Nine FACS grads named to Bulldog 100 list
November 29, 2021

Nine University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences alumni businesses were named to the 2022 Bulldog 100, which celebrates the 100 fastest-growing organizations owned or operated by UGA alumni.

This year’s Bulldog 100 celebrates organizations from over two dozen industries, including agriculture, real estate, health care, nonprofits and software. Of the 100 businesses, 88 are located within the state of Georgia. In total, three countries and nine U.S. states are represented in this year’s Bulldog 100.

Each year, Bulldog 100 applicants are measured by their business’ compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period. The 2022 Bulldog 100 list is based on submitted financial information for 2018-20. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors, a Bulldog 100 partner since the program began in 2009, verified the information submitted by each company.
