Inc. Magazine recently ranked our parent company, Buzz Franchise Brands, on its 36th annual Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing Private Companies in America. Buzz Franchise Brands is recognized among other industry giants within the American economy such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many others who gained their national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. This is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
“We are thrilled to once again be recognized on this prestigious list,” said Buzz Franchise Brands CEO Kevin Wilson. “This is a true testament to the team we’ve built since we began franchising in 2012, and we are extremely passionate about our growing brands. Being honored by Inc. Magazine means bigger and better things are on the horizon as we look toward the future.”
Since its founding in 2012, Buzz Franchise Brands has launched two successful concepts, Mosquito Joe and Pool Scouts, with a third, Home Clean Heroes, expected to launch its franchise offering in 2018. By keeping franchise costs and fees affordable, reporting impressive growth and offering a strong support system, the company has continued to prove its financial strength and stability in the service industry.
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 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 Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 10 through 12, 2017 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as former Ford President Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and “Shark Tank” star Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, researcher and #1 New York Times bestseller Brené Brown, and Gravity Payments’ founder and CEO Dan Price.
The 2017 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2013. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2016. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2013 is $100,000; the minimum for 2016 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
