Stories from entrepreneurs

“DoorDash has helped Simply Irie through allowing us to expand our base… customers that may not be able to physically come into the restaurant.”
Piklìz Comptoir Caribéen
“I strongly believe that without DoorDash, we wouldn't be here today. They keep coming up with new ideas to keep our head out of the water.”
“DoorDash has helped our business grow, one, by free marketing in terms of people scrolling down and looking for delivery platforms to order food from. So the marketing aspect of DoorDash, it's something that helps without us even doing anything.”
