Don't let the ancient jukebox fool you: Waffle House is a very tech-savvy chain, and they're going to prove it with a new partnership with a startup app. Starting today, Waffle House will be a destination for Roadie, a so-called "neighbor to neighbor" shipping network which lets you hire nearby drivers to deliver your stuff. It's basically the "Uber of package delivery," and it's turning WaHo into your own personal UPS location.
As The Verge notes, Roadie is only currently available in 10 states in the Southeastern US, and their deliveries are mainly door-to-door. But their deal with Waffle House opens them up to 1,750+ diners across 25 states. Drivers will even earn a free waffle and drink for successfully delivering a package to a waiting customer, which gives them far more motivation than your surly mail carrier, who's a big fan of dropping your bills in the mud. You can read up on or download the app over here, before hauling ass to the tastiest mailroom around.
