In operation for more than 40 years, Roman Inc. is the inspiration of Ron Jedlinski. His business was born in 1963 with $500 and an old station wagon full of inspirational products. With a family background in retailing – his father operated Roman's Art and Gift Shop – it was nearly inevitable that Jedlinski would enter the giftware field. With an office behind his father's store, Jedlinski christened his company Roman's Religious Goods in honor of his father who had given his blessing to the venture.
Jedlinski quickly carved his niche in the religious articles and giftware marketplace, and later expanded into other areas, such as wedding, anniversary, and baby products. Introducing products that motivate and inspire people has been key to the success of Roman, Inc. Grateful for this success, Roman makes giving back to the community a priority. In addition to supporting numerous local and national charities, the company’s major philanthropic commitments are to The Sunshine Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and the American Diabetes Association.
