St. John the Baptist Parish - Waitr, the mobile device application that facilitates meal delivery from restaurants, has expanded to LaPlace and Reserve.
Through the mobile APP, LaPlace and Reserve residents can browse menus and place their orders to participating restaurants. Once an order is placed, a Waitr driver delivers the food for a flat fee of $5. To use the food delivery service, an account must be created and payments made through credit or debit cards.
Participating restaurants include Petra, ZoraChristina Catering and Café, Frenier Landing Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Akari Hibachi & Sushi, Sam’s Southern Eatery, El Paso Mexican Grill, Jacob’s Andouille, Bailey’s Andouille, Clay’s Café, Louisiana Roadhouse, Dunkin Donuts, IHop, Los New Molcajetes and Rotolo’s Pizzeria. Additional businesses are expected to join the service soon including Belle Terre Country Club.
According to Waitr, the $5 fee is the same no matter the distance from the restaurant or whether one meal is ordered or 20. Launched in Lake Charles four years ago, Waitr is also available in New Orleans and other areas in Louisiana.
The APP is anticipated to expand to other areas of St. John Parish in the upcoming months. Anyone interested in becoming a driver for Waitr can apply at https://waitrapp.com/become-a-driver.
