ezCater Named One of 2017’s Best Small & Medium Workplaces by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE
BOSTON, October 17, 2017 – ezCater, the only nationwide marketplace for business catering, today announced that it has been named one of the 2017 Best Small & Medium Workplaces by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. The ranking is based on 74,000 surveys submitted from employees at hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. ezCater ranked no. 41 among the winning medium organizations based on an assessment of workplace camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards, and career opportunities.
ezCater provides an online marketplace that connects businesspeople with more than 60,000 restaurants and caterers across the United States, making it incredibly easy to find and order food for any workplace meeting or event. The company has experienced tremendous growth over the last several years and credits its workplace culture of transparency, empowerment, and insane helpfulness as a primary driver of its success.
“We’re thrilled to be nationally recognized as a Great Place to Work,” said Stefania Mallett, Co-founder and CEO at ezCater. “Every person and team has been important to our success. We love that our people are happy and we love how they stay and grow with us.”
According to research by Great Place to Work, outstanding small and mid-sized employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service. ezCater and the other winning organizations are also more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
“The Best Small & Medium workplaces are laying the groundwork for future success by building trust, cooperation and leadership credibility. All of these enhance business performance and create a positive environment for doing business,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on research into employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.

About the Best Small & Medium Workplaces
The ranking was based on anonymous feedback from more than 74,000 employees working at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Employees completed a Trust Index™ survey with more than 50 questions assessing pride, camaraderie, executive effectiveness, innovation, benefits, professional development and other elements of a great workplace. Scores also considered organizations’ performance relative to their size and industry, as well as their ability to provide a great workplace for all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do. Survey results from eligible companies had a 6 percent margin of error, at most, with a 95 percent confidence level. Organizations with 10 to 99 employees were considered for the small workplaces list and those with 100-999 employees were considered for the medium list.
