HomeWetBar.com, a top internet retailer, has been ranked by Inc. magazine as No. 1298 on its 5th annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive listing of the fastest-growing private companies nationwide.

Led by President and founder Keith Winter, HomeWetBar was also identified as the 54th fastest-growing private company in the retail category, the 11th fastest-growing private companies in Oklahoma, and among the Top 300 for fastest-growing internet companies.

HomeWetBar.com was recognized by Inc. as a result of its high growth rate, which has totaled 223 percent over the past three years. Founded in 2004, HomeWetBar.com offers a wide selection of bar, wine, BBQ, pool, and unique gifts for men.
HomeWetBar.com’s continued growth and success is in large part due to Winter’s commitment to providing distinctly unique gifts and expert customer service. An in-house call center staffed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic employees, many of whom actually own products from the site, enables customers to reach out for gift ideas as well as help with ordering. Few internet retailers have access to their product when a potential customer calls with a question. “We want to be your experts when you need a unique gift,” says Winter.
