Chalkpens was established in 2009 and is owned by Robyn Keen. Over the years, Chalkpens has gained a reputation for quality customer service and value for money.
In 2010, Robyn was selected as a top Finalist for the "ASB Young Business of The Year" Award and received great regognition for all the hard work she had put into the business in her first year of trading. She set up right in the middle of the recession when many small businesses were closing down. She knew it was a risk setting up during these difficult times but Robyn believed it could infact be a benefit to her company. Chalkpens are an affordable, effective advertising tool and businesses like pubs and restaurants were needing to advertise more than ever. She began targeting pub and restaurant chains across the UK and also individual pubs, restaurants and cafes. She went out on foot around her local area handing out brochures and fliers and slowly began to pick up business. In 2009 when Robyn set up the company, she had about 15 customers. She now has over 2000 Worldwide.
