Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
DASHED, the premium restaurant delivery service available exclusively through Foodler.com, today announced it was ranked 119th by Inc. Magazine on its 32nd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The company also topped the list in regional and industry categories, ranking the seventh fastest-growing private company in Massachusetts, the seventh fastest-growing private company in the Boston Metro region, and the 12th fastest-growing private company in the business services category. No other restaurant delivery service was ranked higher on the list.
With the fastest average delivery time in the industry, DASHED has quickly risen as the leading restaurant delivery service in the Northeast, partnering with over 500 top-rated restaurants across Baltimore, Boston, Hoboken, Philadelphia, and Providence. The company provides delivery and marketing services for award-winning restaurants and national brands who typically don't deliver on their own, including P.F. Chang's, Pinkberry, and Panera Bread. DASHED invests more in bikers and scooters than any other company in the industry, with up to 25 percent of its orders delivered by carriers on two wheels.
“There is no question that our company’s focus on speed, above all else, has resulted in this prestigious honor,” said 26-year-old DASHED Founder & CEO Phil Dumontet, one of the youngest CEOs on the Inc 500|5000. “Since starting in 2009 serving only one restaurant in Boston, we’ve brought on some of the highest-rated, most-recognizable restaurants in the country, while maintaining our industry-leading speed and service,” said Dumontet. “This recognition truly validates our team’s hard work and execution over the past four years. We will carry this momentum forward towards our next phase of growth.”
The 2013 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 918.59 percent in sales growth. The Inc. 500’s aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,739 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated over 44,912 jobs in the past three years. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500|5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields, they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. magazine Editor, Eric Schurenberg.
The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2012. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
