Inc. Magazine Unveils Its Fourth Annual Exclusive List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

Comfort Keepers® Ranks No. 4012 on the 2010 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 32%.

Dayton, OH (PRWEB) Inc. magazine today ranked Comfort Keepers® NO. 4012 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.

"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."

Comfort Keepers is a leading franchise network providing non-medical, in-home care to seniors and other adults who need assistance with activities of daily living. This includes companion care, personal care and technology solutions that help keep seniors safe, in their own homes. Comfort Keepers' mission is to provide clients with the highest level of quality of life that is achievable.

Since its founding in 1998, the network has grown to more than 600 franchised locations around the world by staying true to the founders' goal of providing quality, caring in-home services that allow clients the opportunity to age in place. In August of 2009, the brand was strengthened even further by the purchase of the franchisor, CK Franchising, Inc., by Sodexo, one of the world's leading food and facilities management services companies and the global leader in the health care and seniors markets.

In addition to being listed on the Inc. Magazine 5000 list for the past four years, Comfort Keepers has also been recognized as a World-Class Franchise® for the last two years by the Franchise Research Institute.

Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. The effects of the recession are seen, however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from last year's 126 percent. This year's Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year's list. With unemployment remaining stubbornly high, policymakers and business leaders will do well to look to the Inc. 5000 companies for fresh ideas on achieving growth and creating jobs.
