Foodservice delivery platform DoorDash has risen as a critical player in the industry. After entering into the grocery delivery business, the company has set its target on the convenience sector, recently announcing the launch of DashMart stores nationwide.
“DashMart is an entirely new channel for local businesses to reach customers online, transforming how our merchant partners can sell their retail products,” the company stated in its post. “We’ve expanded our partnerships with national brands like The Cheesecake Factory and Nando’s, as well as with local restaurants such as Brother’s BBQ in Denver and Corey’s NYC Bagel Deli in Chicago. All of these brands have chosen DashMart to sell their fan-favorite retail products, offering them another avenue for growth. In addition, DashMart enables new types of retailers to sell their products on DoorDash.”
According to the company’s post, DashMart stores are owned, operated, and curated by DoorDash. The venture is a new type of convenience store, offering both household essentials and local restaurant favorites to customers’ doorsteps. On DashMart, customers will find thousands of convenience, grocery, and restaurant items, from ice cream and chips, to cough medicine and dog food, to spice rubs and packaged desserts from the local restaurants found on DoorDash.
From big chains to small businesses, DoorDash has expanded its offerings to reach more consumers during a critical time, leaving plenty of room for more partnerships on the horizon as consumers continue to order in and utilize delivery services.
The brand-new format is currently available in 8 cities, including Chicago, Minneapolis, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dallas, Salt Lake City, the greater Phoenix area, and Redwood City, CA. Over the coming months, the platform will be launching in more cities across the country including San Diego, Baltimore, Denver, Sacramento, and Concord, CA.
