Lewis Brisbois' National Corporate Team Assists Food Delivery App in Sale to NASDAQ-Traded Company

Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (March 30, 2021) - Fort Lauderdale Managing Partner Michael G. Platner, Fort Lauderdale Partners Jeffrey Weinstock and Christopher Gabbard, and Orange County Associate Steven Novak recently represented Delivery Dudes, a South Florida-based food delivery app, in its acquisition by Waitr Holdings, Inc., a NASDAQ-traded, on-demand food ordering and delivery company. The purchase price for the acquisition was approximately $23 million in stock and cash.

Founded in 2009 and based in Delray Beach, Florida, Delivery Dudes is a leader in premium food delivery in the South Florida market that prides itself on “making life better one delivery at a time.” In 2020, it was ranked #46 by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz in its top 100 private company marketplace apps list. As of Dec 30, 2020, Delivery Dudes operated in small and medium-sized markets in over 50 U.S. cities, mainly in South Florida.

Assisting Delivery Dudes in its transaction was a cross-practice effort. Fort Lauderdale Labor & Employment Partner Cheryl Wilke assisted by providing employment perspective, while Los Angeles Intellectual Property & Technology Partner Daniel DeCarlo provided essential assistance on intellectual property issues that enabled the team to manage risk through the purchase agreement provisions.
