Ashley Roberts, sister of OrderOnMyWay founder Sam Haines, represented the company recently at OSU-Tulsa Vendor Days in North Hall Lobby.

An Oklahoma State University-Tulsa student is making it easier for Tulsa residents to order carryout using a new smartphone app called OrderOnMyWay.

Sam Haines developed the app with his father, Hank Haines, an avid takeout connoisseur who wanted to speed up the ordering process.

OrderOnMyWay is an app that enables customers to order food from a variety of local restaurants without having to call or wait in line. It is available for free on Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
