Chesapeake Plumbing and Heating among best entrepreneurial companies

January 10, 2019

Chesapeake Plumbing and Heating was recently recognized as one of the Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America by Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur360 List, a premier study delivering the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America.

Entrepreneur research shows that Chesapeake Plumbing and Heating Inc. is a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth, leadership and value.

“Our annual evaluation of vetted data offers a 360-degree analysis of top privately held companies across a multitude of industries,” said Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “They are deemed successful not only by revenue numbers, but by how well-rounded they are. The companies that make the list have pushed boundaries with their innovative ideas, fostered strong company cultures, impacted their communities for the better, and increased their brand awareness.”

Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure five metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship – innovation, growth, leadership, impact and business valuation.

“For Chesapeake, this award is uniquely special because it recognizes the heart of our core values and mission that make all other successes possible,” said owner Travis Martin.
