WACO, Texas—August 18, 2021—Neighborly, the world’s largest franchisor of home service brands, has been ranked in the 2021 Inc. 5000, a prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 provides an annual snapshot at the most successful independent small businesses in America. In its third consecutive year to be recognized, Neighborly ranked 4,345 thanks to the company’s consistent year-over-year growth with more than 4,800 franchises representing 28 total home service brands 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.”
Given the pandemic and its related economic challenges, the 2021 Inc. 5000 companies represent not only the most competitive, but those that have proved especially resilient and flexible in these unprecedented times. 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.”
