Waste Pro has been named the fourth largest privately owned company in Central Florida by the Orlando Business Journal in its annual Golden 100 list. This is the sixth consecutive year Waste Pro has ranked in the Top Five on the list. Founded by Executive Board Chairman John Jennings in 2001, Waste Pro operates in ten Southeastern states with Florida being its most dominant market area. Under John’s leadership, Waste Pro grew into one of the fastest growing private companies nationwide – in its first month, revenues only reached $800.
Today, Waste Pro serves more than two million customers throughout the southeast employing more than 4,000 people with a fleet of over 3,000 trucks operating out of 80 locations. Waste Pro is projected to exceed $900 million in revenue in 2022. John’s son, Sean Jennings, was named President and CEO in 2020 and has continued to lead Waste Pro’s massive growth. “It never fails to humble us when we see ourselves on the Golden 100 list,” Sean said. “To be ranked within the top five for six straight years is a reminder of how far my father took this incredible company that he created and his trust in me to continue his legacy. It is not something I take for granted and I look forward to what is next for us.”
In addition to the Golden 100, Orlando Business Journal also named Waste Pro as one of Central Florida’s “Fast 50” of fastest-growing companies and the market’s fourth largest family-owned company.
