Almost 25% of alcoholic drinks consumed in the US are purchased at a bar or restaurant. Simply put, people like pairing their food with drinks. At DoorDash, one of the most common customer requests has been an expansion into alcohol delivery. And we’re excited to knock this one off our customers’ wish list.
You can now get alcohol delivered through DoorDash. We’ve launched alcohol delivery in Southern California already, with continued plans to expand to our other markets across the US. Many alcohol delivery services bring warm beer from warehouses or require individual deliveries for alcoholic beverages; however, at DoorDash, we’re building on our existing partnerships and working with popular local restaurants and breweries to let you add alcoholic beverages to your meal – including beer, wine and other spirits. We’re also partnering with select liquor stores in all our markets to ensure you can have more options than you need, whether you decide to pair it with your food is completely up to you.
Some of the top partners we are piloting alcohol delivery with are Del Mar Rendezvous, Mike Hess Brewing, and PrepKitchen in the San Diego area, as well as Golden Road Brewing, Ekkamai, Jinya Ramen Bar, Wurstkuche and High Park Tap House in the OC and LA markets.
Alcohol delivery is an exciting and important extension for the DoorDash product. Since the company started, about three years ago, we’ve been perfecting the science of food delivery, but have always wanted to expand beyond food and be able to bring our customers whatever they desire. Venturing into alcohol delivery is a very big step in the right direction toward this eventual goal, as we’ve now begun expanding our selection into the drink menus of popular local spots.
Customers have always liked the ease, simplicity, and flexibility of ordering through DoorDash, and our preliminary tests in alcohol delivery shows more of the same – a process that is quick, easy, and most importantly, delightful for all of our customers. Thanks to our wide selection of restaurants, our to-the-minute ETAs (apologies in advance if we are a little early sometimes), and our innovative features like the Delight Score, people love ordering food through DoorDash.
Now, our customers can get that same delightful experience, but can now add beer, wine, liquor or more to their cart, for an experience that’s better than ever. With new features like alcohol built right into the DoorDash experience, DoorDash can truly stand alone as the only delivery app you need.
