Waitr announces expansion to Natchitoches


NATCHITOCHES, La. (Waitr) - Waitr, a leading on-demand restaurant delivery service, announced it will launch in another local community this week with its expansion into Natchitoches, Louisiana.

The food delivery app makes its debut this week in the city, with the official launch party set for Thursday, September 19.

The company’s success in Alexandria prompted the decision to expand into Natchitoches. To date, Waitr currently has more than 70 restaurant partners in Alexandria, up from 25 when it debuted there in 2017.

Waitr will bring 100 new jobs to Natchitoches, as well as a locally-based managerial staff. Waitr’s on-the-ground teams are a key differentiator from its competitors, as its focus is on servicing small to mid-size communities. With the launch into Natchitoches, Waitr now services much of the state of Louisiana, including Alexandria, Shreveport, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Shreveport, New Orleans, Monroe, Hammond, Houma and Thibodaux.

Waitr is offering delivery from a variety of Natchitoches-area restaurants, including 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 & Sushi, Donut Hole, and French Market Express.

“We’re very proud to be part of this community and thrilled Waitr has become a fixture in so much of this area,” said Whitney Savoie, Market Development Director for Waitr. “From our initial launch in Alexandria two years ago to this week in Natchitoches, customers and businesses alike see Waitr as their choice for on-demand food ordering and delivery.”

To celebrate its debut, Waitr will be hosting a launch party at The Landing Restaurant & Bar (530 Front Street) in Natchitoches, on Thursday, September 19 from 5:00pm-8:00pm. Waitr is encouraging everyone to come out and be part of the city’s launch and meet the local team. Attendees at the free party can expect tasty appetizers, cold drinks and cool “swag” items to take home with them.
