“We view these acquisitions as an important step in pursuing this strategy and we believe this could lead to significant growth for Waitr in the future.”

The financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.

In March, Waitr signed a definitive agreement to acquire all of the assets of food delivery company Delivery Dudes, based in Florida, US. Waitr agreed to pay $23m in stock and cash for the purchase.

Founded in 2009, Delivery Dudes has operations in more than 50 cities, mainly in South Florida.

The acquisition will enable Waitr to scale up its operations in the state, where it already has a presence in eight markets.
