BiteSquad pauses delivery service in Cape Girardeau

Heartland Weekend has confirmed BiteSquad is pausing its delivery operations in Cape Girardeau.

BiteSquad started on Dec. 7 as a way for people in Cape Girardeau to order food from their favorite restaurants straight to their door.

However, several viewers reached out saying when they went to order online, the website popped up a notice saying, “Sorry! Bite Squad does not currently service your area.”

We reached out to BiteSquad to find out what changed.

Here is the company’s response:

Our mission is to make our customers’ day by delivering just what they want from their favorite local restaurants. At this time, we have paused operations in Cape Girardeau to reevaluate how to best serve our customers in that area.

What is BiteSquad?

The online entrepreneurship is the legitimate lovechild of two friends who saw the need for an easy, fast, and affordable way to order from their favorite restaurants without having to leave the couch or office.

According to their website:

“Bite Squad is the last place you’ll ever have to go online to order yummy cuisine for delivery or take-out. We’ve partnered with local restaurants, hand-picked our food lovin’ customer support squad, and wrangled up a fleet of environmentally friendly vehicles to get fresh food from the restaurant straight to your door, quickly and hassle free!”

BiteSuqad started in Minneapolis and now has a fleet of delivery teams in towns across the country.

This would have been the second food delivery service to pop up in Cape Girardeau.

CarGo began a food and alcohol delivery service in 2017, after starting as a ride-sharing program the year before.

CarGo delivers in cities across southeast Missouri and southern Illinois.
