Waitr, an app that allows for users to order delivery and carryout from their favorite local restaurants, has only recently come to Hope a few months ago but is already improving business according to the local restaurants on the app.
Ervin Abdullah, owner of Hiro Hiro, has been very impressed with the Waitr app so far.
“Waitr makes an effort to increase the sales,” Abdullah said. “What I like about Waitr is that they have that personal touch. The person comes in my restaurant, we talk sometimes and if there’s a problem they try to find a solution.”
Tab’s Diner owner says she loves the convenience Waitr brings to their customers.
“We’ve actually got quite a bit more business with it,” she said. “It keeps people from having to get out of their home and they can watch their movies and stuff while they have their food delivered to their door. To me that’s a very positive thing. It’s taken a lot of stress off of our customers having to worry about gas and traffic.”
Marie Kavin from Big Jake’s BBQ says that taking orders from the Waitr app is much easier than having to take call-in orders.
“It just beats the call-in,” she said. “Our business is so busy, but when we get those Waitr orders we can just look on the screen and get it ready for them.”
Hebrews 11:1 owner, Arnetta Bradford, says that Waitr has brought in a lot more business to her local business.
“It has brought in more sales,” she said. “It’s brought in more traffic and just made it easier to serve the community better.”
The Waitr app is available to download on any app store and includes the restaurants mentioned above as well as Sheba’s, Cuzzin Ed’s BBQ, and Chicken Express who were not available to comment.
