Sharper Impressions Painting, a residential and commercial painting company serving Columbus, Atlanta, Nashville, Kansas City and Indianapolis, appears on the Inc. 5000 list for the 6th time, recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies.
Sharper Impressions Painting is ranked #4650 on Inc. magazine’s 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Its rising popularity in the residential and commercial painting industry earned the company a spot on the coveted list, proving its rapid success in all five cities it has expanded to so far.
Sharper Impressions was chosen for both its continuous rise in success and its customer-centric interior and exterior painting services, where customers can receive a free in-home color consultation and digital rendering of what their home will look like with new colors. After seeing a 50% growth over the past three years, the painting company made the list for the 6th time in the company’s history. Since Sharper Impressions has been honored more than five times, the company is now considered an Honor Roll business.
The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and mid-sized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Yelp and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“We are beyond thrilled to have earned a spot on the Inc. 5000 again,” says Sharper Impressions Founder Geoff Sharp. “Seeing this company continue to grow over the past several years has been an incredible journey, and to be recognized for the 6th time by Inc. magazine is something our entire team in extremely proud of.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000 list is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. Sharper Impressions is among many other successful businesses to see rising success this year, including Halo Top ice cream, S’well water bottles and EnviroSolar Power.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2013. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2016.
