Jody Allen, President of Media 54 LLC started her business in 2007 after 25 years of work experience in Multi-Media Advertising, Sales and Marketing, Information Technology and Telecommunications. Jody commented to many friends, family members and business associates after her mother died in May 2009, that a cookbook including a story about her mother’s life would be a wonderful way to pay tribute to her.
Her family moved to Skaneateles N.Y. in the early 1960's as it was a beautiful, serene setting to raise a family, start a business and live their American Dream. Bill and Becky Allen, Jody's parents started a business in their garage in 1965 and together, planned and built a manufacturing plant in Elbridge, N.Y. to accommodate a growing number of employees and an increase in the production of products.
Their company, Skan-a-matic Corporation manufactured sub-miniature electronics which were used to make automation controls for various industrial applications. The company also worked with fiber optics creating products used in the manufacturing of medical devices. Later they developed new bar code reading technologies and systems for packaging. Remarkably in time, the company headquarters was moved to Boca Raton, FL. and a new facility was built in Deerfield Beach, FL to accommodate the production and manufacturing needs. Many existing employees relocated to this area. A few years later a new manufacturing plant was also created in East Grinstead, West Sussex, UK.
Skan-a-matic Corp. employed more than 500 people in the United States and in Europe at the time that it was sold in 1984. Jody's mother, Becky Allen served as Executive Secretary for Skan-a-matic Corporation, taking on an active role in the company, focusing on human relations, corporate goodwill and public relations. She was an elegant and gifted woman who was cherished for her charming, fun-loving and caring outlook on life. Becky’s friends would often say about her, “that her life was far more interesting than talking about the latest books that they were reading!”
