Leslie Rohland of Bluffton shows her Women in Business award presented Oct. 13 by the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.

Leslie Rohland, founder and owner of a number of Bluffton’s most established businesses, was honored by the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce with the 2022 Inaugural Women in Business Award.  The award was created to recognize women in business who have demonstrated exceptional growth, change and impact in the Greater Bluffton area.

The award was presented to Rohland at the Bluffton Chamber’s inaugural Women in Business Luncheon held Oct. 13 at Venue 1223.  

Rohland is the owner of The Cottage Café, Bakery & Tea Room; The Juice Hive; The Emporium; Sidecar Catering; and May River Coffee Roasters, all in Old Town Bluffton. Her newest enterprise is Village Pasta, scheduled to open in November.

Rohland was selected based on her longtime role in helping to grow, change and impact the Greater Bluffton area, her commitment to “giving back” to the community through her philanthropic works and donations to many local causes, and for her leadership as a woman who embodies a successful entrepreneur and business owner in the Greater Bluffton area.  

“We are so happy to honor Leslie for her longtime business leadership and commitment to the community, and thrilled to present her with the 2022 Inaugural Women in Business award,” said Natalie Osterman, CEO of the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.
