Frank Myers Auto achieves hall of fame status

Frank Myers Auto Maxx, LLC  has been named to the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame for being recognized as one of America’s fastest growing companies for 5 consecutive years. The Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based used car dealership received the honor at the 37th Annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, announced this week.

Annually, Inc. magazine ranks the most prestigious and privately owned companies in the nation. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“It’s an honor that we were named to the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame,” said Tracy Myers, owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx. “I’m so very fortunate that my family has been able to serve the Triad in some capacity for over 90 years and that I’ve been able to play a small role in that. I truly believe our dealership is the BEST place to buy a nicer, newer vehicle because we focus on our customers needs and wants first instead of their pocketbook.”

Companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list have showcased staggering growth, with a three-year average of 538.2%, and a median rate of 171.8%. Inc. 5000 companies have accounted for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it is unparalleled recognition of years of hard work and sacrifice,” Inc. Magazine Editor-in-Chief James Ledbetter said. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”

The Inc. 5000 list, which began in 1982, has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The 2018 list is Inc. Magazine’s 37th annual ranking.

Inc. magazine today ranked Frank Myers Auto Maxx  #3006 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“I’m grateful for the amazing Team Members who made this happen, I’m thankful for our community for allowing the Myers family to serve them for the past 85 years and I’m appreciative of the world’s most loyal customers…the customers of Frank Myers Auto Maxx…for allowing us to serve them and provide them both automotive service and repair as well as with nicer, newer cars,” said Tracy Myers, owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx. “And while this recognition is humbling, my goal is to never lose sight of the fact that NONE of this would be possible without God because all things are possible through him.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
