SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The food delivery service Waitr makes its debut in Savannah on Thursday, April 26.

The Waitr app lets you order from your favorite Savannah restaurant, then sends a Waitr driver to deliver it to you for a flat fee of $5.

Savannah is the fourth city in Georgia to get Waitr, and to meet the anticipated demand, the company expects to hire 150 people in the area. Drivers can apply online here.

The company says more than 30 Savannah restaurants have already partnered with Waitr, including PJ's Corner, Rancho Alegre Cuban Restaurant, Noble Fare, The Howlin Hound, Loc's Chicken & Waffles, Hooters, Sweet Melissa's, Dickey's Barbecue, Wasabi's Downtown, Tangerine Fusion & Sushi Bar, Loc's Chicken & Waffles and Seasons of Japan. Many more are expected to be added in the coming weeks.

To celebrate Waitr's Savannah-area debut, the company will be hosting a launch party on Thursday at Castaways (7360 Skidaway Rd, Savannah) starting at 5 p.m. Waitr is encouraging everyone to come out and be part of the city's launch and meet the local team. Attendees can expect tasty appetizers, cold drinks and cool swag items to take with them.
