NFL’s Drew Brees backs Waitr to make takeout easy in anytown USA | TechCrunch: "Food delivery startups abound in the U.S., but few of them deliver to customers in “second cities” and smaller towns. From early pioneers like Grubhub to newer services like DoorDash, food delivery businesses have tended to focus on urban areas with a high concentration of restaurants and people who frequently order takeout.
Now, New Orleans Saints Quarterback, philanthropist and angel investor Drew Brees is backing a startup called Waitr to make takeout more convenient outside of the biggest cities. Waitr, which is based in Lake Charles and Lafayette, Louisiana, has been delivering food from restaurants to customers’ homes since 2014 in places like Lafayette, New Orleans, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Sacramento, California and Beaumont, Texas."
