Waitr Expands To Outside Chattanooga City Limits

Thursday, October 18, 2018

Waitr’s success in Chattanooga has prompted significant growth – delivery service now extends outside the city. In addition to Chattanooga, Waitr is now delivering to the Lookout Mountain area, and also just east of the city toward the Ooltewah and East Brainerd communities. The Waitr app lets you order from your favorite restaurant … then sends a Waitr driver to deliver it to you for a flat fee of $5.

 

Waitr has also announced more than 90 restaurants are using the service.

Recent additions include DosBros Fresh Mexican Grill, Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant, Julie Darling Donuts, Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, Innside Restaurant, Mindy B’s Deli, Formosa, Jefferson’s and Chicken Salad Chick. 

 

Waitr will be celebrating its success in the area with a special free delivery promotion and a party. Anytime you use the app through Oct. 28, you can get your food delivered free by using the promo code “NOOGA” at checkout. It will also be hosting a “Waitr Night” party at Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant today, Oct. 18, at 5 p.m. Puckett’s is at 1041 West Aquarium Way in Chattanooga. Attendees at the free party can expect tasty appetizers, cold drinks and cool “swag” items to take home with them.

 

Foster Yates of Puckett’s Grocery said the service Waitr provides has been a welcome addition to his store. “The app has brought more attention and awareness of the restaurant. And the values and morals of the company and the drivers match the morals and the values of Puckett’s.”

 

“We’re very proud to be part of the Chattanooga community and are thrilled to keep adding service to the surrounding areas” said Whitney Savoie, Market Development director for Waitr. “From Chattanooga to Lookout Mountain to Ooltewah and East Brainerd, Waitr is here for everyone.”

 

Savoie adds customers rave about how convenient Waitr is to use, as well as its more favorable pricing – specifically the $5 delivery flat fee. In addition, menu prices are the same on the app as they are at the restaurants. Other unique, practical features include live monitoring of deliveries and full-color photography of every menu item.
