ezCater is a Boston-based company that connects businesses with restaurants and caterers through an online marketplace. It was co-founded by Stefania Mallett, CEO, and Briscoe Rodgers, Chief Strategy Officer, in 2007.
With its online platform, ezCater connects corporate catering orderers and sales representatives with nearby restaurants and caterers.
It allows companies to review menus from restaurants and then place an order for meetings or company events. Restaurants are required to have the appropriate catering menus and web presence to join the platform. ezCater has over 75,000 restaurants and caterers signed up on its platform. ezCater’s catering management software helps caterers manage orders and deliveries.
The website also stores receipts and order histories, and gives companies the ability to let others order food for clients and events with set maximum amounts and tipping policies. Once an order is placed, ezCater tracks it to be sure there are no issues.
In 2011, Mallett and Rodgers raised $2.7 million in Series A investment. Seven years later, in 2018, the company raised $100 million. That funding round was led by Wellington Management Company, with existing investors such as ICONIQ Capital and Insight Venture Partners participating as well. This brought ezCater’s total funding to $170 million with a valuation of $700 million.
Highest paying job titles at ezCater include Business Analyst, Compliance Counsel, and Global Marketing Manager
