Benzer Pharmacy is honored to announce that it has been recognized amongst the 500 largest companies by revenue on the Gulf Coast. Specifically, the company landed in a 72nd position on the 2018 list compiled by Business Observer, the self-described “leading weekly newspaper for business leaders on the Gulf Coast of Florida.”

In making its selections, the newspaper took into consideration more than 90,000 business establishments within a geographic area that spans from Tampa Bay south to Naples, including a total of nine counties from Polk to Collier. For perspective, Business Observer statistics from 2015 alone reveal that companies appearing on the list were collectively responsible for more $186.70 billion in revenue, along with 791, 291 jobs.

Those numbers give Alpesh Patel, President of Benzer Pharmacy, strong reason to view his company’s appearance on Business Observer’s 2018 Top 500 as validation that the rising tide of financial growth currently sweeping across the Gulf Coast really is lifting all boats.

“Benzer Pharmacy has grown by leaps and bounds since our inception in 2009. This recognition is merely the latest in a string of achievements that sets our company apart and ahead of the pack,” Patel said. “The companies that appear on Business Observer’s Top 500 are often the fastest-growing, most innovative in their respective fields. It’s truly an honor to be mentioned in such distinguished company.”

Companies who earn a place on Business Observer’s 2018 Top 500 list receive the opportunity to get a feature story, as well as valuable contact information, included in the official print and online editions of the book. In an online article about this year’s rankings, Business Observer suggests, “If you are looking for business-to-business contacts or want to stay current on the major players in area business, the Top 500 is a must-have.”
