The restaurant food delivery service Waitr is now available – officially launching in the city today. Not only is Waitr providing a new way to get food, the company is bringing 100 jobs to the area.
Waitr will host a launch party at The Landing Restaurant & Bar (530 Front Street) in Natchitoches today (Sept. 19) from 5-8 p.m.
Waitr’s success in Alexandria led to the decision to expand. “Our customers in Alexandria have been so loyal to Waitr, it has enabled us not only to expand into Natchitoches, but also significantly grow our delivery selection in the area,” said Whitney Savoie, Market Development Director for Waitr. The city of Alexandria now has more 70 restaurant partners from which to choose.
Restaurants in the Natchitoches area that have already signed up with Waitr include Cane Rio Café, Southern Classic Chicken, Front Street Marketplace, Louisiana Purchase, The Landing Restaurant & Bar, Morning Star Donuts & Café, Shop-A-Lott on South Drive, University Drive and Highway 3175, Sonny Donuts, Lasyone’s Meat Pie Restaurant, Pioneer Pub, Hana Steakhouse Seafood and Sushi, Donut Hole and French Market Express.
