SARASOTA — On-demand food ordering and delivery company Bite Squad is looking to hire 200 new contract drivers in the Sarasota area.
The drivers, once activated as independent contractors, will be able to start immediately, according to a press release. Requirements for applicants include a valid driver’s license, proof of auto insurance and a smartphone. People must be 18 years or older to be eligible.
Chris Barnes, head of driver operations, says flexible schedules are available for drivers. “One local manager told me a driver made over $9,500 last month alone,” says Barnes in the statement.
Bite Squad provides masks, gloves and sanitation spray to its drivers. It also offers no-contact delivery for all restaurant orders.
“These positions will not only help satisfy the continued demand for delivery from restaurant partners, they will offer employment during a time when many companies are cutting back their workforce,” says Bite Squad CEO Carl Grimstad in the statement.
Bite Squad provides a way to discover, order and receive food from local restaurants, national chains and grocery stores. As of June 30, prepared food ordering and delivery company Waitr along with Bite Squad operated in small- and medium-sized markets in the U.S. in over 600 cities.
