Companies on the fast track
The entrepreneur-focused magazine Inc., is out with its new list of the country’s 5,000 fastest-growing small companies. The names from this area reflect the effort to make Boca Raton and Delray Beach start-up friendly.
Ranked highest from Palm Beach County, second in Florida and 70th nationwide is Boca Raton-based Fresh Meal Plan. As it name implies, the company ships customized meals, from Paleo to vegan. According to Inc., the company has grown roughly 4,000 percent in the last three years and has 150 employees.
The Boca-based software firm TouchSuite ranked 160th nationally, while Modernizing Medicine came in 311th.
