Turbie Twist Makes Inc. 500/5000 List

Turbie Twist, LLC has been ranked #789 on the 2010 Inc. 500/5000 list. Their current revenue has quadrupled since 2006 to over 4.5 million.

Entrepreneurs and sisters, Angela Carr and Christina Cummings took ownership of Turbie Twist in 2006 after they graduated college. They fell in love with the product while in school because it was easier to use than a big bulky bath towel. With the Turbie Twist they were able to get ready and dry their hair without a big towel falling off of their heads. They also loved that the product was affordable on a college student's limited income. The sisters knew they would be able to grow and market this product to a wide audience.

Since 2006 the company has grown from two employees to nine and has reported a 384% growth. Currently, Turbie Twist is ranked #43 within the industry of Consumer Products and Services. The Inc. 500/5000 list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2006 through 2009. Companies can qualify by being privately held for profit and they must have generated revenue by June 30, 2006.
Turbie Twist is becoming a household name and can be purchased at retailers such as: Bed Bath and Beyond, QVC, CVS and Sally Beauty Supply across the country. With the launching of new products, new retailers and a new website, Turbie Twist is certain to move up the ranks next year.

Turbie Twist is a great success story of a local start up with a vision.  Visit to learn more and find us on Facebook and Twitter.
