Eleven Naperville businesses were recently named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing companies.
The small business magazine’s list included Third Party Pet, a company that helps pet store owners manage their businesses.
“It’s really exciting because it’s kind of a milestone for our organization,” said Chief Operating Officer Adam Stachowiak. “We started this organization out of our house about seven years ago and we were working out of a bedroom with one employee.”
Third Party Pet now has 65 employees and according to the magazine, it’s grown over 200 percent in the past three years, making it the fifth fastest growing company in Naperville.
A different Naperville business is making its second consecutive appearance on the list.
Youtech & Associates came in 1322nd on the Inc. list, an honor the company’s Chief Operating Officer Lauren Urban said location played no small part in.
“Having our first office in Downtown Naperville opened a lot of doors for us as far as getting in with businesses, being able to network upon those connections. It was really, really great for us,” said Urban. “We also have connections with some of the colleges in town so we get really good qualified candidates when we are looking for new jobs.”
Other Naperville businesses that made the rank are Dealer Inspire, Vetnique Pet Products, Launch Digital Marketing, Simplify Healthcare, Egen Solutions, Evolutyz, Edgewood Clinical Services, Impact Advisors, and John Greene Realtor.
All Naperville companies on the list grew by more than 60 percent over the past three years.
