Waitr Launches in Lufkin and Nacogdoches

For Immediate Release


Waitr Debuts - Brings Food from Lufkin and Nacogdoches

Restaurants Right to Your Door

Popular Food Delivery App to Provide 100 New Area Jobs 


Lufkin/Nacogdoches, TX – A food delivery app that has proven to be popular in Texas and throughout the Gulf States has expanded its service to Lufkin and Nacogdoches. Waitr, the restaurant on-demand platform, debuts this week with the official launch set for Thursday, May 30. The Waitr app lets you order from your favorite local restaurant … then sends a Waitr driver to deliver it to you for a flat fee of $5.


Waitr expects to grow quickly in Lufkin and Nacogdoches, matching the response from cities recently introduced to the app. To meet anticipated demand, the company plans to hire 100 people in the area. Waitr will kick off its debut in Lufkin and Nacogdoches with special free delivery – anytime you use the app through June 9, you can get your food delivered free by using the promo code “LONESTAR” at checkout.


Lufkin and Nacogdoches are just the latest Waitr cities in Texas. The service is available in more than 250 cities in 16 states, including nearby Tyler, Longview and Beaumont.  The app also serves the Texas cities of Houston, Amarillo, Waco, Temple, Killeen, Corpus Christi, Victoria, Galveston, Midland and San Angelo.


The app’s appeal goes directly to those who don’t want to – or cannot – leave their home or office for their favorite restaurant meal. The flat fee on all orders regardless of order size or the customer’s distance from the restaurant makes Waitr stand out among its competitors.

“From live monitoring of deliveries yielding faster door-to-door service to the unique ability to provide full-color photography of every menu item from all participating restaurants, Waitr is seen as a leader in on-demand food ordering and delivery for customers and businesses,” said Whitney Savoie, Market Development Director for Waitr.


To celebrate its area debut, Waitr will be hosting a launch party in both cities. Fuzzy’s Taco Shop (4003 South Medford Drive) will host Lufkin’s party, Wednesday May 29 at 5:00pm. The Nacogdoches celebration will be at Sidelines Sports Bar & Grill (3205 North University Drive) on Thursday, May 30 at 5:00pm. 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.


The Waitr app is simple to use. After creating an account, you choose a restaurant, browse the fully customizable menu, select your items and tap to submit the order with a credit card. The app can also be used for carryout orders at no charge. In addition, ordering is also available via the Web at waitrapp.com.
