Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Mid-Atlantic economy’s most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses.
“Vape Guys has been able to achieve record growth through a strategic focus and prioritization of customer success, employee experience, and flexibility to quickly adapt to an evolving and heavily regulated industry. We’ve continued to see a strong demand from companies looking for innovative healthy alternatives to the pharmaceutical industry. During this rapid period of growth, Vape Guy has continued to invest in its platform to bring access to products that meet the needs of customers to better fuel their life. We’re proud to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in the Mid-Atlantic.”
The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Mid-Atlantic region. Between 2019 and 2021, these # private companies had an average growth rate of 381 percent and, in 2021 alone, they added 14,439 jobs and $2.66 billion to the Mid-Atlantic region’s economy. Companies based in the Richmond, Virginia and the Washington, D.C. areas had the highest growth rates overall.
