Tasteful Selections named in Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Inc. Magazine revealed that Tasteful Selections ranked No. 3,644 on its annual Inc. 5,000 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5,000.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be featured once again on this year’s Inc. 5,000 list,” Bob Bender, president of Tasteful Selections said. “The growth our company has seen in the last few years can easily be traced back to the wonderful employees that make up the Tasteful Selections team. We are eager to keep growing the team and our organization in the years to come.”
Tasteful Selections began their company growing 1,200 acres. Over the last 11 years, Tasteful Selection has grown to an operation that plants and harvests nearly 18,000 acres of bite-size potatoes year-round.
“The 2021 Inc. 5,000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5,000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
