MURRIETA, Calif., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time ever,, an e-commerce shop offering patio, hearth and home products throughout North America, has just earned a coveted spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list -- a round-up of the fastest growing companies in America. PatioShoppers ranked No. 1,639 on the list out of 5,000 qualifying businesses -- quite a feat considering the company, founded in 2005 by Todd Chism, only employs nine full-time employees out of their base in Murrieta, California.  But don't let that fool you.

Chism adds, "Of course our phenomenal team members take great care to ensure the customer is the focus of everything we do, resulting in repeat sales and long term relationships, but also placing huge emphasis on our visionary marketing efforts including search engine optimization for high visibility and killer sales marketing deployment creating enticing offers for happy consumers."

Meanwhile, marketing director Joe Sotomayor says, "While we are a small company, we have very ambitious goals and a vision of being the leading ecommerce business in our industry. That is what has helped us grow at a very fast paced rate in the past 3 years and we are not stopping.  Although our traditional product lines to this point have been focused mostly around the outdoor patio products, we are moving into the home and hearth arena and we anticipate this to help us continue our growth at an even faster pace in the near future."

With the last quarter of 2010 fast approaching, sales at PatioShoppers show no sign of slowing. Despite the winter months ahead, they'll continue moving patio inventory at steady speeds and preparing themselves for what's sure to be an even busier spring and summer season in 2011.
