DoorDash Inc. is an American on-demand prepared food delivery service founded in 2013 by Stanford students Tony Xu, Stanley Tang, Andy Fang and Evan Moore.

Basic Information

DoorDash launched in Palo Alto and, as of May 2019, had expanded to more than 4,000 cities and offers a selection of 340,000 stores across the U.S., Canada and Australia. oorDash has developed a reputation for smarts around how to manage the many factors that make a delivery reliable — how long it takes to prepare food, how many people to keep on call based on irregular demand, which “dasher” is best to pick up an order and deliver it, what mode of transportation the dasher should take, etc. As of August 2019, DoorDash announced it will be partnering with Mercato, an e-commerce platform, to help expand its business and reach independent grocers and specialty stores. This partnership allowed the company to make same-day deliveries, servicing 750 independent grocers across 22 states. In February 2019, DoorDash raised $400 million, bringing the company's total funding to $1.4 billion and reached a total valuation of $7.1 billion. See more
