to many, helping those on their own journeys to reach their full potential.
