"We're honored to be included alongside all of these innovative and fast growing companies," said NaturaLawnÂ® of America President Phil Catron. "To be one of only a handful of green industry professionals listed speaks volumes of our ability to stand apart from our competition."
"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."
Over the past three years, NaturaLawn of America has grown 23%, a statistic Catron attributes primarily to the successes of the company's 66 franchise locations.
