With dining rooms shut down across the country, it's an understatement when I say that we owe a lot to gig workers like delivery drivers to keep our bellies filled and our cravings satisfied. However, one of the inconveniences they come across is finding an open restroom that doesn't require a purchase to use whenever nature calls.
However, thanks to a new app appropriately named The Whizz App, that won't seem to be a problem anymore. Created by gig workers, for gig workers, Whizz uses a Google-styled map to help delivery drivers locate pre-screened locations that will permit them to use restroom facilities, no purchase necessary.
The Whizz App, a black-owned business, was developed by co-founders Robert Logan and Keith Crudupt who could relate to the discomfort and difficulty drivers go through when needing to use the bathroom while on the road. The two friends linked up to create this first-of-its-kind app to bring some comfort to the gig community.
WaBa Grill, one of the nation's leading rice bowl chains, has stepped up to become the very first brand partner of Whizz. What that entails is the ability of app users to get restroom access at any of WaBa Grill's 200 locations across Southern California. Subscribers also get exclusive digital coupons through the app.
The Whizz App is available via download on Apple iOS and Android devices.
