LOUISVILLE, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Door to Door Organics, a leading natural and organic online grocer, announced today that it was named NO. 1,470 on the 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000 list, an exclusive ranking of America's fastest-growing private companies. The list is a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
Door to Door Organics attributes its growth to a strategic business model built around a lean interactive approach to both market expansion and product development. The online grocery space is extremely competitive and growing quickly as it currently represents 2 percent of the $650 billion in domestic grocery spending and is expected to increase to 10-17 percent of the total market by 2023.
“Being named to the Inc. 500|5000 is a significant achievement and milestone for our company, and our team is humbled to be recognized with the highly respected, trend-setting companies that join us on the 2014 rankings,” said Cambria Jacobs, vice president of marketing of Door to Door Organics. “Door to Door Organics has been able to thrive in a competitive industry because of our focused model for sustainable growth, local partnerships with more than 200 farmers and ranchers across the Midwest, a talented team, and a company culture that thrives on our employees' passion for bringing Good Food to the doorsteps of busy families across the country.”
Founded in 2005, Door to Door Organics operates in 11 markets and 30 cities with aggressive expansion plans in 2014 and 2015. Door to Door Organics has become one of the few companies in the industry that has a proven model and demonstrated record of profitability. The company has made more than 2 million deliveries to date and projects acquiring more than 40,000 active customers by the end of 2014.
The aggregate revenue of the Inc. 5000 list is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs in the past three years. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Door to Door Organics is named alongside some of the top companies in the nation such as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland and Clif Bar.

"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. president and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
