With its latest expansion, DoorDash will service 750,000+ more residents across Canada
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14, 2019 /CNW/ -- DoorDash, the largest and fastest-growing on-demand destination for door-to-door delivery in more than 4,000 cities in the United States and Canada, today announced its official launch in Montréal, its first predominantly French-speaking market and first market in Quebec. This is the first time that DoorDash has expanded its product to serve customers, merchants, and Dashers in a language beyond English, with each app and service now fully accessible in French. DoorDash is now live in 78 Canadian cities, including recent expansions to Winnipeg, Halifax (its first city in Nova Scotia), and Regina and Saskatoon (its first cities in Saskatchewan), keeping the company on pace to expand to more than 100 Canadian cities by the end of 2019. DoorDash's entry into Montréal also brings new jobs to the area, expanded opportunities for local businesses, and customer benefits with special promotions for residents kicking off today.
With this launch, DoorDash will add more than 300 merchants to its industry-leading selection of restaurants, including local favorites such as Boustan, Cacao 70, Mon Ami, Notre-Boeuf-de-Grâce, Abe & Mary's, Poulet Rouge and Foodtastic Brands (with concepts that include Souvlaki Bar, La Belle et la Boeuf, and Bacaro).
In addition to serving more than 750,000 local residents, DoorDash has opened two offices in Montréal: a corporate office at Place Ville-Marie and a Dasher onboarding office in Ville Saint-Laurent. As a result of this launch, DoorDash will build a corporate team of dozens of people in the Quebec area, creating corporate employee opportunities in the Montréal community along with the flexible contracting opportunities our platform provides to Dashers.
To celebrate its entry into Montréal, DoorDash is launching a special "Dînez pour Gagner" promotion* that will be live for the first 25 days of service in Montréal. When a DoorDash customer places an order through the platform, they will automatically be entered to win daily and weekly prize giveaways. Daily prizes are in the form of DoorDash credits, ranging from $5 to $100. Weekly prizes include one pair of tickets to a 2019 professional hockey home opener in Montréal on October 10, $1,000 airfare credit, and $1,000 in DoorDash credits. Customers will be notified if they are eligible to win via email. As a fun customer bonus alongside this promotion, DoorDash will offer $0 delivery fees** on all orders over $10 for each customer's respective first thirty days on DoorDash.
"We're thrilled to launch in Montréal, our first predominantly French-speaking market, and continue to expand our fast-growing Canadian footprint," said Brent Seals, DoorDash's Country Director of Canada. "As we continue to grow in Canada, it's a priority for us to invest in and empower the local communities we serve. We are on track to expand our footprint to more than 100 cities in Canada by the end of the year, and look forward to building strong relationships with Canada's diverse customer base."
Starting today, DoorDash will offer delivery from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m., seven days a week to the 10 following boroughs in Montréal:
- Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (locally known as NDG)
- Ville Saint-Laurent
