With only $300 in the bank, Josh Kennedy borrowed a ladder from his Dad and started his business almost five years ago washing windows in Jacksonville's Urban Core. Now First Coast Home Pros has been listed as one of Jacksonville’s Fastest Growing Companies in 2013 by the Jacksonville Business Journal. His company has grown to 25 employees, 11 vehicles and over 6,000 customers. “We grew 300 percent in our second year and every year since we’ve grown right about 100 percent,” says Kennedy.
So what does it take to be nominated as one of the Business Journal 50 fastest growing private sector companies in Northeast Florida?
· Company must be privately held, locally owned and for profit.
· Must be headquartered in Duval, Nassau, St. Johns, Baker, Clay, Putnam or Flagler counties.
· Must have been in business since 2009.
· Must have had overall revenue growth from 2010-2012 and revenue gain from 2011-2012.
Once nominated, the ranking is based on the annual growth percentage over a three-year period.
