NASHVILLE, TN — Award-winning local financial services company Advance Financial was included on the Nashville Business Journal’s Fast 50 list of the fastest-growing private companies in Middle Tennessee. The company was also included on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country for the sixth consecutive year, at rank 2000.

To be included in the Fast 50, the Nashville Business Journal examines the revenue growth of the top 100 private companies over the past four years. The Inc. 5000 rankings review revenue from 2016 as well as a company’s growth over the previous three years. During this time Advance Financial grew by more than 180 percent.

I am confident we will be able to continue this significant growth over the coming years and help more individuals find financial independence.”

For more than 20 years the company has served communities through its more than 80 locations throughout the state. Last year the company committed to opening 25 new stores in 12-18 months and is well on its way to meeting that goal. Advance Financial also expanded its reach by offering its FLEX loan services online to residents in Missouri, Kansas, Idaho, Utah and Alabama.
