Just months after launching, Bite Squad has confirmed it will stop delivering to customers in Rochester, St. Cloud and Duluth.

The food delivery company, which was originally founded in Minneapolis before it was sold to Louisiana company Waitr this past January in a $321 million deal, has confirmed deliveries in the cities will come to a halt on Dec. 5.

It had only launched in Duluth this past May, and St. Cloud and Rochester in August, but the three cities have fallen victim as part of a wider cull by Waitr of its lower-performing markets.

A Bite Squad spokesman told the St. Cloud Times that the company had been unable to grow fast enough to become profitable.

These include Columbia Heights, Crystal, Eden Prairie, Edina, Falcon Heights, Golden Valley, Hopkins, Maple Grove, Minneapolis, Minnetonka, New Hope, Oakdale, Plymouth, Richfield, Robbinsdale, Roseville, St. Paul and St. Louis Park.

It also has a major presence in Florida, as well as states including Tennessee, Arkansas and South Carolina.
