Discover. Order. Eat.
A new food delivery service launching in Lufkin and Nacogdoches is offering a more affordable and convenient choice for those who don’t want to – or can’t – leave their home or office for their favorite restaurant meal. Waitr makes its official debut on May 30th in the two cities, creating new jobs and increasing business for local restaurants. The expansion into these cities was a direct result of the success Waitr is having in Tyler and Longview.
Waitr app lets you order from your choice of partnering restaurants … then sends a Waitr driver to deliver it to you for a flat fee of $5. Waitr’s flat fee on all orders with no minimum required or distance charge makes it stand out among its competitors. The company expects to hire 100 people in the area.
Waitr is a launch party at Sidelines Sports Bar & Grill in Nacogdoches (located at 3205 North University Drive) at 5 p.m. on May 30th.. The company is encouraging everyone to come out and be part of the festivities. Attendees at the free party can expect food, cold drinks and complimentary items to take home.
Waitr will also offer an introductory free delivery special for Lufkin and Nacogdoches – anytime you use the app through June 9, you can get your food delivered free by using the promo code “LONESTAR” at checkout.
