Runyon Roots: Zach Allen’s Story

We are springing forward to Zach Allen this week. He plays a pivotal role at Runyon. He manages our shipping department. He was born July 26, 1991 and grew up in Kentland, Indiana. Zach was a 10-year 4-H member and was part of the National Soil and Land Judging Team with the FFA. He also enjoyed playing football and basketball in high school. After high school, he worked at the Rose Acre Egg Farm working with the animal houses and was quickly promoted to the shipping department. He then found his way to Mikes Crew Carwash where he became assistant manager. In September of 2015, Zach started to work for Runyon, thanks to Heidi Barker. Zach’s wife Jill was Heidi’s roommate in college. Heidi recommended Zach for an opening we had at Runyon.
