Much of the success of our industry is based on bets—which trends will become staples and which companies are coming up with the right strategy at the right time?
Belgian Boys has enjoyed rapid growth among the latter of these statements, and one particular party has taken notice. The company was recently named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.
“We’ve spent the last few years putting all of the pieces in place to drive next-level growth at Belgian Boys: We’ve rolled out exciting product innovations; created fun, disruptive packaging; built strong retail partnerships; launched our own direct-to-consumer website; and, most of all, grew a world-class team,” Anouck Gotlib, Chief Executive Officer, said. “It is such an honor to have our successes recognized by inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list.”
The Brooklyn-based food startup has marked a three-year revenue growth of 253 percent, earning itself into the prestigious list’s top 35 percent overall and in the top 50 companies among food and beverage brands, coming in at number 1700.
The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American independent small businesses segment, according to a press release, which noted that many well-known names, including Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many more first gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” Inc. Editor in Chief Scott Omelianuk commented. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
Most recently, the Belgian Boys brand expanded into Walmart and Amazon and has ramped up its direct-to-consumer monthly sales by 710 percent in 2020.
