Press release: Pet Parents
Inc. magazine revealed that Pet Parents is ranked as No. 1001 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia and many other well-known names gained its first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Pet Parents, founded in 2016, has seen exceptional growth. Ranking the 5th fastest growing company in Iowa in 2021, this is the second consecutive year Pet Parents has made impressive rankings on the Inc. 5000.
Blake Anderson, founder and CEO of Pet Parents, said, “The mission of Pet Parents is to help furbabies live longer, healthier and happier lives by creating products, services and an information platform to solve everyday pet parenting needs. Our exceptional growth is wonderful proof that our mission matches the consumer’s needs. We are incredibly honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row! This recognizes the outstanding efforts of our pack to support furbabies and fellow pet parents everywhere.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within its 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.
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 online. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says 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.”
Pet Parents began its journey in the beginning of 2016 and continues to grow in size every year. Recognized by Inc. 5000 for being one of the fastest-growing companies in America in 2020 and 2021, Pet Parents creates products to help pet parents raise their pets from birth to senior years, keeping their homes clean and pet families happy and healthy.
