Kids Glasses Company Lands on Inc. 5000 for Fourth Consecutive Year

For the 4th Time, Jonas Paul Eyewear Appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 3038 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 184%

NEW YORK, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Jonas Paul Eyewear is No. 3038 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“To have made the Inc. 5000 list one time was a true honor. To have made the list four years in a row is even more humbling. What started as a two person operation with my wife, Laura, and I back in 2013 has grown to a kids glasses business that we are incredibly proud of," stated co-founder and CEO, Ben Harrison. "We, alongside our team, have put blood, sweat, and tears into Jonas Paul Eyewear, and it’s remarkable to see how it has grown and really began to flourish these past nine short years. This growth hasn’t come without challenges, as with any business, but we can’t help but look back and recognize how those challenges have turned into opportunities for growth and pushed us to get where we are today.”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”

A core value of our business is to be customer focused, where we strive to provide exceptional service and quality kids glasses and teen glasses to everyone who walks through our doors (or, in most cases, enters our website). Our goal when launching Jonas Paul Eyewear was first and foremost to offer stylish and affordable kids prescription glasses that boost confidence, but since day one it’s been even more than that - it’s been about building and maintaining relationships with our customers," commented Harrison. "We wouldn’t have made the Inc. 5000 list once, let alone four times, had it not been for the people who support us day after day. We can’t wait to see where the next few years take our team, and are confident that a continued focus on our overall customer experience will push us to become an even more well-known household name in the kids eyewear space.”

Founded in 2013 by Ben and Laura Harrison, Jonas Paul Eyewear offers a full selection of glasses for kids and teens. When the Harrisons’ son, Jonas, was born blind due to a rare eye condition, they searched the market for stylish yet affordable eyewear for kids. After their search turned up empty, Ben and Laura knew they wanted to create their own line of kids glasses to fill the market gap. Today, the brand carries more than 100 unique style and color options for prescription glasses, along with a line of non-prescription blue light glasses and sunglasses. The brand’s mission extends beyond creating eyewear that kids feel confident in. For every pair of glasses sold, donations are made to Vitamin Angels through Jonas Paul’s Buy Sight, Give Sight program, which provides sight-saving vitamin A to underprivileged communities around the globe.

They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021.

As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.
