Welcome To Starved Rock Software Solutions

Starved Rock Country Software Solutions started out as a brilliant idea from two successful business men – Kevin Champlin and Jack Rooney. Jack had an amazing vision for a business idea: create high-technical, high-paying jobs for people in the Illinois Valley area. Kevin, a former friend of Jack  jumped on the idea. Soon, Starved Rock Country Software Solutions was born. The goal of the company is to hire on local high school and college students to gain the experience they need to thrive in the industry. This is something Jack and Kevin take very seriously. The first employee, Josh Grygiel, was introduced to the idea when he was a junior in high school. Once he started his senior year, he was hired on as a Web Developer for the company. Starved Rock Country Software Solutions does way more than just building websites. From websites, WordPress installs,  hosting, domain registration, database management, security, search engine optimization and many more, Starved Rock Country Software Solutions is your solution to all things web related.
