The University of South Florida (USF) Alumni Association will honor the 2016 USF Fast 56 – the fastest growing USF alumni owned or led businesses in the world – on Friday, April 29, in the Marshall Student Center Ballroom and Oval Theater at USF Tampa.
Holy Hog Barbeque led by Daniel Hernandez is a locally owned and operated hometown smokehouse. Holy Hog Barbeque will be one of 56 USF Bull-owned or led businesses inducted into the 2016 USF Fast 56 by USF System President Judy Genshaft and USF Alumni Association Board of Directors Chair Betty Otter-Nickerson.
“Holy Hog Barbeque is thrilled to be recognized by the University of South Florida for the growth of our business,” said Daniel Hernandez. “We thank our valued clients for the continued loyalty and confidence they have placed in us. We look forward to continuing to serve their barbeque needs in the future.”
To be considered for the USF Fast 56 program, an organization must have been in business for at least three years, have revenues of $250,000 or more for the most recent 12-month period, and be owned or led by a University of South Florida alumnus.
The 2016 USF Fast 56 companies were ranked by percentage of cumulative annual growth in revenue, as documented by Cherry Bekaert, a public accounting firm based in Tampa. Fifty-six USF alumni owned or led businesses were selected as recipients, in recognition of the year USF was founded, 1956.
“We’re proud to recognize Holy Hog Barbeque as one of the 56 fastest growing USF Bull-led businesses in the world,” said USF Alumni Association Executive Director Bill McCausland. “We look forward to celebrating on April 29, when we’ll reveal the Top 25.”

About Friends of the Riverwalk
Friends of the Riverwalk is a nonprofit organization working in tandem with the City of Tampa to transform downtown’s waterfront into an active, pedestrian friendly environment for commerce, transportation, entertainment and fitness all to enhance the city center. While the city, as our public partner, is responsible for the design and construction of the Riverwalk, Friends of the Riverwalk plays a leading role in the generation of resident and tourist use through events, natural partner involvement and overall marketing of the Riverwalk. We also raise funds for Riverwalk enhancements such as shade structures, docks, more educational opportunities and entertainment venues. Through private participation and matching grants from Hillsborough County, the Historical Monument Trail has taken shape along the Riverwalk.
