WAUSAU – EatStreet, the Wisconsin-based national food ordering and delivery company, is launching its restaurant delivery service in Wausau this week as it kicks off the next round of its Haulin’ Ass for Hunger Tour.
EatStreet will launch delivery for more than 20 popular Wausau restaurants, including favorites such as 2510 Restaurant, Sam’s Pizza and Basil, with plans to add more restaurants each week.
Additionally, this expansion is expected to create 50-80 new jobs in Wausau. Anyone interested in delivery driver positions with EatStreet can apply online.
As part of the launch, new EatStreet customers can get free delivery. Customers can identify restaurants that offer free delivery by looking for a green car icon next to the restaurants on EatStreet’s app and website.
“We strive to be the homegrown Wisconsin company that brings our neighbors exceptional restaurant selection and fast, professional delivery,” said Matt Howard, CEO and co-founder of EatStreet. “From our in-app order tracker to live customer support, we’re working to bring a level of service that exceeds standards for both customers and restaurants as we invest in, and join, the community.”
Part of that community investment includes giving back to families in need in Wausau. As part of the Haulin’ Ass for Hunger tour, EatStreet brings financial support to local food pantries in each Wisconsin market they serve.
This week, EatStreet will donate $2,000 and volunteer time to The Neighbors’ Place, a community center and food pantry that serves Wausau and Marathon County. As the largest food bank in Marathon County, The Neighbors’ Place has capacity to store and distribute food for 20 food pantries throughout the county.
Since kicking off the tour, EatStreet has provided more than $24,000 in donations to Wisconsin food pantries.
EatStreet has continued to grow rapidly over the past several years, including a significant expansion in Wisconsin over recent months. Along with Wausau, EatStreet offers delivery in Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh, Eau Claire, La Crosse and Janesville.
