Neighborly, the world’s largest franchisor of home service brands, announced today its inclusion in the 2021 Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is the third consecutive year that the company made the list, which represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses.
Neighborly’s placement at 4,345 is a result of the company’s consistent growth year-over -year, made up of more than 4,800 franchises representing 28 total brands that repair, maintain and enhance properties, united under one platform serving 10 million+ customers across nine countries.
“It is an incredible honor for Neighborly to be included once again alongside so many other admired organizations in the annual Inc. 5000,” said Mike Bidwell, President and CEO of Neighborly. “Neighborly — like so many other companies — has overcome a variety of challenges within the last year, all while continuing to provide excellent customer experiences to homeowners in need of home services. As we continue pursuing our vision to Own The Home™ through Neighborly’s family of home service brands, recognition like this signifies that we’re well on our way to making that vision a reality.”
The annual Inc. 5000 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. 5000.
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 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. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“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.”
