Waitr Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: WTRH) (“Waitr” or the “Company”), a leader in on-demand food ordering and delivery, announced today a new national partnership with Denny’s Corporation (NASDAQ: DENN), adding one of America's largest franchised full-service restaurant chains to its delivery platform.
Under the agreement, Waitr, along with Bite Squad and Delivery Dudes, will deliver from nearly 400 Denny’s locations from Florida to Hawaii. In addition to Denny’s, guests can order from the brand’s new virtual brand The Burger Den.
The debut of Denny’s expands Waitr’s delivery options, as the popular app accelerates the promise to connect customers with their favorite foods, while at the same time implementing several initiatives designed for increasing customer and restaurant service.
Waitr expanded its delivery reach in many of its top regions by launching in more than 70 new underserved cities and towns, extending delivery hours, and increasing its delivery zones. These moves give customers more time to order and more choices; restaurants the opportunity for more orders; and drivers the opportunity to make more money.
“The addition of Denny’s creates yet a new level of convenience for our customers looking for their favorites, especially an early-morning meal,” said Carl Grimstad, CEO and Chairman of Waitr. “We have moved up start times for delivery to serve those looking for breakfast and are also staying open longer for the late-night crowd.”
“Through this new partnership with Waitr, we are increasing guest access to our delicious menu items across all dayparts,” said John Dillon, EVP and Chief Brand Officer of Denny’s. “So whether guests want delicious made-to-order meals from Denny’s or craveable burgers and milkshakes from The Burger Den, our partnership with Waitr further enables our guests to get whatever they want whenever and wherever they prefer.
