Zeel Named To Entrepreneur 360

December 2017

Zeel, creator of the Massage On Demand® category and the first company to deliver same-day, in-home massages to customers, today announced it ranked No. 87 on the third annual Entrepreneur 360, Entrepreneur magazine's list of the 360 "Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America." Zeel is honored for its innovation and technology, management efficiency and business sustainability, and revenue.
"The Zeel team is proud to be recognized with such an esteemed distinction," says Zeel founder and CEO Samer Hamadeh. "We're the trailblazers in what is now a competitive segment in the massage industry, and what sets us apart, and makes us award-winning, is our commitment to service, quality, security, and reliability. Massage at home and in hotels was just the beginning. We believe in Powering Massage Everywhere® and now offer staffing solutions for spas and wellness programs for corporations. It's an exciting time in the technology-enabled wellness space."

Honorees were identified based on the results of a comprehensive study of independently owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure four metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship — innovation, growth, leadership, and impact.

Zeel is recognized for pioneering the same-day, in-home massage category. With Zeel, customers can order a soothing massage through the Zeel app or on zeel.com – delivered directly to homes, hotels, workplaces, and events in more than 75 U.S. cities. Customers can choose the time, length, and location for the massage; the preferred gender of the massage therapist; and a massage technique ranging from Swedish to deep tissue, sports, prenatal, couples, and sleep massage. On-demand massages can be scheduled to start as early as 8am and as late as 10:30pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Contributions to Zeel's entrepreneurial recognition include an award-winning staffing solution for spas with Zeel Spa℠; a platform for hotels to provide in-room massages with Zeel Concierge®; and in-office massages with Zeel Corporate Wellness.
