NEW YORK, August 12, 2020Inc. magazine today revealed that Intelligent Blends is No. 2,381 on its 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“We are honored to be included in the Inc. 5000 2020 list.  Back in 2013 we saw an opportunity in K-cups and the single serve beverage market and we dove right in.  We are grateful for our success to date that is owed to a large group of pioneering Co-pack customers and to our team driving our Maud’s brand each and every day.  None of this could have happened without the amazing and dedicated team we have developed at Intelligent Blends.”

Michael Ishayik, CEO
