GiftBasketsOverseas.com makes its 7th appearance on the Inc. 500|5000 list, proving all things are possible with a great team.
Arlington, MA – Inc. magazine announced that GiftBasketsOverseas.com is on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
GiftBasketsOverseas.com is delighted to be back on the Inc. 500|5000 list for its 7th time, ranking #3310 for 2021. The internationally known company already achieved what less than a tenth of those who make the list ever do, a 6-year streak on the list from 2013-2018. Making a return to the list after all 2020 had to throw at the world makes this comeback even more impressive.
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
During the uncertain delivery and shipping conditions in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, the GBO team worked to be as transparent as possible with customers. Constant delivery updates appeared on the website, and the team increased its communication with regional offices to stay as up to date as possible with current delivery conditions. But working around COVID-19 wasn’t the only thing the company managed to do. The company has also implemented additional payment methods including Zelle and Apple Pay, launched a Recipient Address Request service for customers who need updated delivery information; and even added new ways to contact them on WhatsApp and Viber.
GiftBasketsOverseas.com continues to learn and grow from its success, failures, and mistakes, increasing the ways customers can reach out to the team and provide feedback. The goal is to ensure that they’re prepared to handle what promises to be another challenging holiday season delivering gifts to friends, families, and colleagues worldwide. While they hope the situation will be better than in 2020, Dmitriy Peregudov states, “We hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. We’re using last year as a teachable moment. The entire team is focused on how to deliver the best gifting experience and how to be better prepared for the unexpected. Our backup plans have backup plans now, and it feels good to know that something good came out of 2020.”
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
