Expansion and enhancements of the services and solutions each division provides to its customer base is just one contributing factor to the company’s continued success. For example, The WEBstaurant Store’s new office space in Lititz, Pa. boasts a test/demo kitchen for in-house product training, video conferences and photo/video shoots to enhance the user experience on the site. Clark Food Service Equipment, the company’s design/build division, has implemented inhouse 3-D rendering and virtual walk-through capabilities to its design consultation process.
Another factor to the company’s strong growth is its commitment to finding and hiring the best and brightest for every position. Continued employee education and an emphasis on teamwork and collaboration enable every team member to contribute to his or her fullest potential.
To qualify, a company had to nominate itself or be nominated by another company. Each applicant was required to supply three years of revenue information. Eligible nominees had to show revenue of at least $500,000 for the last three years (2010, 2011, and 2012), and also show increasing revenue overall.
SF&Company, CPAs and Business Advisors, then analyzed the data; companies were ranked first by dollar growth from year one to year three, then by percentage of growth. Once the dollar growth rankings, and percentage growth figures were totaled, the company with the highest combined ranking was awarded first place, with the other companies following suit.
