Founded in 2014 by Ray Reddy, CEO, Ritual provides an order ahead app that connects restaurants with customers to offer a time saving tool to place, pay for and pick-up lunch orders for themselves and their workplace teams. The company’s rapid growth is largely driven by workplace teams adopting its social ordering and delivery feature Piggyback. Upon signing up for Ritual, Piggyback connects users with teams based on workplace and location, creating a dynamic social element to ordering and picking up lunch, which is often an otherwise individual experience. Ritual is currently available online and via iOS and Android apps in major metro markets, including Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Washington, D.C., and Toronto.
