As reported by BIS here.

 

Parker’s, a Savannah-based chain of convenience stores, has been included on the Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the fourth consecutive year.

Inc. released the complete list of honorees today and will recognize winners in the September 2015 issue of the magazine and at the 2015 Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala from Oct. 21-23 in Orlando.

“Only a tiny fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years,” said Eric Schurenberg, Inc. president and editor-in-chief.

To make the cut, companies needed to achieve significant sales growth between 2011 and 2014.

Parker’s, which operates 38 stores, has opened eight new retail locations over the past year and has plans for more.

“We’re preparing for explosive growth and plan to open 10 stores within the next year,” said Greg Parker, president and CEO of Parker’s. “We’re excited about the future and about our potential for smart, strategic growth.”
