Waitr Acquisition May Lead to Lafayette Tech Boom

LAFAYETTE – The success of Waitr in Louisiana shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

“It’s such a symbiotic relationship between what Waitr does well, which is get food to people, and what we as Cajuns do well, which is consume food,” says Reece Theriot, a UL professor at the B. I. Moody III School of Business and also the Executive Director for Accelerate South.

The recent purchase of Waitr has some in Acadiana expecting a boom in the already fertile tech industry.
