Family-owned Mici Italian, which has a location in Gilbert, has been ranked on the Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America.
Mici, a Denver-based operation with 10 locations, is ranked No. 4882, marking the fast-growing brand’s first appearance on the list. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We couldn’t be more excited about Mici’s placement on this year’s Annual inc. 5000 List,” Mici co-founder and President Jeff Miceli said. “It’s an honor to join the ranks of so many recognized brands. We believe that every neighborhood in America needs a more convenient quality Italian food option, and we look forward to providing that as we grow.”
