SMU Cox School of Business recognized several Tarrant County businesses as the fastest-growing companies in North Texas at its annual Dallas 100 Entrepreneur Awards.
The Dallas 100, co-founded by the SMU Cox Caruth Institute, ranks the top 100 privately-held companies based on percentage growth and absolute dollar growth over the previous three years.
The institute held the 29th Annual Dallas 100 Entrepreneur Awards on Thursday, Nov. 21 at Omni Dallas, where a complete ranking of recipients was presented.
“They are entrepreneurial dynamos, creating products and/or services that in turn create jobs and generate income for their owners, not to mention the millions of dollars they collectively contribute to our economy,” Simon Mak, the Linda A. and Kenneth R. Morris Endowed Director of the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at SMU Cox said in a press release.
Mak added: “For almost three decades now, it has been our honor at the Caruth Institute of Entrepreneurship to shine the spotlight on the critical role of entrepreneurship in the DFW economy.”
The Institute worked with accounting firm BKD LLP CPAs and Advisors to examine sales from hundreds of companies for 2016 to 2018.
This year’s winning companies collectively generated $3.5 billion in sales in 2018, according to Caruth Institute.
Companies ranked in the list needed to have had sales of more than $500,000, but less than $75 million in the fiscal year 2016.
Ontronics, a Farmers Branch-based mobile device wholesale distributor, was ranked number one in Dallas 100.
The private companies in Tarrant County that made the list are:
|Exponential Property Group||Southlake||47|
|Rhino Medical Services||Arlington||52|
|Greentree Packaging & Lumber||Mansfield||54|
|M Stone, Stone & Tile Company||Arlington||94|
|Boardroom Salon for Men||Southlake||95|
