YETI® Coolers named to 2010 Inc.500 list
Hopefully by now, you have seen that we like to use the posts on this blog to showcase the friends, fans, and dealers of YETi® Coolers and shine a little light on all the great things you do with our coolers. From spotlighting dealers, filmmakers and outfitters, to sharing with you pictures of our coolers on scientific shark studies and polar research expeditions, we want to spread the word on your work and adventures. We appreciate all the pictures, stories and videos you send us…keep them coming! After all, you are a big part of what makes YETi® Coolers so great.
With that in mind, we would like to share some big news about us… just this once. Last week Inc. Magazine ranked YETi® Coolers No. 140 on its 29th annual Inc. 500 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. We are very flattered and honored to join the ranks of other great companies that have gone before us, such as Zappos, Patagonia, GoDaddy and Clif Bar.
Just adding to the sweet news was how high we ranked amongst the other fantastic companies in various categories:
- No. 140 of 500 on the Inc. 500 List
- No. 3 of 13 companies in Austin
- No. 17 of 52 companies in Texas
- No. 8 of 31 companies in the Consumer Products & Services industry
While we work very hard to make the finest coolers available, we also know that we could not have done this without you, the YETi® Nation. Our customers, friends, fans and dealers are the best in the world. As our CEO Roy Seiders said in the press release, “We are very grateful to have such dedicated, enthusiastic customers and such a strong network of dealers for our products; without them, this wouldn’t be possible.”
So, we would like to thank all of you for making this possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Pick up a copy of the Inc. 500 today and see your hard work in action.

Look Who's Using YETI
"If you put all the coolers that I’ve bought throughout my lifetime end to end, you’d have coolers from Homestead to Houston…Now why would YETI come along and ruin a perfectly good consumer like myself?"
Flip Pallot, Legendary fisherman/TV show hostRead More
"When I’m in the wilds of my Yukon moose territory, I need the toughest coolers on the planet to keep our supplies safe and fresh. Nothing compares to YETI."
Jim Shockey Hunting AdventuresRead More
"I never really knew there was such a big difference in the quality and effectiveness of a cooler until I got a YETI. Makes all my other coolers seem very temporary. Everyone always wants to borrow my YETI. I don’t blame them…but go buy your own."
Jay Gregory, The Wild OutdoorsRead More
"We log lots of miles each year pursuing deer, elk, and all sorts of other big game. Being tough on our gear just comes with the territory. Thanks to YETI, we never have to worry about melting ice, spoiling meat or broken coolers. YETI does the job like no other! Everyone else is playing for second place!"
Lee & Tiffany Lakosky, The CrushRead More
"In my world, a cooler is as important as a home refrigerator. Coolers have to be much more than just a place to keep cold drinks. They have to be a seat for a 300 lb man and a casting platform. I used to buy coolers frequently as the lids would be destroyed and they would no longer hold ice. No more! I have a YETI now; a lifetime investment."
Tom Rowland, Saltwater Experience TVRead More
"Insulated to the hilt and built like an armored truck! Finally, a cooler tough enough for serious outdoor use. YETIs are not only durable, but best of all they keep ice like no other cooler. Get a YETI and you’ll be out of the cooler market for years!"
David Morris, The Bucks of TecomateRead More
"Everything in my life is supernatural-safari grade from my underwear, to my bow, to my vehicle, to my YETI COOLER. Anything less than a YETI COOLER is like bringing a vegetarian salad to my birthday party Bar-B-Q."
"Razor Dobbs Alive" TVRead More
"YETI Coolers are the most durable ice chests I have ever owned! We use them on our guide boats every day and they look like new, keep ice for a week and make great casting platforms."
Rich Tudor, Saltwater Experience TVRead More
"The YETI Coolers are the Rolls Royce of all coolers. I have taken mine on several flights already and they even stand up to the baggage handlers in the airports. That’s the quality I need in a product."
Dick Scorzafava, The Radical BowhunterRead More
"Knowing the ice in my YETI Coolers will still be frozen when I return to the trailhead, I am able to hunt longer and farther into the wilderness. With a YETI, I know that the meat that I have harvested will be kept ice-cold until I’m able to get it out of the mountains."
Mark Seacat, Live HuntRead More
"I’ve never seen a product that is so far advanced from others in its category, truly top in class. There is absolutely no match for a YETI."
"As professional guides we want professional equipment. YETI Coolers are definitely professional grade!"
Rick and Julie Kreuter, Beyond the Hunt TVRead More
"Chasing big bucks from New Mexico to Saskatchewan, we demand the highest level of performance out of our gear. YETI Coolers protect our meat and capes en route to the processor and stand up to rugged abuse in the field. We don’t leave home without them!"
Pat Reeves & Nicole Jones, Driven TVRead More
"Finally a cooler that works and stands up to my lifestyle!!! Whether I’m chasing Roosterfish off the beach deep in Baja, catching world record Redfish in the Gulf of Mexico or surfing a remote reef break in mainland Mexico, YETI Coolers keeps everything cool and fresh even in the hottest locations. There is no cooler on the market that can stand up to a YETI. PERIOD!"
Conway Bowman, Fly Fishing the WorldRead More
"I got the YETI Tundra cooler, it’s awesome, a real hunter’s tool."
Mike Hanback, Big Deer, Inc.Read More
"If you think you’re saving money by going with a lesser cooler than a YETI, you are dead wrong. YETIs stand up to heat, weather, bumps and bears all while providing a comfortable seat for our rafting guests and keeping food and drinks cold for days. We used to replace coolers at the end of each season before we wised up and invested in the quality of some YETIs. Best on the river."
Zach Collier, Northwest Rafting CompanyRead More
