Waitr Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: WTRH) (“Waitr” or the “Company”), a leader in on-demand food ordering and delivery, today announced that the Company has expanded into same day grocery delivery in Baton Rouge, Lafayette and Lake Charles, Louisiana, with more cities to come in the near future. In Baton Rouge, Waitr has partnered with Ralph’s Market to help deliver grocery essentials to residents. Customers can shop on the Waitr app, or at waitrapp.com, by searching Ralph’s Market for basic grocery items such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and personal care products, as well as freshly stocked meat and produce. Waitr is providing personal shoppers, in addition to delivery drivers, to help fulfill grocery orders from Ralph’s Market. Waitr is also offering a no-contact delivery option for grocery just like they do with restaurant deliveries, which allows for distancing between customers and delivery drivers.
“In such a time of need, we felt like it is our duty to utilize our platform in any way possible to support the Baton Rouge community and plan to support more communities like this in the very near future,” said Carl Grimstad, CEO of Waitr. “We want to be a valuable resource for our local communities during these tough times. Like I’ve said before, if there is anything we can do to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our partners, employees and community, we will do it.”
