Amid rapid growth, Harvest Hosts also announced surpassing 7,000 small business and community host locations across North America
VAIL, Colo., Aug. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — This week, Inc. revealed that Harvest Hosts is No. 70 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The brand also secured No. 1 in the Travel & Hospitality category and No. 1 in the state of Colorado. On the heels of breaking an industry record earlier this year by becoming the largest provider of private RV camping options around in the world, Harvest Hosts also hit a milestone of more than 7,000 host locations this week, expanding the network of small businesses and communities it supports through increased tourism.
The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. 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.
“We are honored to be among the top 100 companies on the Inc. 5000 this year,” said Joel Holland, CEO of Harvest Hosts. “Our mission is to help millions of people live happier lives through road travel, while supporting wonderful small businesses and communities along the way. The Inc. ranking shows that we are accomplishing our mission, and this fills us with pride!”
In achieving its 7,000-host milestone, Harvest Hosts saw more than a 300% increase in host locations since the start of 2021. It is anticipated that members will spend over $40 million directly with these small business and nonprofit locations in 2022 alone, of which Harvest Hosts does not take any cut or commission. For many, this can mean $10,000–$30,000 increases in annual revenue.
Over the last year, Harvest Hosts focused diligently on expanding to some of the most struggling industries in efforts to help – from restaurants seeing increased food costs to churches facing dwindling congregations. To showcase a few, Christ the King Lutheran Church in Lake Tahoe saw more than $12,000 in donations from members over the first year of joining Harvest Hosts; Our Savior Academy earns about $400 a month in donations that go toward supporting its student base with books, food and more; and Fluffy Farms winery in North Dakota has credited the company with helping their business survive the pandemic.

The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
