October 2017

Crain's New York Business ranks Zeel No. 13 on its annual 2017 list of the New York City metro area's fastest-growing companies — the Fast 50. Zeel, the Massage On Demand® company and first to bring same-day, in-home massages to customers in 2012, is also recognized on Crain's distinguished Best Places To Work in NYC list this year.

"We're delighted to be recognized with these prestigious awards from Crain's," says Zeel founder and CEO Samer Hamadeh. "Our commitment to delivering on-demand massage therapy — and all of its health and wellness benefits — is reflected in Zeel's growth. Moreover, by embracing our values, including innovation, transparency, and quality, we have created a culture that makes Zeel a rewarding workplace for our employees."

The Fast 50 highlights the area's most innovative companies, their winning business strategies, and most importantly, their rapid revenue growth. Companies such as Blue Apron, S'well, and Peloton are also recognized on this year's Fast 50 list.

The Best Places to Work list features companies with the best corporate policies and cultures, and evaluates each one based on employer-provided information about company policies and practices, as well as feedback from employees themselves. Employees at Zeel enjoy unlimited paid time off, free massages in the headquarters' massage room, and milestone celebrations, among other benefits. Zeel is joined by companies like ZocDoc, Bonobos, and Poppin on this year's Best Places to Work list.

With Zeel, customers can order massages delivered directly to homes, hotels, workplaces, and events in more than 65 U.S. cities on the Zeel app or on To book, customers select their preferences, including the time, duration, and location for the massage; the preferred gender of the licensed, vetted, and insured massage therapist; and the desired massage technique. Swedish, deep tissue, sports, prenatal, couples, and sleep massages can be scheduled for start times as early as 8am and as late as 10:30pm, 365 days a year.
