What making the Inc 5000 means to us.

We just got more welcome news. Our company made the Inc. 5000 list for the seventh year in a row! You probably know Inc. as one of the most respected business publications in the country. Each year, the 5000 list honors the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S., and this year our ranking reflects remarkable growth once again.

This elite award does not come as a complete surprise to us though. Our dedicated employees and a unique focus on the customer have allowed us to be successful without compromising customer service. It’s a subject of major pride for our company, and it’s always nice to be recognized for our efforts.

So, are you wondering what all of this means for you, our customer? As we’ve grown we’ve been able to add more employees to better serve our customers. It’s also translated into greatly increasing our offering of features, devices and retail partner locations nationally, giving you more value.

For eight years in a row now we’ve upgraded our service and cell phone plans with more talk, text and data — at no extra cost.  Our phone selection has expanded to fit every lifestyle, especially in the smartphone category. As an authorized Apple retailer, we’re able to offer multiple iPhone options and interest-free EasyPay programs to keep it affordable.

And as we mentioned, our presence at stores nationwide has greatly expanded. More than 2,400 Target and Sears locations now carry our products. More easily than ever, you can find and purchase our products wherever you may be. That way, you can get a new phone or SIM card there on the spot and have it activated before you leave the store.

As we near our two-millionth customer mark, we’re remembering that our greatest barometer of success will always be exceeding your expectations.
