Waitr to change name
Lafayette-based food delivery service Waitr is changing its name after agreeing to pay $4.7 million to a similar business in California over trademark issues.
The company has started delivering groceries, concessions at LSU baseball games and signed a deal to create a specialized platform for the sale and delivery of legal marijuana.
The Lafayette-based Waitr was founded in 2008 and trademarked its name in 2016. The California business has been demanding the Louisiana company abandon the use of its trademark since 2015.
