HONOLULU (KHON2) — A popular food delivery service is coming to Hilo, promising a new, better choice for customers and restaurant partners alike.
Bite Squad is expanding its footprint in Hawaii, debuting a new option for on-demand food delivery from your favorite Hilo restaurants.
Hilo will become the first Bite Squad city on the Big Island of Hawaii. Its expansion to the area follows successful debuts in Kahului and Kihei early this summer. Bite Squad also has service in Honolulu, Kailua, Kapolei, Mililani and Salt Lake, currently boasting more than 700 restaurant partners.
Bite Squad expects to grow quickly in Hilo, matching the response from local Hawaii cities recently introduced to the app. To meet anticipated demand, the company plans to hire 100 people in the area. Drivers can apply at https://www.bitesquad.com/apply.
