San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
For the first time, Parties That Cook ranks on the list of the 100 Top Women-Owned Businesses in the Bay Area. The prestigious annual ranking by the San Francisco Business Times, in partnership with Wells Fargo, is based on fiscal year 2012 companywide net revenue. To qualify, companies must be headquartered in the counties of San Francisco, Marin, San Mateo, Alameda, and Contra Costa, or the city of Palo Alto. Companies must also be at least 51 percent women-owned.
According to Researcher, Julia Cooper, the 2012 revenue generated by the top 100 Bay Area women-owned businesses totaled $2.9 billion. Parties That Cook reported revenue of $2,125,000 for that year, earning the company slot 95 on the list. Additionally, Cooper found that a whopping 49 companies, almost half the list, are 100 percent women-owned.
Parties That Cook originated in San Francisco, and has steadily grown to serve four major U.S. markets, including the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon. Its mobile cooking parties and innovative corporate team building events, taught in private homes and professional kitchens by accomplished chefs, create an atmosphere of camaraderie and collaboration. Parties That Cook events are designed for companies looking to increase internal ROI and productivity by working together more efficiently, boosting morale, and rewarding employees.
“It’s an honor to be ranked in the 100 Top Bay Area Women-Owned Businesses. As a small business, we have limited resources,” said Parties That Cook Founder and CEO, Bibby Gignilliat, “but in offering cooking skills for healthy living, we’re able to impact not only the professional lives of our clients, but also their personal lives. When we’re doing well, it shows that companies are investing in their culture, building stronger teams, and rewarding their employees.”
The full list can be found in the Women Owned Business report in the September 27 edition of the San Francisco Business Times.
