When it comes to fast food, the concept of “now” is evolving. With the popularity of instantaneous services, especially in the food and retail industry, food delivery services are sprouting up all across the country and this is also the case in Athens.
Beginning with Bulldawg Food, which caters mostly to students, and welcoming Uber Eats and Grubhub, the market for fast, convenient food delivery is certainly in high demand around Athens.
Waitr, a new restaurant on-demand platform, is making its debut in the Athens food community on June 21.
What makes Waitr unique from other delivery services is its no minimum order requirements or distance charge, as reported in The Red & Black.
According to a press release, Waitr is expected to grow quickly in Athens and is planning to hire 150 people in the area.
Waitr is currently hiring drivers in Athens through their website. Athens is the fifth city that Waitr has set up in throughout Georgia, in addition to Augusta, Macon, Columbus and Savannah.
Waitr is also available in other states including Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, and Texas.
Restaurants around town have come on board with Waitr services, including Akademia Brewing Company, Hendershots, Your Pie, Mellow Mushroom, Dawg Gone Good BBQ, Pouch Pies and Champy’s Famous Fried Chicken.
It is anticipated that more will join in the coming weeks, according to a press release.
The company will be hosting a launch party tomorrow at Mellow Mushroom on East Clayton Street at 8 p.m. The night will consist of a special Waitr trivia competition with a $200 first place prize. Other free prizes will be offered too.
