First Coast Home Pros has been recognized as one of the 50 fastest-growing private companies in Northeast Florida for the third year in a row!  

What Is The Jacksonville Business Journal's Fast 50?

Each year, the Jacksonville Business Journal together with Ennis, Pellum & Associates CPA agency identify and vet top-performing private sector companies in Northeast Florida.  Based on verified financial performance data, these companies are then ranked according to revenue growth.

To be considered for this prestigious list, a company must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be privately held, locally owned, and for-profit

  • Must be headquartered in Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, or St. Johns counties

  • Must have been in business since at least 2011

  • Must have had annual revenue of at least 1 million dollars in 2014

  • Must have overall revenue growth from 2012-2014, and a revenue gain from 2013-2014

Final rankings are based on the company’s percentage of overall growth over a 3-year period, and First Coast Home Pros ranked 24th, with revenue growth of 44.29%.

With such stringent requirements, you can be sure these Jacksonville companies are the best of the best!  The Jacksonville Business Journal reported that this year’s nominees increased in both size and scope from last year’s ranking, thus increasing the competition.  Read more about the vibrant companies making up the Jacksonville Business Journal’s Fast 50, here: http://www.bizjournals.com/jacksonville/blog/morning-edition/2015/06/these-are-the-fastest-growing-private-companies-in.html

 First Coast Home Pros was created in 2008 by Joshua Kennedy.  When he began the company, Josh was a one-man show, providing window washing to clients throughout Jacksonville.  The company grew rapidly from the start, incorporating more and more of the services needed for the home, including pressure washing, roof and gutter cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, and carpet cleaning, among others.  The company has expanded even further to incorporate additional award-winning divisions, including Jax Furniture Refinishing & Upholstering, RugPro Oriental Rug Cleaning, and The Painting Craftsmen.  

In the words of the Jacksonville Business Journal, “To distinguish itself from the numerous other cleaning service companies in the area, First Coast Home Pros used a simple, but effective, approach to succeed — listening to its customers.”  As the company grew, clients began asking about additional services, and often, a trained and skilled First Coast Home Pros team was dedicated to that service in no time!  Joshua Kennedy, who remains the company’s president and owner, says, “We always listen to what our customers want.  If it’s in the realm of our expertise, we’ll do it.”
