Bite Squad is expanding its services on Maui this week with the debut of full service in Kīhei and the addition of breakfast delivery in Kahului.

Company representatives say the on-demand food delivery app’s “rapid success” in Kahului since its May launch prompted the decisions for expansion. Bite Squad already has more than 75 restaurant partners in the area.

Bite Squad will kick off its Kīhei debut with a special “Free Delivery for the Summer” promotion.  Anyone who orders during its Grand Opening Week (July 26 to Aug. 4) will receive a complimentary subscription to Bite Squad Unlimited for the rest of the summer. The unlimited membership waives the delivery fee no matter how many times orders are made through Sept. 23, 2019. Regular delivery fees start at $2.99.

Breakfast delivery starts immediately in Kahului, beginning at 8 a.m. every day. Customers in Kīhei will also be able to order breakfast items without leaving their home or office. Both cities are among the first Bite Squad areas in the country to offer this option.

“The addition of breakfast delivery service creates a new level of convenience for our customers, as well as an additional revenue stream for our restaurant partners,” said Craig Key, Chief Marketing Officer for Bite Squad. “And we’re really excited for new customers in Kihei to try us during the Grand Opening. In return, they’ll get as many orders as they’d like with no delivery fees for the rest of the summer.”
