Wegmans Joins Forces with DoorDash to Power Wegmans Meals 2GO Delivery
ROCHESTER, NY - If I don’t have to leave my house to get groceries, you can bet that nine times out of ten I’ll be getting them delivered. Wegmans understands my love for that stress-free lifestyle and has teamed up with DoorDash to deliver some of its popular restaurant-quality meals in the new Wegmans Meals 2GO app. The venture is now live at the Dulles (Sterling) store in northern Virginia, and the Pittsford, Perinton, Penfield, and Holt Road stores in Rochester, NY.
By the year’s end, the retailer will roll out the app to more than 40 stores, with more to follow in 2020.
"We promise to 'make great meals easy,' and it doesn't get any easier than this," said Erica Tickle, Wegmans E-commerce Group Manager. "What's unique about Wegmans Meals 2GO is the variety of delicious menu options. During the year-long pilot at our Pittsford store, we listened and learned, fine-tuned the app, and created a menu that had something for everyone at home or at work."
According to a press release, Wegmans Meals 2GO can be used for orders of lunch, dinner, or anytime-in-between and can be delivered through DoorDash within a roughly five-mile radius of participating stores. Delivery is available on orders of $20 or more, with diners able to choose from sushi, pizza, wings, subs, salads, soups, hot wokery, ready-to-heat meals, desserts, and beverages.
Placing an order is simple. All consumers have to do is download the new Wegmans Meals 2GO app, which is available for both iOS and Android phones. The app will indicate if delivery is an option based on the delivery destination in relation to the store location. Orders can be scheduled for delivery from 11:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. any day of the week. Wegmans Meals 2GO orders can also be placed for customer carryout or curbside pickup, with no minimum required and no added fee.
"Our partnership with Wegmans showcases DoorDash's focus and commitment to better serve our customers and merchant partners beyond restaurant delivery," said Casey North, DoorDash's Vice President of Drive. "Wegmans will leverage our strong logistics platform, which enables them to further deliver on their promise to make great meals easy."
