“The alignment of the New Orleans Saints and Waitr is a match made in heaven,” says Sonny Mayugba, chief marketing officer of Waitr, in a press release announcing the deal. “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.”
Just six months ago, at ABiz’s annual State of the Economy luncheon, Waitr founder Chris Meaux announced plans to develop a 100-job technology operations center in Lafayette for his software company.
