Inc. Magazine Names Zeel One Of America's Fastest-Growing Companies

Inc. Magazine today named Zeel, the Massage On Demand® company and leading provider of same-day, in-home massages, No. 167 on its annual Inc. 5000 – the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This ranking lands Zeel on the elite Inc. 500 leaderboard. Zeel is also featured as one of the top 10 companies in the Consumer Products + Services category.

The list represents the most successful private companies in the U.S. Other companies named on the Inc. 500 list this year include S'well, FabFitFun, and Orangetheory Fitness. Companies such as LinkedIn, Yelp, Microsoft, Zappos, and many well-known others gained exposure as honorees of past Inc. 5000 awards.

"It's an incredible honor to be included on the distinguished Inc. 500 list," says Zeel founder and CEO Samer Hamadeh. "This recognition is a true display of Zeel's innovation, dedication, and commitment to delivering massages efficiently and at the highest quality level. We couldn't have achieved this award-winning growth without our Zeel Massage Therapists, customers, investors, and the entire Zeel team."

Zeel delivers on-demand massages directly to customers in homes, hotels, workplaces, and events in over 65 U.S. cities, and plans to continue its rapid expansion and growth throughout 2017 and beyond. Zeel Massages can be booked on the Zeel app for iPhone or Android, or on zeel.com, for start times as early as 8am and as late as 10:30pm, 365 days a year. Customers select their desired preferences, including the time, duration, and location for the massage; the preferred gender of the massage therapist; and the desired massage technique. Zeel's all-star massage therapists are licensed in their state of practice, experienced, and vetted in person.

"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them."

In addition to providing massages to customers in homes, Zeel also offers a revolutionary staffing solution for spas with Zeel Spa®; a platform for hotels to provide in-room massages with Zeel Concierge®; and in-office chair massages with Zeel Corporate Wellness. That's how Zeel is Powering Massage Everywhere®.
