From Louisiana, a brand new business graces the busy streets of Valdosta, GA.
A food delivery business in the palm of your hands, Waitr is a new online service that allows you to bring the restaurants of Valdosta to your front door, all for the flat fee of $5, no matter the distance or size of the order.
After its success in Albany, GA and other Southern states in general, Waitr has begun to meet with the many different businesses of Valdosta to begin its various partnerships.
Restuarants already working with Waitr include Big Nick’s, Chick-fil-A, Hooters, Rico’s Tacos, Great American Cookies, Pizza Quick, The Mix, The Front Porch, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Chicago Fire Dogs, Passage 2 India, Burritos Mexican Grill, Hug In A Mug, Taste of the Island, Ella’s Top Corral, Jessie’s Restaurant & Cooking, Firehouse Subs, and many more.
That list doesn’t include those coming soon, such as Nette’s Eatery, Mama June’s Home Cookin’, and The Beanery.
Waitr is a simple to use app that, after making an account, provides you with a fully photographed menu of the provided restaurants. You simply select what you want, submit the order with a credit/debit card, and wait for your meal to arrive.
For VSU students, Waitr has already begun making plans to have a close relationship with VSU administration.
Also, as Waitr begins to take root in Valdosta, it begins its search for 100 new employees to fill both part-time and full-time jobs as delivery personnel.
An invaluable opportunity for those seeking flexible work and pay that won’t come at the cost of class time or extracurricular activities.
“We have part-time jobs and full-time jobs for a variety of people. For those who need it, such as students, we aim to provide a flexible experience,” said Lauren Pitre, Launch Manager at Waitr.
