Gulf Coast travel website TripShock.com enters the Inc. 500 with record sales in 2014 topping $2.4 million and a 3 year growth rate of 2,386%.
Santa Rosa Beach, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/13/2015 --TripShock.com, the leading online activity and tour booking service in the U.S. Gulf Coast region, has ranked 173rd on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies nationwide. The annual list represents a large portion of America's top privately owned businesses, and has contributed to the early success of household names including Yelp, Pandora, Newegg, and SNAP Fitness.
2014 marked a year of unprecedented growth and expansion for TripShock. Annual sales totaling 2.4 million dollars resulted in a tremendous 2,386% growth since 2011. Greg Fisher, TripShock's CoFounder and CEO, attributed the rapid growth to a hardworking and dedicated staff. "I trust every member of the TripShock team to execute his or her job with boundless integrity and care," said Fisher, "high marks in customer satisfaction have played a pivotal role in our past success, and will continue to pave the way for future growth and expansion."
Inc. is a publication at the forefront of American business growth and innovation. The magazine, founded in 1979, originally tracked only the top 500 growing companies in the nation, moving to 5000 to account for a broadening entrepreneurial landscape. Placed 173 out of 5000, TripShock has bestowed upon itself the immense honor of inclusion in the Inc. 500/5000. Members of the top 10% secure an invitation to the annual Inc. 500/5000 conference and awards ceremony where honorees will meet list alumni, and enjoy featured speakers. In the past, well known business people and political figures including Bill Clinton, Martha Stewart, and Scott Cook have attended and/or spoke at the event.
Fisher has no doubts about the future of his young company. A newly minted deal with 30a.com, as well as developing partnerships with tour and lodging providers across the Gulf Coast and beyond, have set TripShock on a path for sustained growth. Asked how his company will experience the same success moving into 2016, the CEO had this to say: "We work hard to foster meaningful relationships on a daytoday basis, and are willing to take the risks associated with big gains. I predict 2016 will exceed expectations as we grow our client and customer base in new and exciting destination markets."
