Inc. Magazing Unveils It's 37th Annual List of America's Fastest-Growting Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

LOUISVILLE, KY August 20, 2018 – Inc. Magazine revealed that Car Keys Express is No. 2881 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000 list, 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. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“It’s an honor,” said Car Keys Express Founder and Owner Mark Lanwehr. “Obviously, the larger the company grows, the more difficult it becomes to maintain the levels of growth necessary to qualify for such an award. That’s why this year’s award means even more to me than our previous rankings in 2016 and 2017. The fact we’re able to maintain our growth trajectory is a direct result of the talent and drive of our team members.”

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor-in-chief James Ledbetter. “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.”

Car Keys Express made its inaugural appearance on Inc. 5000 in 2016, debuting as the No. 9 fastest-growing company in Kentucky and ranking at No. 2,485 in the US. In 2017, the company was No. 2,864 in the rankings. More information about the company and its achievements can be found at
