Meridian-based Scentsy has landed a spot on Forbes Magazine’s list of America’s Most Promising Companies. The only other Idaho company to join the no-flame scented candle maker on this year’s list is Idaho Falls-based Deer Valley Trucking, which transports water and oil on North Dakota’s Bakken shale formation.
Scentsy stands out on the Forbes ranking for having the greatest revenue — $381.8 million in the most recent fiscal year. Like Tupperware, Scentsy relies on a direct-sales distribution model. Founded in 2004, the company boasts more than 140,000 home-based independent sales consultants worldwide. In September, Inc.com counted Scentsy among the fastest growing U.S. companies.
