Bite Squad—a third-party delivery platform that’s a subsidiary of Waitr—is back in growth mode, according to various news reports, as it looks to add hundreds of new drivers in key markets, along with new executive team members and expanding its delivery service in Oahu, a critical market for the brand.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal first reported that Bite Squad is adding 500 new drivers, which would be a more than 70 percent increase of its Twin Cities fleet.

Following a brutal 2019 for parent company Waitr, the Louisiana-based delivery provider with a focus on smaller, less urban markets has continued expanding into new cities and grown delivery areas. Managerial staffing changes have come as the parent company appears to have steered itself into comparatively calmer waters.

The company appointed Mark D’Ambrosio chief sales officer, David Cronin chief engagement officer and Thomas Pritchard general counsel.

Welcoming the three to the team, Carl Grimstad, Chairman and CEO of Waitr, said, “We are tapping these three highly experienced leaders to accelerate value creation in the key areas of sales, HR and regulatory/legal advice.”
