Terrybear Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Companies



St. Paul, MN — Terrybear Urns & Memorials has been named to Inc. 5000’s 2022 list of the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the US.

From their humble beginnings more than 35 years ago with their founder, Terry, selling stuffed animals on street corners, to their exceptional growth today, one thing remains consistent at Terrybear is their commitment to quality and service.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized on this year’s Inc. 5000 list,” said Terrybear CEO, Lavina Lau. “We believe in doing the right things first (for our customers, employees, and suppliers). These choices will ultimately lead us to success. While we never aimed to be on the Inc. 5000 list, it is a great testament to the hard work of our dedicated team, all our customers, and the vendors we work with.  They have made our success possible, together. We treasure all of these relationships.”

“Our work can be challenging, but also especially fulfilling. We have this great honor and opportunity to help grieving families celebrate the lives of their loved ones and beloved pets. With each urn we ship and each personalization service we provide, we put in a lot of care as we see them as long-lasting memories for many families, not just an order to be completed.”

The Terrybear team sends congratulations to the other companies honored on this year’s list, as they uniquely understand the trials and triumphs that fast-growing companies face.
