Waitr, a premier mobile app providing on-demand restaurant ordering, delivery and carryout, on Tuesday, Dec. 6 announced a multi-year partnership as the Official Food Delivery Service App of the New Orleans Saints. This relationship brings together two beloved Louisiana brands.
The partnership complements the significant growth already established by Waitr along the Gulf Coast with more than 1,200 restaurants in Waitr's network now available to hungry fans.
"The alignment of the New Orleans Saints and Waitr is a match made in heaven," said Sonny Mayugba, chief marketing officer of Waitr. "The Saints Nation is among the most passionate and loyal fans in the NFL. We see that same passion and loyalty from Waitr fans. The Gulf South and Louisiana are the food capital of the world and this partnership will allow us to combine two of Louisiana's favorite past times – sharing great food and football. We could not be prouder than to have Waitr as the official food delivery app of the Saints."
The partnership truly integrates the two brands. Waitr is featured throughout the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and New Orleans Saints mobile site and mobile app. Fans can meet GUMBO the Mascot in select Waitr restaurant partner locations around New Orleans. In addition, fans of both brands could be surprised when a star player performs a "Surprise Waitr Delivery" showing up at their location with a Waitr order.
"We believe that Waitr is an outstanding app that instantly connects our fans with hundreds of great restaurants that Louisiana is known for," said Saints Senior Vice President of Sales Michael Stanfield. "Waitr is a Louisiana-born brand that is rapidly changing the way food is delivered to customers and we're proud to partner with them in their incredibly impressive growth."
Waitr is among the fastest growing and most innovative on-demand food app companies in the U.S., and stays committed to helping restaurant operators grow their business by providing powerful data and technology to reach new customers. With more than 1,200 restaurants in the network and hundreds of thousands of users on the platform, Waitr is uniquely positioned to help restaurants expand their business and deliver the best experience to the consumer. Partnering with a marquee brand like the New Orleans Saints in Waitr's home state will enrich the overall fan experience of getting great food and watching great football.
