“We’re a small company with less than ten employees, and every one of us loves the excitement and disruptive nature of entrepreneurial businesses,” said Craig Lieberman, president and founder of 34 Degrees. “Being recognized on this list, along with other like-minded, independent companies is a thrill for all of us, and it’s indicative of the hard work we put into our company and the fun we have with it every day.”
Over the past three years 34 Degrees has more than doubled in size, generating nearly $8 million in revenue during 2012. The company attributes this fast and steady growth to securing multiple partnerships with large, national grocers, as well as the versatile nature of its all-natural crisps.
“We like to say that 34° Crisps set the stage without stealing the show. They perfectly complement whatever is served on top,” said Lieberman. “People can feel proud to serve our high-quality crisps when they entertain, and the retailers we work with understand the versatility our crisps offer.”
The companies on this year’s Inc. 500|5000 list report having created over 520,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $241 billion. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found online.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
