Waitr Holdings Inc., a provider of on-demand food ordering and delivery, announced a new partnership with PDQ restaurants. Effectively immediately, Waitr and Bite Squad will offer delivery from PDQ in select Florida markets.

The new agreement with PDQ is the latest addition to a growing list of national restaurants that are now available on the Waitr delivery platform. The Company has also recently completed integrations with several of the country’s top delivery management and optimization platforms – providing its restaurant partners with the opportunity to increase order accuracy, efficiency, reach and revenue.

PDQ is known for its award-winning fresh chicken tenders, hand-crafted chicken sandwiches, signature sauces and hand-spun shakes. And just last month, PDQ introduced a new Spicy Chicken Sandwich and Spicy Nuggets for a limited time.

In addition to providing great food, Waitr and PDQ both share the same the sense of community, being heavily involved in assisting the areas they serve. Waitr and PDQ have each been involved with the Second Harvest Food Bank. PDQ donated $20,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida last October, while Waitr worked with the Louisiana Second Harvest Food Bank in Lafayette and New Orleans on a Holiday Food Drive that resulted in the delivery of 1,200 meals to those in need and a $10,000 check from Waitr to the food bank.

“PDQ shares our values at Waitr; they understand how important it is to give back to the communities that support them,” said Carl Grimstad, CEO and Chairman of Waitr. “It’s this philosophy, not to mention PDQ being one of the top restaurant chains in Florida, that makes this such an exciting, symbiotic business relationship.”
