October 30, 2019 GMT

LAFAYETTE, La., Oct. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Waitr, a leading on-demand restaurant delivery service, today announced a partnership with Checkers & Rally’s Restaurants, Inc. Together with recently acquired food delivery company, Bite Squad, Waitr will bring customers’ favorite classic menu items to the comforts of their home.

“We’re thrilled to add Checkers & Rally’s to our growing list of national restaurant partners,” said Zach Morgan, Director of National Accounts at Waitr. “We want to provide our customers with a wide variety of options, so they can always have the food they’re craving delivered from their favorite restaurants.”

Waitr and Bite Squad will soon deliver from more than 200 Checkers and Rally’s locations, beginning with 54 Bite Squad markets across Florida, Arkansas and Ohio, available now.

“We are excited to partner with Bite Squad and Waitr, bringing their services to many of our company and franchise locations in 2019 and 2020,” said Checkers & Rally’s Director of eCommerce Josh Buchmann. “This partnership has made it possible for us to scale quickly, and will play a strategic role in building strong delivery sales for our Gulf Coast markets, as well as many other markets across the country.”

Checkers and Rally’s are the apps’ first restaurant partners to fully utilize the digital food ordering platform Olo Rails, which ensures a seamless operator experience from order to delivery. Waitr announced its partnership with the platform in August 2019.
