Popular food delivery app Waitr bringing jobs to Virginia city

Good News

Popular food delivery app Waitr is launching in Lynchburg on Thursday, May 2. 

Waitr lets residents order from restaurants and a delivery driver brings the food to their doorstep for a $5 flat fee. The app can also be used for carryout orders. Anyone that chooses carryout will have no charge. 

The app was founded in Lake Charles, Louisiana in 2015 with a mission goal of developing local food culture for communities. 

Thursday’s launch is expected to create 100 jobs for the City of Lynchburg. 

As part of the app’s launch, residents will get free deliveries through May 12 using the promo code “LYNCHBURG.”
