Outstanding Growth Earns Ranking in 2012’s Top 50 by San Diego Business Journal
Due to exceptional growth in providing client services, the San Diego Business Journal named At Your Home Familycare among San Diego’s Top 50 Women Owned Businesses.
The list is compiled annually by the San Diego Business Journal, an award-winning publication that examines the San Diego economy and offers analyses of the community’s ever-changing business and economic scene. Rankings are based on audited and verified company financial statements of 2011 gross revenues. This is the eighth time At Your Home Familycare has achieved this designation.
At Your Home Familycare is the top women-owned business in the in-home care industry in the San Diego region, among the fastest growing business sectors in the United States.
“It is humbling to be included in a listing of the top women-owned businesses in our community,” said Laurie Edwards-Tate, MS, President and Founder of At Your Home Familycare. “The economy is testing our mettle and the political climate surrounding small business is uncertain. All the more reason that the team from At Your Home Familycare is grateful to have earned a place on the San Diego Business Journal Top 50 Women Owned Businesses List this year.”
According to the Center for Women’s Business, the number of women-owned businesses in this country grew at twice the rate of all firms between 1997 and 2010. It is estimated that more than 10 million U.S. businesses are owned by women. Only three percent of all women-owned businesses such as At Your Home Familycare produce $1 million and above annually in revenue, compared to a six percent rate for male-owned businesses. Seventy percent of women-owned businesses are in the service industries.
