DoorDash Launches New Format DashMart
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - DoorDash has grown to be a critical player in the industry as of late. The platform, most notably known as a delivery service for foodservice, has branched into grocery delivery as well. Now, DoorDash is honing in on the convenience sector; the company recently announced the launch of DashMart stores nationwide, 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. According to the company’s post, DashMart stores are owned, operated, and curated by DoorDash.
“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. “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.”
From big chains to small businesses, DoorDash has expanded its offerings to reach more consumers during a critical time. With more consumers ordering in and utilizing delivery services, this trade news writer can only assume more partnerships are on the horizon for this brand-new, and perhaps first-ever, format.
DashMart 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.
