Our Story

We’re Max, Chloe & Junior the office dog. Two Apple Inc Veterans and the co-founders of Rose & Crown Co. After a decade of being asked numerous non-Apple product related questions about online marketing by customers, we knew there was a need for local business support. Thus, Rose & Crown was born. We help businesses that we believe in grow through personalized online marketing strategies that are community driven. 

Max is a thinker, a researcher, a do-er, and a creative. Chloe has an eye for design, continuity, brand standards, developing marketing strategies, and impeccable organization skills. Together, our mission is to redefine the way small business owners connect to their customers and their community, leveraging online marketing in a way never believed possible.

The problem we are aiming to solve is taking over the often neglected task of internal growth and marketing due to the constant innumerable pressures of running a business. Your time is better spent doing what you are best at, instead of wasting time deciphering the world wide web. 

We specialize in Websites, Search Engine Optimization, Reputation Management, Paid Ads Management, Email Marketing, and Reporting & Analytics  for small businesses at an affordable rate.

We believe every business has the opportunity to optimize their Digital Storefront (website) and turn it into a lead generation machine. Are you a business owner? Let’s make it happen for you!
