NEW YORK, August 16, 2022 - Today, Inc. revealed that SideChef is No. 2137 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to be recognized for the first time on this year’s Inc. 5000 list,” says SideChef CEO and Founder, Kevin Yu. “It’s been a thrill to see our company continue to grow and gain recognition for the hard work our team has put in. SideChef started as a failed dinner date that inspired a home cooking platform and has now expanded to over 13.5 million lifetime users and over 300 content partners. This is still only the beginning of our potential and I’m excited to continue to build a business that redefines the future of household chores and duties.”
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
“It’s an exciting milestone for our team and we are inspired to continue to push ourselves for even bigger innovations in home cooking, online grocery, and zero waste in the coming years,” says SideChef Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer, Cadence Hardenbergh.
