OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the fourth straight year, Complete Nutrition has been named to the Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The nutritional supplement franchise ranked No. 610 on the 2013 list with a three-year sales growth of 753 percent.

From 2009 to 2012, the period analyzed for this year's list, Complete Nutrition added 66 corporate jobs. The franchise also earned recognition as the No. 2 company from Nebraska and the No. 50 health company on the list.

"We are honored to once again join the ranks of the country's fastest-growing companies," said Complete Nutrition President Ryan Zink. "Whether it's with franchisees wanting to join our team or customers seeking to dramatically improve their quality of life, we are committed to sharing our comprehensive approach to health and fitness."

Complete Nutrition currently has 174 stores across the country and plans to add approximately 100 locations throughout the next three years through franchising.

Complete Nutrition offers more than 200 exclusive general health, sports nutrition and weight-loss supplements. Employing certified personal trainers, former strength coaches and others experienced in health and fitness, Complete Nutrition differentiates itself from competitors through its consultative approach to nutritional supplements.
