The Hot 100 Retailers is the definitive annual ranking of the nation's fastest-growing retail companies. Rankings are determined by increases in domestic sales between 2017 and 2018; all retail companies with domestic sales in excess of $300 million were eligible. Hot 100 retailers averaged year-over-year domestic sales growth of 9.8 percent, which was below the 2017 Hot 100 growth of 11.7 percent. Kantar Consulting estimates privately held companies, franchise sales and domestic sales when the figures are not self-reported. This methodology is particularly important because it removes the impact of the companies' investments in overseas operations from the growth rankings to give a true perspective on the situation in the American retail market.
