Missouri, August 14, 2019 - Inc. Magazine today revealed that Grillaholics is No. 811 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“It’s an honor to be a part of the 2019 Inc. 5000 list. We would never have made it here if it weren’t for all of the love and support from our customers, team, and friends and family over the last 5 years,” says Grillaholics CEO and Co-Founder Devin Dorosh. “I’d especially like to thank my beautiful wife and co-founder Katie Dorosh for always supporting me no matter what challenges came our way.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
While Grillaholics was ranked #811 in the fastest growing companies in the nation, it was also recognized as the #11 fastest growing company in Missouri and #41 in top retail companies. Mr. Dorosh commented, “We are very excited for what the future holds as we continue to grow by focusing on creating more value for grillaholics around the world.”
The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015.
