“Partnering with Slutty Vegan appealed to me because it’s fresh, and people will wait in line for her products,” Robertson said. “My schedule didn’t allow me the time to wait for the food, so I thought of a concept to help myself and others get the food without the hassle of waiting.”
Robertson, along with Shawnquita Shedrick and Raquel Neely launched Wait Up! on June 1. Getting the word out proved to be an obstacle for the trio - but public response is steadily increasing. They are hiring "wait specialists," and the starting pay is $10 an hour for every reservation that's booked. Wait Up! will also partner with Slutty Vegan's food trucks and the restaurant's second location, which is slated to open in downtown Jonesboro.
