Methodology

The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), founded by Harvard Business School Professor Michael E. Porter in 1994, defines inner cities as core urban areas with higher unemployment and poverty rates and lower median incomes than their surrounding metropolitan statistical areas. Every year, ICIC identifies, ranks, and spotlights the 100 fastest-growing businesses located in America’s inner cities. In 2017, companies were ranked by revenue growth over the five-year period between 2013 and 2017. ICIC relies on a national network of nominating partners, including city offices, economic development organizations, and small business development corporations, to find many of the businesses that appear on this list. Key partners this year were Staples, Chevron, FedEx, Kaiser Permanente, City of Oakland, Baltimore Development Corporation, Blackstone Entrepreneur’s Network, and Urban League of Louisiana. This list was audited by the independent accounting firm AAFCPAs.

Custom Pro Logistics is a premier business solutions provider with an intense focus on customer service and refrigerated transportation. CEO Devin Reilly recognizes the challenges of hiring in this industry and the need to appeal to a younger demographic because the work is “demanding, stressful, and you have to be available 24/7″. Additionally, the logistics space is rapidly evolving and heavily influenced by technology and smartphones in particular. Custom Pro Logistics has been able to keep up though, as evidenced by their impressive growth rate ($1M during their first year in operation in 2013 and over $26M last year). There has also been a lot of change happening in the neighborhood of Over The Rhine that they call home, which had previously been neglected. Devin says that being in this rapidly changing neighborhood “keeps you in the mind frame that change is good.”
