Hundreds of Dallas-Fort Worth companies have experienced explosive revenue growth over the last few years, with one such business landing near the top of the prestigious 2023 Inc. 5000 list.
One Coppell-based company, Green Light Distribution, ranked No. 4 nationally, boasting an unimaginable 41,090 percent growth rate from 2019 to 2022. Green Light Distribution provides distribution services for small to mid-size wine and spirit brands.
For additional perspective, Green Light Distribution is also the second highest-ranked Texas business on the list. Nationally, it was bested only by St. Louis-based energy development company Birch Creek Energy (No. 3), Austin-based transportation booking company CharterUp (No. 2), and Nashville-based health services company CareBridge (No. 1).
Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked by percentage growth in revenue from 2019 to 2022. To qualify for the list, a company must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. The company also must have been U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent as of December 31, 2022. The minimum revenue required for 2019 was $100,000; the minimum for 2022 was $2 million.
In all, 482 Texas-based companies made this year’s list, and 216 of those are based in Dallas-Fort Worth. The report says 35 businesses are newly-founded, 119 are repeat honorees, and 30,301 jobs were added thanks to these companies.
