BOSTON, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- DASHED, the leading restaurant delivery service in the Northeast, today announced it was ranked No. 1241 by Inc. Magazine on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The company also ranked among the top 40 fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts for the second year in a row. No other restaurant delivery service ranked higher on the list.

In the past year, DASHED was the first to roll out a fleet of electric & eco-friendly SmartCars, further reducing delivery times & bringing a uniform, branded identity to its team of carriers. Today, the company invests more in SmartCars, bikes, and scooters than any other company in the industry, with over 75 percent of its orders delivered by green vehicles.
"We are honored to be on the Inc. 500|5000 for the second year in a row, and believe our focus on the fastest delivery from the best restaurants, above all else, will continue to speak for itself," said the 27-year-old DASHED Founder & CEO Phil Dumontet, one of the youngest CEOs on the Inc 500|5000. "Having our rapid expansion & industry leadership recognized consistently by Inc. Magazine is a testament to the commitment of our tremendous team of people who have dedicated themselves fully to the company's success."
DASHED has quickly risen as the leading restaurant delivery service in the Northeast, partnering with 650 top-rated restaurants across Baltimore, Boston, Hoboken, Philadelphia, and Providence. The company provides delivery and marketing services for award-winning ZAGAT-rated restaurants and national brands who typically don't deliver on their own, including P.F. Chang's, Pinkberry, and Panera Bread. All DASHED restaurants are found exclusively on foodler.com, a leading online ordering platform for local restaurants.
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list's history. "What surprises me, even though I know it's coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn't change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.
