Lucky Number 13 — TCG Honored with Inner City 100 Award

For the thirteenth year, TCG is honored with an Inner City 100 (IC100) award. The Inner City 100 program celebrates the 100 fastest-growing businesses in under-resourced communities across the nation.  According to the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), 14% of the population, or roughly 45 million people, are inner city residents.

The ICIC developed the IC100 award as a way to recognize all that small businesses contribute to the American economy.  According to ICIC,  small businesses create jobs, provide vital services, and generate wealth for the betterment of their respective communities.

IC100 awards are published annually and unveiled at the ICIC National Conference, which was held this year on December 8. TCG is ranked 73rd on the list, moving up from 84th in 2021.

TCG is a proud D.C.-based business, but being an inner city business means more than contributing to the tax base. TCG has adopted two parks in the city and supported its employees’ volunteer work at area food banks, among other efforts.

Steve Grossman, CEO of ICIC, stated, “Businesses continue to contend with profound socioeconomic issues that have severely tested their ability to emerge stronger. The global pandemic, inflation, severe workforce limitations, and supply chain issues continually impact small business owners. Yet despite this challenging outlook, the Inner City 100 class of 2022 prevailed and stayed open for business.”

Winners of the 2022 IC100 come from 57 cities across 28 states from 25 different industries.
