Special to the
Opelika Observer

Waitr’s widespread appeal in Alabama – and throughout the Southeast – has triggered the restaurant on-demand platform to expand its service to Auburn and Opelika. The delivery service officially launched in the area last Thursday. The Waitr app lets customers order from their favorite restaurant … then sends a Waitr driver to deliver it right to their door. Waitr is seen as the industry’s top food delivery service for customers and businesses alike.
Since launching in 2015, Waitr has quickly grown to serve more than 200 cities across the South, including the Alabama cities of Montgomery, Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Hoover, Mobile, Huntsville, Prattville and Madison. Waitr has also seen success in the nearby city of Columbus, Georgia. It currently boasts more than 5,000 restaurant partners and already has over one million users. Additionally, restaurants joining forces with Waitr see an average increase in overall business by 18 percent.
Dozens of Auburn and Opelika restaurants that have already signed with Waitr include Wild Wing Cafe, Hamilton’s, Momma Goldberg’s, El Patron, The Mason Jar, Rock N Roll Sushi, Newk’s Eatery, Gigi’s Cupcakes, and Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe. Many more are expected to be added in the coming weeks.
To celebrate Waitr’s Auburn and Opelika debut, anytime a customers use the app through Aug. 19, they can get their food delivered for free by using the promo code “THEPLAINS” at checkout.
“The Auburn and Opelika communities and restaurant owners saw the excitement and success of our food delivery in its nearby cities and wanted to be part of it,” said Whitney Savoie, Market Development Director for Waitr. “We’re thrilled we can now meet that demand here.”
Savoie says customers rave about how convenient Waitr is to use, as well as its more favorable pricing – specifically the $5 delivery flat fee with no minimum required or distance charge. 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.
Waitr’s appeal goes directly to those who don’t want to – or cannot – leave their home or office for their favorite restaurant meal.
In addition to its Alabama and Georgia cities, Waitr has proven to be wildly popular throughout Mississippi, Florida, Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina and Louisiana.
