Brad Griffith came up with the idea for Gametime in 2012, after missing a half hour of a San Francisco Giants game trying to persuade a bar owner to let him print his tickets using the bar’s printer. In 2016, Griffith’s last-minute mobile ticketing app, which tacks on a fee for each ticket purchase, amassed more than $48 million in revenue, up 34,000 percent since it launched in 2013. It has today signed up users in 53 major U.S. cities and seven in Canada.

Club Pilates Franchise is bulking up. The fitness company’s stated goal is to open 932 studios across the U.S. by early next year--and it’s well on its way to achieving that milestone. The company has seen tremendous growth since Anthony Geisler bought the business from its founder Allison Beardsley in 2015. Franchisees typically pay $200,000 to open one exercise studio, and so far more than 550 locations have been acquired. The Costa Mesa, California-based company reeled in $26.7 million in 2016 revenue, an uptick of 21,319 percent from 2013.

Company Description

Halo Top Creamery has sold 50 million pints since January, and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Founded in 2012 as Eden Creamery, the low-calorie, low-sugar, high-protein ice cream brand changed its name a year later and then rehabbed all of its packaging in 2015. Founder and CEO Justin Woolverton leveraged the eye-catching new look and a viral GQ article to bring Halo Top to No. 5 on this year’s Inc. 5000, after pulling in $49 million in 2016 and growing almost 21,000 percent in three years.
