Tell us about the faces behind Sweet Carrot? 

Sweet Carrot is owned by Angela Petro, who began her career as a hospitality entrepreneur 24 years ago when she founded Together & Company, previously known as Two Caterers. As the company grew, she looked for fresh ways to provide opportunity for employees. As a result, Angela started her second business, Sweet Carrot, which grew from a food-truck operation to brick-and-mortar restaurant to an events caterer. 

Angela is a member of Entrepreneurs Organization of Central Ohio and serves as commissioner of the Ohio Exposition Center. She is passionate about investing in people by providing them with opportunities for development. She is also committed to giving back to the community and contributing to social change for the sake of gender and racial equity.
