Waitr launching restaurant food delivery service in Aiken

November 13, 2018

Waitr, an on-demand restaurant food delivery service, is making its debut in Aiken.

A launch party will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday at Willie Jewell’s Old School Bar-B-Q at 1376 Whiskey Road. Appetizers and cold drinks will be served, and “swag” items will be given to attendees.

The success of Waitr in Augusta and throughout the South is the reason for the expansion to Aiken, according to a press release issued Monday.

Restaurant orders can be placed through the Waitr app, and then Waitr drivers deliver them.

The cost is $5 per delivery.

Through Nov. 25, there will be a special offer for free delivery for app users that enter the promo code “AIKEN” at checkout.

In addition to Willie Jewell’s, restaurants in Aiken that have signed up with Waitr include Sonic, Maria’s Mexican Restaurant, Krystal, Firehouse Subs, Diablo’s Southwest Grill, Fatz Southern Kitchen, Ferrando’s Italian Pizzeria, Margarita’s Mexican Restaurant, Mellow Mushroom, Shane’s Rib Shack, and Jersey Mike’s Subs.

The Waitr app is available for iPhone and Android devices, and orders also can be placed online at Waitrapp.com.
