This week, Inc. Magazine announced that Spiceology was named to its Inc. 5000 list for the fourth year in a row; the list recognizes the fastest-growing private companies in America. Since first being recognized by Inc. 5000 in 2018, the company has grown annually by an average of 72 percent.
The chef-owned and -operated spice and flavor company provides ground fresh ingredients and innovative spice blends to make it easier for chefs and home cooks to experiment with flavor.
“Being recognized by the Inc. 5000 list for the fourth year in a row is a true testament to the innovation we bring to the spice category,” said Darby McLean, President of Spiceology. “From professional chefs to home cooks, we’re changing the way people cook and the way they think about the role of spice blends in their cooking.”
In the past year, Spiceology has grown through a relentless focus on raising awareness of its signature spice blends while also launching collaborations with chefs Alvin Cailan, Jet Tila and Kwame Onwuachi and global brands Maker’s Mark 46, Marley Kitchen and Hell’s Kitchen.
In addition to new spice lines, Spiceology launched its second e-commerce website dedicated to chefs and foodservice customers: chefs.spiceology.com. The site also announced the creation of Spiceology’s “Fresh Network” of distribution partners, providing more ways for chefs to order its grind-fresh, ship-fresh products..
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor in chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
