Lawrence Lady Boss | JANELL ROYER


Meet Janell Royer, one of the owners of Pickleman's. Janell owns both Pickleman's locations here in town with her husband Keith. Their cafe is a fast casual dining establishment that serves a variety of sandwiches, soups, salads, and pizza.

What is your goal for the next year?

Increase our sales and community outreach.
Who has influenced you the most?

Man that is tough as I feel my elder family as a collective has influenced me greatly. However, if I had to narrow it down to business I would say my dad and grandfather. As a contractor and a farmer they both had incredible work ethic and integrity. Both are things I try to live out in my own business.

What one piece of advice do you give to other business owners?

That every encounter you have with another person within the community you do business is an opportunity to cultivate a relationship. Be sincere and genuine and you will see your business flourish.

When you are not working, what are you doing?

Currently, I am "learning coach" to my three kids who are attending Lawrence Virtual School this year. When we aren't schooling,we are out in nature no matter the season. As a family we love camping, hiking and biking.

What Lawrence hidden gem do you recommend everyone checks out?

Lawrence River and Nature Trails are gorgeous. We love to hike and bike them.
