Wanted: Top companies

There’s no cost to submit information or be included in our annual Top 500 ranking of companies.

The coronavirus crisis has touched everyone in different ways. As companies work to discern the best path forward, the Business Observer has an opportunity that can help companies promote themselves — for free.  

Each year, the Business Observer assembles a ranking of the region's 500 largest companies by revenue. The Business Observer’s Top 500 is a treasure trove of information about businesses headquartered in Pasco, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties.

This must-read for business leaders includes details about the region’s fastest-growing companies, from giant corporations to small businesses. In addition to revenue, it also highlights each company’s number of employees, what kind of work each company does, their top executives and more.

Being in the Top 500 gives companies the chance to be included alongside regional giants such as Publix, Chico’s and Rooms to Go. The ranking is also a key marketing tool that can be used to reel in potential customers and clients.

The Business Observer is assembling its 2020 Top 500 issue now, which ranks companies based on 2019 revenue. There’s no cost to submit information for the Top 500 and no cost to be included. The issue will be published in the Business Observer in August.

To submit for the Top 500, complete the form at It only takes a few minutes. Please submit by July 13.
