Bite Squad is expanding its delivery service to Woodbury and Oakdale.
Customers in the two suburbs will be able to order from 20 newly-added restaurants in their area. And until April 14, anyone in either city who places an order using the code "unlimited" earns a free membership to Bite Squad Unlimited: for a year, delivery fees on orders from restaurants within a 4-mile radius will be waived.
The Twin Cities-based company has decided to focus its growth over the past year on the suburbs, bringing its app-based approach to food delivery to more than 15 area cities.
But until now, Bite Squad delivery only extended into the east metro as far as Maplewood.
"There's a phenomenal restaurant scene in Woodbury, in Oakdale ... so it made a lot of sense for us to service those great restaurants," chief marketing officer Craig Key said.
There are many great choices in the area when it comes to eating out, Key said, but very few when it comes to food delivery.
"We're just excited to give folks in Woodbury and Oakdale a new option," he said.
There will be 20 restaurants to start out, but Key expects Bite Squad will add five to 10 more within the next few months.
Restaurants in Woodbury and Oakdale currently available for Bite Squad delivery include: Bambu Kitchen and Sushi Bar, Cravings Wine Bar & Grille, Dino's Gyros, Machete Cocina Mexicana, CRAVE, Jersey Mike's Subs, Wayback Burgers, Duck Donuts, Lakes Tavern & Grill, Wild Orchid, Ze's Diner, India Palace, Quizno's, and Ray J's.
