Bite Squad adds more restaurants in Conway for delivery

Bite Squad, an online and mobile food ordering and delivery service, has added more than 10 new restaurant partners in the Conway delivery area in recent months.

Customers can now order delivery from more than 45 of the area’s favorite restaurants, to their home or workplace.

“An incredible selection of quality restaurants to choose from is one of our big differentiators from other delivery services,” Bite Squad co-founder and CEO Kian Salehi said. “Great variety, along with affordability — there are options as low as $1.99 — has fueled our growth in the area.”

Among the new restaurants to join the Bite Squad delivery platform are: Sharks Fish and Chicken, Subway, Faby’s Restaurant, Café 501, John Daly’s Steakhouse, Patti Cakes, Roux’s Sports Grill, Chili’s, IHOP and CeCi’s Chicken and Waffles Plus More.

These new partners join delivery favorites like Naru of Conway, Stoby’s, Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom and TGI Friday’s.

Bite Squad has seen significant growth in the Conway market since arriving in May 2017. The company expects continued growth this year, alongside an ongoing effort to bring new restaurants onto their delivery platform in the area.

“Restaurants are increasingly looking to offer on-demand delivery as consumers seek more and more convenience,” Salehi said. “Partnering with Bite Squad allows them to reach a rapidly growing segment of the population that orders restaurant meals for delivery as an everyday part of life.”

Bite Squad is one of the fastest-growing delivery services in the nation.

The company currently partners with about 10,000 independent restaurants in more than 30 cities, delivering millions of orders across the United States.
