Founded in 2013, Waitr has gained a foothold in the on-demand food ordering space. Its platform allows consumers to search for local restaurants, securely store their previous orders, and track their order status. The company partners with independent local restaurants and regional chains.
Waitr recently acquired food delivery service Bite Squad. The company is now one of the largest publically held companies in the United States.
