Budderfly Ranks #10 Overall and #2 In Energy On The 2021 Inc. 5000 America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies


Comprehensive Energy Management, IoT-Based Facility Grids with Cloud-Based Control and Integrated Energy Efficiency/Reduction Solutions Propel Company to 22,468% Growth

SHELTON, CT, August 17, 2021 – Budderfly, the fastest-growing, most comprehensive energy management firm in the North American Energy as a Service (EaaS) market, today announced the company has achieved a Top 10 overall ranking within the 2021 Inc. 5000 list and #2 in the Energy category—equating to 22,468% growth from its 2017 revenues. The company’s impressive growth has been propelled through recognition and adoption of its innovative solution by customers such as KFC/Taco Bell, Subway, and Wendy’s franchises, YMCA fitness locations, retail chains such as JackRabbit, as well as skilled nursing facilities. Inc. 5000’s ranking validates Budderfly’s innovative, multi-component energy optimization program as a credible, sustainable solution to deliver resilient and responsible energy use.

Most businesses face two major challenges today: becoming more financially and operationally efficient, and becoming more socially responsible by reducing their carbon emissions. Budderfly’s unique EnergyCloud™ model simultaneously addresses both challenges by owning the entire energy savings outcome of all their customers’ energy components and layers. In addition, the company’s comprehensive solutions and management drive significant energy savings and related carbon reductions, allowing customers to focus on their core business. By eliminating energy inefficiencies, Budderfly’s integrated solution from billing and sustainable energy to HVAC, lighting, refrigeration, and beyond, converts energy waste into financial and environmental gain at no additional cost.

“Everyone from Quick Serve Restaurants (QSRs), office buildings, and retail locations to assisted living facilities and schools have one thing in common—significantly high energy usage caused by aging building infrastructures and inability to properly regulate power consumption,” said Al Subbloie, CEO, Budderfly. “We are humbled that Inc. 5000 has recognized Budderfly among America’s Top 10 fastest-growing private companies and proud that our sustainable energy solutions continue to deliver bottom-line results for our customers while paying environmentally-friendly dividends in the form of carbon reductions.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

“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.”
