ezCater, a Boston, MA-based web marketplace that helps people discover and order from local caterers everywhere in the U.S., has raised $630K in seed funding.
Investors include Spinnaker Trust, Jill Preotle (Director and early investor at ZipCar and TaskRabbit), Mike Masterson (serial entrepreneur, including co-founder and Director at Oak/Kleiner-backed Sundrop Fuels), Ed Belove (former VP of R&D at Lotus and at AT&T), and members of Walnut Venture Associates.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its sales and marketing efforts.
Co-founded by CEO Stefania Nappi Mallett and President Briscoe Rodgers, ezCater’s nationwide catering marketplace sells delivered food for corporate events and private parties of roughly 10 to 150 guests.
The site combines reviews, ratings, and menus that help customers discover local caterers, and order online with confidence.
