Award recognizes ezCater for superior business performance and growth
BOSTON – May 11, 2016 – ezCater, the only nationwide marketplace for business catering, today announced it has won the Gold Stevie® Award in the Most Innovative Company of the Year category in The 14th Annual American Business Awards. As the nation’s premier business award program, The American Business Awards attracted more than 3,400 nominations this year from a variety of organizations across the U.S.
ezCater was recognized for its innovative vision and execution in redefining the business catering market. The company’s many accomplishments in the past year include leading the disruption of the $20 billion business catering market (source: Technomic), tripling the size of its business, and securing $28 million in Series C funding. Together, these and other accomplishments have enabled ezCater to meet the unique needs of an emerging business culture that increasingly relies on food in the workplace for sales calls, trainings, events, and even as a regular employee perk to keep and attract top talent.
“There are so many cases where geographic reach matters to people who order food for businesses: salespeople covering a territory, admins ordering for their far-flung offices, the list goes on. At ezCater we refused to be bound by the constraints that restrict every other food ordering portal to a limited geography,” said Stefania Mallett, CEO and Co-founder at ezCater. “We invented a clever and frankly audacious way to cover the entire United States. Customers can place orders at more than 45,000 caterers and restaurants nationwide, using our terrific technology and knowing they’re backed by our insanely helpful customer service. Customers tell us we’re a game-changer for them. It’s a real honor to have our efforts recognized with a Gold Stevie Award for Most Innovative Company of the Year.”
More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. ezCater was nominated and awarded in the Most Innovative Company of the Year category for companies with up to 100 employees.
“The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
