Rochester Top 100 announced; UTC Retail ranks No. 1

Rochester Business Journal
October 31, 2014

UTC Retail Inc. earned the No. 1 spot on the 2014 Rochester Top 100, the Rochester Business Alliance Inc. and KPMG LLP announced this morning.

The Victor, Ontario County-based company--led by Samuel Villanti--rose to the top of this year’s list after being absent from the annual tally for roughly a decade, dating back to when it was known as Ultimate Technology Corp.

UTC Retail, which employs 76 workers, is a retail technology company that offers products and services that help retailers improve their business. Its clients range from the corporate headquarters of retailers with as few as 25 stores to companies with thousands of store locations.

The Rochester Top 100 is a program of the RBA and KPMG. Since 1988, each annual Top 100 has ranked the area’s private companies based on dollar and percentage revenue increases over the past three fiscal years, with a minimum of $1 million in annual sales required.

Today’s RBJ print edition includes a 56-page special Rochester Top 100 supplement. Print subscribers also can access a digital replica edition. (Subscribers: See the RBJ Today email delivered this morning.)

The print edition with the Rochester Top 100 supplement can be purchased at these locations or online.
