Foodler CEO Christian Dumontet Named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year™ 2016 Award Finalist

Restaurant Technology Pioneer Recognized for Order and Delivery

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Foodler, one of America’s fastest growing online ordering and delivery
services that bridges the gap between consumers and restaurants, has
announced that Christian Dumontet, Foodler chief executive officer, was
named a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2016
Award. Founded to inspire entrepreneurism, the award recognizes
individuals who display commitment and innovation in all areas of their
business ventures.

Without any outside backing and utilizing servers stored in his
basement, Dumontet co-founded Foodler in 2004, working around the clock
to build the platform. The Boston native’s company now has more than 100
employees nationwide and the service now smoothly coordinates millions
of delivery orders annually. Through its one-of-a-kind rewards program
and the ability to deliver ratings and food recommendations down to the
ingredient level through proprietary software designed by Dumontet,
Foodler has reached an annual growth rate of 30 percent. That figure
jumps to 80 percent in new markets the app has entered over the last two
years. Foodler is now adding over 100 new restaurants to its platform
every month and has over 15,000 restaurants in 48 states and Canada.

“From the start, my goal has been the creation of a superior,
user-friendly experience that is constantly evolving to fit the needs of
both diners and restaurants,” Dumontet said. “We are meeting those needs
by creating stronger connections through convenience. But, we pride
ourselves on also breaking new ground in the process, through features
like our unique recommendations and rewards systems. This nomination
from Ernst & Young provides immense validation for the work we have done
and inspires us to continue the devotion to our goals for years to come.”

Now in its 30th year, the EY Entrepreneur of Year program has expanded
to honor business innovators in more than 145 cities in more than 60
countries throughout the world. Regional award winners are also eligible
