After surveying nearly 90,000 millennial-aged employees, Fortune and Great Place to Work compiled a list of the 100 best workplaces for millennials, and a local company in Chester, Delaware County, took the top spot.

Power Home Remodeling Group, an exterior home remodeling company based in Chester, came in at No. 1.

The no. 1 company on our list is known for a culture that puts people first and kick-starts the careers of young workers by helping them try different roles and advance quickly. What started in 1992 as a single regional home remodeling installer in Pennsylvania has become a sprawling organization with offices across the U.S. And the two millennials who launched the expansion, in 2008, are now the co-CEOs.

With an average age of 29 years old, employees say the company is focused on the needs of its millennial workforce. CEOs Asher Raphael and Corey Schiller are both millennials, along with 84 percent of the staff.

“We challenge our people, that’s a big part of our culture,” Raphael told Fortune. “We don’t want to just find great people, we want to challenge them to get better.” 

A few other local companies made the list:

48. AnnieMac Home Mortgage (Mount Laurel, N.J.)

63. Automotive Resources International (Mount Laurel, N.J.)

95. Toll Brothers (Horsham, Pa.)
