Source1 Purchasing Becomes Part of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Source1 Purchasing, a leading national purchasing services provider for the leisure, lodging and gaming industries, announced that they have been ranked one of America’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. Magazine. The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the most successful businesses within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses.

With 3-year revenue growth reaching an outstanding 239%, Source1 Purchasing is honored to rank in the top one-third of the Inc. 5000 (position 1580). The purchasing organization began business in 1998 partnering with hotels, restaurants, casinos and independent food operators as a source for operators to access nationally negotiated pricing for their food and beverage items. Now, the organization also offers a variety of purchasing programs with ancillary products, high-touch customer service, and data/analytics to support their customers through the purchasing process.

“We are operators serving operators and this is our passion. Our team feels honored to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in America. With a strong team effort that continues to expand, we strive every day to make a powerful impact in the hospitality and lodging segments,” says Scott Hoffmire, CEO/President of Source1 Purchasing.

The 2016 Inc. 5000 unveiled online at Inc.com and the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
