Despite the financial difficulty being faced by millions of Americans every day, it’s not all negative news. In fact, new business is thriving, with many companies experiencing unprecedented growth over the past three years.

The growth of these companies has been recognised by the Inc. 5000, which profiles and awards companies all over the United States for their commitment and subsequent success.

Ranging from rankings per state to those all around the country, these businesses have made the extra effort, had the most unique idea, and have reaped the benefits of providing a business which has enticed a customer base.

Doc Popcorn

Placed at #5 in Colorado, Doc Popcorn was established by a husband-and-wife team who originally made the product in their New York City apartment! With a focus upon natural flavours and healthy snacks, the company expanded nationally.

The three-year growth was a massive 5,011% with revenue jumping from the thousands in 2009, to the multi-millions in 2012. With a friendly, family focussed ethos, Doc Popcorn has truly made its mark on the American food market, and the range of products now available will help to feed the whole family.
