Hispanic Business 500
About HB500

For nearly three decades, the HispanicBusiness 500® has served as a barometer of the U.S. Hispanic economy. The annual directory of Hispanic-owned firms tells a story of increasing influence and clout in America's corporate world.

The 500 directory highlights a range of successful companies. On the first 500 in 1985, only 230 companies had revenues of $5 million or more.

In 2010, although many Hispanic-owned companies have felt the sting of this great recession in recent years, the overall revenues of the nation's 500 leading Hispanic-owned firms continues to go up according to the 27th annual survey by HispanTelligence, the research arm of HispanicBusiness® Media.

In 2009, total revenues hit $36.15 billion, the highest in the 27-year history of the directory.

In documenting the progress of Hispanic entrepreneurs, the HispanicBusiness 500® has given voice to small business entrepreneurs. Every year newspapers and TV stations around the country produce profiles about local companies on the directory. Major media from The Wall Street Journal to network news broadcasts discuss its significance. Marketers, academic researchers, and government officials study the list. Entrepreneurs feature their inclusion on the 500 in brochures, resumes, and wall plaques. For all those involved in the U.S. Hispanic economy, the HispanicBusiness 500® provides a measure of performance and progress.
