Fortune 500. S&P 500. Indy 500. Daytona 500. The number 500 has long been associated with the top. The cream of the crop. The powerful. That’s why we are thrilled to announce that we have been ranked #221 in The Business Observer’s 2018 Top 500 list which ranks the Top 500 companies from Tampa/Lakeland to Naples by revenue.
“At the Business Observer, 500 also has a lot of power. It’s the amount of companies, ranked in order of revenue, in this 76-page book, the Top 500. The weight of this issue stems from the quality — and quantity — of valuable information,” says Mark Gordon, Managing Editor of the Business Observer.
“Want to see all the companies in our nine-county region that did more than $1 billion in sales last year? It’s in here. Curious about the new No. 1 company in the region, that overtook Publix? That’s in it. Looking to research the biggest contractors by sales? It’s in this book.”
The Business Observer newspaper is the leading provider and most authoritative source of business and economic information affecting the Gulf Coast from Tampa Bay to Naples.

The publication is also known as a leader in identifying and profiling the region’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs and top business leaders while keeping its readers abreast of state, regional and local government actions affecting business and the economy.
“Over the course of three decades and counting, we have earned our reputation as one of Southwest Florida’s most established, trusted, and financially stable builders,” said Alan Foster, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Divco Custom Homes. “Our ranking in the Business Observer’s 2018 Top 500 index is a quantifiable reflection of our commitment to superior construction quality, excellent REALTOR® affiliations, and outstanding customer relations.”
‘Divco has always prided itself on staying at the cutting edge of design and construction,” continued Foster, “We are known as a progressive Design-Build leader for a reason: home buyers are attracted to the quality, value and design they see in our beautifully-furnished homes, and our revenue figures reflect it. We are honored to be recognized in the top half of the Business Observer’s 2018 Top 500 index.”
