Buzz Franchise Brands Selected for Inc. 5000
We are happy to announce that Buzz Franchise Brands received the prestigious honor of being named as one of America’s Fastest Growing Companies by Inc. Magazine! We are recognized among other industry giants such as Microsoft, Dell and Domino’s Pizza. CEO Kevin Wilson said, “We are thrilled to once again be recognized on this prestigious list. 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.”
Who is Inc.?
Inc. Media was founded in 1979, and acquired in 2005 by Mansueto Ventures, Inc. It is currently the only major brand dedicated exclusively to owners and managers of growing private companies. The company started the Inc. 5000 list in 1982 to celebrate companies’ entrepreneurial success, which has grown into one of the most prestigious achievements that a company can receive.
What It Means to be an Inc. 5000 Company
Each year, Inc. Magazine publishes a list of the top nationally ranked fastest-growing private companies. This year was one of the most competitive in the publication’s history, with the average company on the list achieving a three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000 list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. The aggregate revenue of the companies on the list is about $206 billion.
To honor the companies who made the list, there will be an event held in Palm Desert, California in October, which includes speakers from Ford President Alan Mullaly to Shark Tank star Daymond John. In addition to celebrating the success of the companies on the list, there are workshops, keynote speakers, and evening events.
Buzz Franchise Brands History
Buzz Franchise Brands was founded in 2012 and has a focus on providing quality services to the home. Since 2012, we have launched three brands, Mosquito Joe, Pool Scouts and the newest addition, Home Clean Heroes. Home Clean Heroes, which provides house cleaning services, will start franchising next year. Over the past five years, Buzz Franchise Brands has grown significantly, starting with only five employees and now sits at over 30 employees. There are currently 235 franchise locations open across 32 states, with an additional 75 locations under development.
Receiving a spot on the Inc. 5000 list is something we’re honored to be a part of, but it’s also something to continue to work hard to achieve again moving forward. We were included on the Inc. 5000 list last year, which encouraged us to gain momentum again this year, resulting in another win. We will continue to be driven, act with purpose, and be passionate about our work to help others live out our dream. We are so grateful to do what we love and see that recognized with an honor like this and expect to continue this achievement next year.
