Arizona Fireplaces Earns its spot on Inc5000 2022 List with Three-Year Revenue Growth of 161.157%

Arizona Fireplaces Receives Ranking No. 3277 Among America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

Phoenix, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Arizona Fireplaces has once again earned its spot on the annual Inc5000 list, ranking at #3277 on the most prestigious standing of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

When asked about what it means to “make the list” again, Keith Richardson, President at Arizona Fireplaces replied, “We are excited and humbled to be on the list again. Our team has worked hard overcoming the many hurdles thrown our way this past year. All the credit goes to our hard-working employees and loyal customer base. Our goal for this year is to double down and work even harder to deliver a great product and service to our customer base.”

Entrepreneurial Mindset

Companies on the Inc5000 2022 list have been successful, and also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc5000 can be found at  Included are company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.

In conclusion, “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.”
