You probably saw our latest press release that we were recently notified QuiBids made Oklahoma City’s Metro50 List – an annual list of Oklahoma City’s fastest growing, privately-held companies. This list is awarded annually through the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce. Why is this a big deal? Read on.
Many know QuiBids launched in October of 2009. Only recently did QuiBids pass the startup phase of three years. We’ve had to scale many obstacles to get where we are today. The challenge of building one of the world’s largest online entertainment retail auction sites is not easy. We’ll spare you the details though! Upon applying for the Metro50, we had to meet certain criteria and go through a verification process to ensure all company information was accurate and true. Although we wanted to apply for the Metro50 last year, part of the criteria is that a company must have been in business for three years. And we get that. Companies need to have been around for a while to show sustainability in the marketplace, longevity and to build trust.
So, to receive this kind of achievement in the time we’ve been in business, let alone from our backyard, is huge! It shows we’re indeed growing and sticking around for the long haul. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to be on this list with another 49 amazing companies. The rankings of the list will be unveiled by Oklahoma City’s Mayor, Mick Cornett, at an awards banquet on Monday, September 23 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. We’ll follow up with another post afterwards to reveal our official ranking. Fingers crossed for the #1 spot!
We must say, although we’re truly honored and excited to be on this list, we’re also humbled. In a press release issued on Wednesday, August 7, our CEO said, “We know all the employees at QuiBids have contributed to its success and we’re honored to have the staff that we do.” It’s true. We have amazing employees that help further QuiBids success and to make entertainment shopping spread throughout the world. After all, we did just open our doors to Spain! More on that later…
QuiBids would like to thank the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce for this recognition and to all its employees for their hard work!
