With delivery apps making an incredible surge during the pandemic lockdown, Nextbite, the online restaurant company took advantage of society’s latest craze. In its most prominent venture, the company has partnered with Grammy-nominated artist Wiz Khalifa to satisfy late-night cravings with a delicious bite from Hotbox by Wiz Khalifa.
Since its debut in October of last year, Hotbox by Wiz Khalifa has catered to the rapper's fan base cooking up his personal favorites for late-night seekers who may (or may not) have the "munchies." Although the restaurant doesn’t have any brick-and-mortar locations in Houston, the outpost works with local restaurants to prepare the meals, and utilizes delivery apps like Doordash or UberEats to make deliveries.
"We wanted to bring HotBox by Wiz Khalifa to a city that we knew would appreciate this collaboration," Alex Canter, Nextbite CEO tells Houstonia. "Houston, with its great food scene, was the perfect destination. Our expert culinary team at Nextbite worked closely with Wiz to curate a munchie menu that could deliver his much-loved flavors to homes and fans across the country."
With 37% of college students aiming more towards delivery than dining on-campus, Hotbox by Wiz Khalifa is promoted towards college campuses. The concept is located just 2 miles away from Rice University, in the Texas Medical Center.
The delivery-only service has a menu full of mouthwatering meals labeled Small and Big Hits to fill any appetite. Among selections include the crispy OG Fried Chicken Sandwich, Juicy Bigger Better Buffalo Wings, and Taylor Tots.
Hot Box is located at 2221 W Alabama St. Orders can be placed online.
