Move over UberEats - America's top on-demand food platform - DoorDash has launched in Australia.
Australia’s ‘foodie capital’, Melbourne, will be the first to experience the launch of DoorDash, the first expansion of the brand outside of North America.
Boasting 'unparalleled convenience', DoorDash will see Melburnians benefitting from a wider selection of restaurants than ever before.
Thousands of restaurants will be available for delivery through DoorDash – in addition to hundreds for pick up – across the CBD and inner suburbs, with plans to expand to the outer suburbs in the coming weeks.
What kind of food can you get?
At launch, customers can order from well-known brands such as Nando’s, Betty’s Burgers and Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill, as well as local independent restaurants including misschu, Bay City Burrito and exclusive partners Cedar Bakery and Il Gusto.
“We are excited Australia is our first international expansion outside of North America,” says DoorDash General Manager, Australia, Thomas Stephens.
“We dove deep into the Australian market and quickly realised two things; restaurants want more from their delivery partners, and not all Melburnians have access to the selection that they should expect.
“We’ve built a lot of product and expertise to solve these problems in North America. Combining that experience with a tailored approach just for Melbourne, we’re excited to grow the market here. We’ve built a service for Australian eating habits with a simple focus: provide more access to Melburnian’s favourite foods,” says Thomas.
Along with a wide selection of Melbourne’s finest eateries, DoorDash offers a superior delivery experience plus a unique ‘pick-up’ function allowing users to collect their meals on the go in addition to ‘group ordering’ for big groups.
DoorDash has big plans to continue growing throughout the country, one region at a time.
“From Melbourne, we aim to continue our expansion efforts throughout Victoria and Australia through the remainder of 2019 and into 2020,” says Thomas.
To celebrate DoorDash coming to Melbourne, it will offer $0 delivery for the first 30 days as well as a special “30 or $30” promotion, promising all orders delivered within 30 minutes.
