ST. PAUL, MN, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Minnesota Ice is on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. With three-year revenue growth of 206 percent, Minnesota Ice joins a list that represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.
“We’re honored to be recognized by Inc. as one of the fastest growing private companies and excited to be the first ice business to make the list!” says Robbie Harrell, Founder and CEO of Minnesota Ice. “First and foremost, there’s no way we could have done this without the hard work and dedication of our talented team.”
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have 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.
“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.”
“We’ve gone through a number of struggles with growing our manufacturing capabilities and adapting to Covid-19 challenges,” Robbie says. “At the end of the day, our team’s ability to adapt quickly and willingness to think creatively fueled our growth.”
Minnesota Ice was founded in 2013 in Robbie Harrell’s garage while he attended St. Thomas University in St. Paul, MN. Minnesota Ice is now one of the largest manufacturers of sculpture-grade ice in the United States and the leader in artisan ice production in the Midwest. The team has expanded its Pure & Clear™ cocktail ice program into multiple US metros and crafts experiential ice sculptures across the Upper Midwest. Minnesota Ice is a trailblazer of innovation and growth within the ice industry.
