For the third year in a row, 919 Marketing is recognized as the nation’s highest ranked franchise marketing and PR firm. The company is ranked for the fifth time on the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The multi-million-dollar franchise marketing and PR agency, located just outside of Raleigh, N.C., experienced an explosive three-year growth rate of 147%.

The Real Deal
Unlike some franchise supplier rankings, where companies are judged based on insider relationships, fuzzy evaluations or “pay-to-play” scenarios, the Inc. 5000 rankings are based on audited financial statements and unbiased, documented results.

919 Marketing’s growth is fueled by increased spending from an impressive roster of tenured clients and the addition of new franchise clients, including startups, emerging franchises, and Fortune 500 companies. The company has also aggressively expanded because of its award-winning work in the cause-marketing space, as the agency of record for a host of non-profit companies.

Work That Wins
“919 Marketing is thrilled to be the PR and marketing agency of choice for franchise and nonprofit companies that want to grow their business with our creative and innovative strategies,” says 919 Marketing CEO and founder David Chapman. “We are extremely proud of our growth during the COVID crisis where we hunkered down, plowed ahead fearlessly and triumphed during a challenging business climate. We have earned a renowned reputation within the franchise industry and stood out from the pack with our proprietary 919 Insights platform, an artificial intelligence analytics tool. It provides a roadmap for our content and proof to our clients that our marketing strategies are helping them meet and beat their growth goals. None of this would be possible without our tenacious team of top talent that charged even harder during the pandemic to deliver game-changing results to our clients. “

“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.”
