DoorDash Partners With 7-Eleven To Expand Offerings

Online delivery service DoorDash is expanding beyond food delivery to embrace just about anything you can find on a convenience store’s shelves.

The company said on Tuesday (Sept. 1) that it is partnering up with 7-Eleven to move beyond its more familiar restaurant and food deliveries. As reported by TechCrunch, the initial service rollout will begin in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City. And according to the company’s chief executive officer, Tony Xu, the partnership will bow next in Boston and Washington, D.C.

DoorDash has raised roughly $60 million in financing to date. In another move beyond restaurant delivery, also within urban centers, the company started to deliver groceries from retailers Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s in an initial program that began in Los Angeles. In terms of delivery time, the company has said that its door-to-door time stands at 45 minutes.

In an interview with the site, the executive said that the “vision for DoorDash has been to build a delivery network in every city. That is beyond restaurants, and this marks the first steps beyond that. From our end, from the very beginning, it was always about bringing customers what it is that they want.” And thus far ordering from the convenience store giant has been on a relatively large scale, according to 7-Eleven’s Raja Doddala, vice president of innovation and omnichannel strategy. Doddala told TechCrunch that his company had been looking to bring in some type of delivery service, which led to the partnership with DoorDash.
