Minneapolis, MN, Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bite Squad, an on-demand restaurant delivery service, today announced it has added 100 new U.S. cities to its service area in 2018, and plans to add approximately 100 more this year. The recent additions expand the company’s national footprint to more than 300 cities. Bite Squad expects to serve over 400 cities, in 22 states, by the end of 2018.
“A major percentage of the largest U.S. cities are underserved when it comes to food delivery service,” said Bite Squad CEO and co-founder, Kian Salehi. “We’re thrilled to move into these areas where consumers want more access to food delivery and restaurants are ready for a strong partner in what is the fastest growing opportunity in the industry.”
Bite Squad’s 100-city expansion includes the acquisition of 13 regional restaurant delivery companies in Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Wisconsin, as well as organic market expansions in Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina, North Carolina and Minnesota. The growth follows the company’s acquisition of 17 local restaurant delivery companies in 2017.
“Our unique business model creates healthy unit economics, allowing us to grow and scale both rapidly and profitably,” said Salehi. “Unlike many companies in this space, we’re experiencing organic growth, funded by our own profits. Post-integration growth in acquired markets is explosive, and response in new, organic markets is strong.”
Operating since 2012, Bite Squad distinguishes itself in the on-demand delivery space with its technology, built for both massive scale and end-to-end service, as well as its W-2 employee driver model. Unlike most food delivery companies that use independent contractors, Bite Squad drivers are employees, allowing for long-term benefits such as driver retention, quality control and customer satisfaction. The company currently employs more than 5,000 drivers nationwide.
