BEAUMONT, Texas & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tapingo, the leading mobile commerce application for college campus dining, today announced a new partnership with Jason’s Deli to launch on-demand delivery of the deli’s extensive choices in the college market.

During the initial launch phase, Tapingo users at the participating colleges in Arizona, Louisiana, North Carolina, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia, Florida and Texas can enjoy on-demand delivery of the entire Jason’s Deli menu, including customized sandwiches, as well as gluten-sensitive and vegetarian options.
