Vineyard Capital Partners, a leading financier to the funeral industry, recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in America

Atlanta, August 21, 2015 – Inc. magazine today ranked Vineyard Capital Partners, L.L.C. as NO. 1299th on its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.

“We’re thrilled to be included in the list with these other great companies,” says Jeff Boutwell, Managing Member at Vineyard Capital Partners. “It’s really more of recognition of all the great operators that we’ve partnered with over the past several years.”

Vineyard’s main line of business is providing funding for multiple regional funeral home companies throughout the country that are acquiring funeral home businesses. These operators are typically implementing a ‘hub and spoke’ strategy where they own multiple locations in regions that allow for both better operating efficiencies and better service to the families being served. The hub and spoke strategy also produces a better lifestyle for employees and former owners because the support system of the group allows more structured schedules and vacation time in a profession that is known for requiring work schedule for owners of 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Vineyard provides funding for funeral home acquisitions and works closely with many funeral home brokers and advisors but works most closely with NewBridge Group, one of the nation’s leading representatives of funeral home owners that are interested in considering a sale of their business. NewBridge credits Vineyard Capital Partners with one of the main reasons that its clients receive a higher price for sale of their business. Easier access to funding leads to higher sale valuations.

The 2015 Inc. 5000, which was announced online at Inc.com and with many of the companies featured in the September issue of Inc Magazine, is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%.

“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.

12 Benefits of Social Media Every Funeral Home Needs to Know

Ryan Thogmartin - August 10, 2017

Social media is 'marketing.' It's not the new marketing, it's the current state of marketing, and funeral homes and death care companies can no longer afford to ignore it. There are so many reasons why death care companies need to get their heads out of the sand and start engaging on the platforms used by over 68% of all Americans.
