Louisville, KY, Aug. 23, 2023 — Inc. revealed their 2023 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America that had Dan-O’s Seasoning coming in as No. 37. This prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment of independent, entrepreneurial businesses. The list represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to 2,238%. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
“We’re incredibly honored to be recognized on Inc. 5000 as one of America’s fastest growing private companies. This honor reflects all the blood, sweat, and tears poured into Dan-O’s since its creation and reflects our true values as a company.” said Phillip Crosby, CEO of Dan-O’s. Dan-O’s has disrupted the seasoning industry with over seven million followers across social media platforms, over one million bottles sold, and availability in over 30,000 retail locations. Dan-O’s has been recognized for its growth and industry achievements on local and national levels such as Louisville Business First’s Fast 50, and Inc. Regionals list for the Southeast.

“It’s an incredible honor to see Dan-O’s being recognized on Inc. 5000,” shared Dan Oliver, the founder of Dan-O’. “When I first started Dan-O’s, I had a simple goal of sharing that Yum Yum Get Ya Sum with the world and being on every dinner table.
