WASHINGTON, DC, August 25, 2011– Inc. magazine yesterday ranked Capitol Concierge one of the nation’s top 5000 fastest-growing private companies.

Capitol Concierge joins online retailer ideeli, Spirit Airlines, television maker Vizio, Honest Tea, Dunkin Donuts and Metrokane, makers of the Rabbit corkscrew, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“We are honored to once again be on this prestigious list,” said Lynda Ellis, owner and CEO of Capitol Concierge. “Over the past year we have worked to expand our amazing company, and are pleased to announce that we will be providing top-notch service in 15 states by the end of 2011.”
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2011 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 94 percent. The companies on this year’s list report creating 350,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $366 billion, up 14 percent from last year.
“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward,” says Inc. Magazine Editor Jane Berentson. “Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is.”
