Featured in the September issue of Business NH Magazine, NH's Top 100 Private Companies are a diverse group of Granite State businesses making significant contributions to NH's overall economy.

Each year, the editors at Business NH Magazine survey hundreds of privately-held companies across the state, requesting gross sales figures for the past three fiscal years. Companies are then ranked by 2009 sales. The Five Fastest Growing Companies on the Private 100 List are ranked by their average revenue growth during the past three years. Also featured are the 10 Companies to Watch, which are fast growing companies that didn't make the top 100, but are high-octane businesses.

  • C&S Wholesale Grocers Inc., Keene
