After emerging from a startup-weekend event in 2013, Waitr has become one of the most popular services connecting restaurants with their customers through an easy-to-use app. The company expanded from its Louisiana home and now operates in more than 200 cities across 10 states. With a headquarters in Lake Charles, Waitr has grown to over 5,000 employees with more than half of those employees in Louisiana.

Company founder and serial entrepreneur Chris Meaux is an active member of the Louisiana entrepreneurship and tech community. After attending Louisiana State University, Chris began his career with Hyundai Electronics in Dallas, Texas and later went on to lead the retail and distribution team in London, UK for McAfee Software. After several years of working for large technology companies, Chris began working with start-ups and small businesses in Silicon Valley and Dallas-Fort Worth before returning to Louisiana in 2011 with an eye toward expanding the tech entrepreneurship ecosystem in Louisiana. Meaux is a member of the 2017 Silicon Bayou 100, 2017 Jr. Achievement Startup Business of the Year, and a finalist for the 2017 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
