“It’s an honor to be recognized by Inc. once again as one of the fastest-growing companies in America,” said Tony Zaccario, president and CEO of Stretch Zone, and an under-30 business visionary who set the brand on its growth path. “Since stepping into this role as CEO years ago, I have been dedicated to continuing to elevate this brand within not only the health and wellness space, but within franchising as well. This achievement speaks volumes about our team and their relentless focus on improving the lives of our clients through stretching.”
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.
“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.”
