A Bit of Allen History
How We’re Different & Better
Let’s face it, at Allen it’s more than just getting the job done. We are a family business comprised of many different families. We celebrate our successes and we work through our troubles just like your family does. At Allen we work very hard to “Grow and Prosper”. One of the things we do at Allen that is different is when we hit our sales goal for the month, the Management Team celebrates by serving breakfast to everyone in the company. It is a tradition that everyone looks forward to.
Many years ago we introduced a company benefit that all on the Allen Team loves. We close on Friday at 4pm. There is nothing better than getting a jump on the weekend.
Thanksgiving is our favorite time of year. It’s a time to remember there are folks in our community that might be facing troubled times. For many years now Allen has been involved in supporting the Small Business Council of Rochester by providing food baskets to families in need. The Allen Team of employees all help make this happen. Our goal is to provide a Thanksgiving basket of food to as many families as we have employees.
