Eating-in is about to take a big leap this coming weekend when meals from area restaurants can be delivered promptly to your home. Whether you are about to leave the office or work, awaiting the arrival of the hungry family or fearing the drudgery having to shop for lunch or dinner and wait for a take-out order will not be necessary.

Simply go online to the Bite Squad team, the new food delivery company. The company will begin deliveries to Venice and Englewood starting November 16. For customers ordering the service during the grand opening weekend November 16 to 18 a special promotion will be included, free delivery for a year.

Around 100 Venice and Englewood area restaurants are participating. They include Gold Rush BBQ, The Star Thai and Sushi, Zeke’s Uptown Bar & Grill, Ephesus Mediterranean Grill, Plaza Mexico, Mama Leone’s, Prime Time Steak & Spirits, Eggs-Traordinary Cafe, Stefano’s Family Restaurant and Comadre’s Mexican Restaurant.

Popular chains like Chili’s, Beef O’Brady’s and Bob Evans are participating. Delivery is available within a seven-mile radius of restaurant partners.

Providing live order tracking the Bite Squad consumer app keeps customers updated on when their food will arrive; a live chat support team; and fully-uniformed, trained employee drivers ensure professionalism, reliability and timeliness.

Customers in the Venice and Englewood areas can order 7 days a week, from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Orders are placed on the Bite Squad app or website, Delivery fees start at $2.99.

“We are really excited to cover this new area as it ensures the Bite Squad are available throughout entire west coast from Naples to Tampa,” said Liz Sniegocki, Media Relations Manager. “Customers have the security of seeing an employee in green uniform at their door and many of those drivers are veterans and wives of service people.”

Those eligible for the “free delivery for a year” promotion receive a one-year complimentary membership to Bite Squad’s subscription-based service, unlimited. They normally pay a low monthly fee that covers the cost of delivery, no matter how many times they order. For details visit

In doubt which restaurant to order from, simply pick a cuisine that sounds good and let the Bite Squad app filtering tool narrow it down for you. Partner restaurant menu prices are never marked up and there are no order minimums.

In 2012, entrepreneurs Kian Salehi and Arash Allaei saw a need in their hometown community of Minneapolis for an easy, fast and affordable way to order delivery from all the wonderful restaurants in town.

With years of restaurant experience they created Bite Squad which now partners with more than 10,000 restaurants and employ more than 5,000 drivers in more than 350 cities nationwide.

Launching in Florida in early 2017, they started in Orlando and Sarasota in mid-2017 and Port Charlotte and North Port this year. They employ more than 200 drivers in Sarasota, Bradenton, Port Charlotte, Venice and Englewood areas and hundreds of veterans nationwide.

Bite Squad has just announced plans to hire 2,500 veterans and military spouses by 2023 said Sniegocki. Working with veteran organizations and military bases in multiple markets where services operate, they will recruit and hire employee drivers.

A recent survey of nearly 6,000 U.S. consumers indicated 45 percent had food delivered in the previous six months and 46 percent of smartphone users use their phones at least once a month to order restaurant takeout or delivery according to the Bite Squad.
