<Atlanta, GA> – June 28 2022, the Cobb Chamber of Commerce named Yalo a 2022 Top 5 Small Business of the Year at the Chamber’s Marquee Monday awards breakfast for its remarkable innovation, growth strategy, diversity initiatives, and positive impact on the community.

“Our goal is always to get better and stronger each year,” says Arnold Huffman, CEO of Yalo. “Being in the top 25 for 3 years and now top 5 in the 4th year shows that we are not only achieving our goals but surpassing them.”

Since 2013, Yalo has been transforming companies by injecting soul and passion into their brands. Yalo is a full-service agency that draws from film, art, music, and sports to create unique customer experiences. The team of strategists, creatives, technologists and account executives develop the best marketing solutions for clients across a variety of traditional and new media formats and platforms. Yalo is based in Atlanta, GA and Cleveland, OH, with outposts in multiple cities across the US.  

“We are so proud of all the small businesses that make up such an integral part of our community,” said Cobb Chamber President and CEO Sharon Mason. “The quality of the businesses, the work they’re doing in the community, the great jobs they’re bringing—it all goes toward making Cobb County a vibrant and successful place to live, work and play.”

To be considered for the Small Businesses of Year, each hopeful submits an application to the Cobb Chamber. The applicants must prove an increase in sales or unit volume, provide examples of innovation, discuss adversity and challenges, and thoroughly detail their community involvement.
