Business applicants were measured by their compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors verified the information submitted by each company. On Jan. 26, the UGA Alumni Association will host an event to celebrate the Bulldog 100 and count down the ranked list to the No. 1 business.

The 2018 Bulldog 100 No. 1 business was Saucehouse BBQ, co-founded by Christopher Belk. “To be named the No. 1 fastest-growing Bulldog business was a tremendous honor and even helped Saucehouse catering with its expansion into the Atlanta area from Athens,” said Belk. “We’re proud to be part of this incredible alumni network and to serve Bulldogs every day.”
