March marks Women’s History Month, and today is International Women’s Day. Here at Paramount, we’re committed to gender equality in the workplace and empowering women throughout every field of our business. Our founder and CEO, Jodi Fyfe, launched Paramount Events in 2011 after more spending more than two decades in the food and beverage industry. Jodi’s passion for providing great service to customers has allowed Paramount to take Chicago’s catering, events, and food delivery industries by storm. From kitchen staff to the upper levels of management, the majority of Paramount’s almost 500 employees across eight distinct brands are women.
Because only 31% of private firms in the United States are owned by women, this International Women’s Day we’re encouraging support for woman-owned brands across the world, and we advocate for starting right here in Chicago. The millions of woman-owned firms across the country contribute trillions to the economy every single year, so join Paramount in celebrating women in business everywhere on this special day and every day of the year.
