Memphis, TN, Jan. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Surge Holdings, Inc. (“Surge”) (OTCQB: SURG), developer of the SurgePays™ Marketplace Network for convenience stores, bodegas and community markets that provide products to the underbanked, today announced that it has been recognized in Deloitte’s 2019 Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America.
Anthony Nuzzo, President of Surge, stated, “We are honored to receive this recognition from Deloitte as one of the 500 fastest-growing companies in North America for 2019. In just a few short years, we grew from a monthly revenue run rate of approximately $125,000 to over $5 million per month. We achieved these results while 2019 was primarily focused on product development and building our infrastructure to support our anticipated continued growth going forward. In particular, this award highlights our tremendous progress in the rollout of the SurgePays™ Marketplace, a product sales channel that disrupts the traditional c-store supply chain model by providing local retailers direct access to regional manufacturers from around the country. Overall, we believe we have built a solid foundation for rapid and scalable revenue growth in 2020 and beyond.”
