Bite Squad, which was founded in Minneapolis and acquired by Louisiana-based Waitr, has added breakfast service for individual and small group orders in its home market. Breakfast will be delivered every day starting at 8 a.m. The expanding morning delivery services, launched on Tuesday, April 16, and it’s the second Bite Squad market in the country to offer this new option.
“We see breakfast delivery as a considerable growth opportunity,” said Liz Sniegocki, a Bite Squad spokeswoman. “Following a successful beta in Gainesville earlier this month, we’re planning a phase 2 of breakfast rollouts in additional markets over the next 90 days.”
In a press release, Bite Squad Chief Operating Officer Kyle Hale said adding breakfast delivery for individuals and corporate catering creates a new level of convenience for its customers, as well as a new revenue stream for restaurant partners.
A restaurant partner who expects an increase to its business is Gary Rackner, owner of Bunny’s Bar & Grill in the Twin Cities market. “I know a lot of people skip breakfast because of time,” he said, “and the convenience of being able to easily order a hot meal, and have it delivered, helps solve that time-crunch issue.
According to Hale, the Minneapolis market yields a strong catering presence and busy weekday lunch rushes. Bite Squad previously offered breakfast catering in the Twin Cities with advance notice, but on-demand breakfast delivery for individual orders is new.
