One of Vermont's fastest-growing tech companies has a new majority owner. Silicon Valley equity firm HGGC has acquired Winooski-based MyWebGrocer — the New York Times reported the news today on its DealBook blog; the company also distributed a press release.

In an interview in his Champlain Mill office overlooking the Winooski River, CEO and co-founder Rich Tarrant Jr., confirmed that HGGC has invested "a great deal of money" in his online grocery biz. "They are firm believers that we are on the right track,” he said. Tarrant declined to disclose the terms, but DealBook wrote that sources close to the deal confirmed it was within the $25 to $100 million range.
