How did RABOM get started?
The story of Ribbons and Bows Oh My! began in 2002 in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, just outside Chicago, when company founder Jennifer Huinker bought $50 worth of denim grosgrain ribbon and sold it on EBay. A stay-at-home mom, Jennifer was interested in a business which would allow her the flexibility of operating from her home and keeping her own work schedule. Today, RABOM is currently approaching $3 Million in annual sales.
