LesserEvil (www.lesserevil.com), the snack food company dedicated to making delicious, healthier and fun snacks, earns an overall ranking of 355 on the 28th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
The snack company that manufactures better-for-you popcorn and potato snacks increased its revenue 696.6 percent over the four-year period 2005-2008. The company ranked No. 7 in the Top 100 Food & Beverage Companies and No. 27 in the Top 100 Businesses in New York--Northern New Jersey--Long Island, NY, NJ, PA.
LesserEvil Brand Snack Co. started in 2004 with a mission to "make the world a little 'LesserEvil.'"  The company currently makes and sells two snack lines: All Natural Kettle Corns and healthier potato snacks called Krinkle Sticks. Both snack lines meet or exceed the company's general "LesserEvil" snack qualities: full flavor; lower in fat and calorie content; a hearty serving; free of trans-fatty acids, preservatives and artificial flavors or colors; and fun to eat. The snacks are currently distributed in major retail and grocery outlets across the Unites States, Canada, and Japan.
"Being ranked on the Inc. 500 is a tremendous honor," said Michael Sands, CEO and Founder of LesserEvil. "We owe our 'LesserEvil' Snackers out there a huge amount of thanks.  They are the heroes here, sticking with us even during a recession and helping make the snack world a little 'LesserEvil' with us!"
