Candlelight Homes Wins MWCN Utah 100 Award for Fastest Growing Companies of 2016

SOUTH JORDAN, October 26, 2016— Candlelight Homes was ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in Utah by MountainWest Capital Network. The award was presented last week at the 22nd annual Utah 100 Awards Program at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. This annual program recognizes the 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Utah, the companies with Top Revenue Growth, and the Emerging Elite.

Partner, Joe Salisbury, had this to say, “We are very excited about the growth we have continued to experience in 2016. As one of Utah’s top four homebuilders, we are constantly striving to build the most beautiful homes at the absolute best value in our market. We feel lucky to be surrounded by a team of talented, hard-working individuals that share that same passion, and help drive that goal every single day.”

The Utah 100 is built from companies and businesses throughout the state of Utah that represent numerous industries and practices, and that have had successful revenue growth in 2016. These companies lead the way in business innovation, showcasing Utah as the business-friendly state that it has quickly become. MWCN is dedicated to helping the state’s aspiring entrepreneurs, and utilizes the Utah 100 to reward those whose hard work has produced successful intellectual capital.

“It is clear Utah is one of the hottest places in the country to start or run a business,” said Paul Skeen, chairman of the MWCN Utah 100 committee. “As a strong indicator, we had a record number of Utah companies vying for a spot in the Utah 100, along with over a 400 percent increase in the number of Emerging Elite nominations. It is a pleasure to recognize this year’s Emerging Elite companies and the Utah 100.”

The percentage of revenue increase of each company between 2011 and 2015 determines the Utah 100. Candlelight Homes has been recognized with this award for three years in a row. Also, in 2011, 2012, and 2013, Candlelight Homes was selected as an Emerging Elite. The Emerging Elite winners are companies with less than five, but more than two years of operation that show significant promise for future success.
