DoorDash Expands Grocery Offerings With Sprouts Partnership

DoorDash Reaches 25M Users, Eyes Int'l Expansion

DoorDash is continuing its expansion beyond the world of restaurants with a series of new partnerships with grocery chains.

“DoorDash’s mission is to be the one-stop shop for all local commerce needs for consumers, and that starts with bringing every business on Main Street online,” said DoorDash Vice President for Business Development Shanna Prevé in a news release Tuesday (Sept. 20). “Our goal is to level the playing field for retailers while helping consumers get the best of their neighborhood delivered to them instantly.”

That means partnerships with Sprouts Farmers Market, one of the country’s largest retailers for fresh, natural and organic foods, the release stated.

Beginning next month, shoppers will have access to more than 375 Sprouts stores using the DoorDash marketplace to get the grocer’s products delivered to their doorstep, according to the release.

In the last week, the company has announced a series of other partnerships, including with Big Lots, Dick’s Sporting Goods and EG America, which owns 10 convenience store brands.

Meanwhile, DoorDash announced a partnership with regional food retailer Giant Eagle beginning with stores in Columbus, Ohio, and an expanded collaboration with mid-Atlantic grocery chain Weis Markets. In that case, DoorDash said it will “now be powering delivery for their first party channel in addition to DoorDash marketplace,” the release stated.

DoorDash has seen a 130% increase over the last year in customers who used its platform to order from a grocery store, according to the release.

Online orders for grocery delivery are still a holdover from the height of the pandemic, according to research from PYMNTS. Around 40% of consumers order groceries for home delivery every month, while more than half of them place orders once a week or more.
