Delivering more for restaurants
Whether it’s boosting online sales, reaching new customers, increasing profit margins, or getting access to financing, DoorDash is delivering more ways to grow your business.
When you think of DoorDash, you think of delivery — but the DoorDash Merchant Suite is delivering more.
Grow online with DoorDash
Unlock the active DoorDash customer base by offering pickup and delivery on the DoorDash app, also known as Marketplace. Plus, increase sales by tapping into DashPass subscribers, who get $0 delivery fees and reduced fees and order more frequently and spend more per order. Included in every partnership is Storefront: set up online ordering and get direct, commission-free orders though your site, social media, and Google Search & Maps.
Attract new customers
Sponsored Listings give you prime real estate in the DoorDash app so you get noticed by new customers. Promotions let you offer discounts or free items to encourage customers to place orders, and Storefront promotions use similar incentives to get customers to place commission-free orders directly on your website. Brand Licensing lets you add a revenue stream by selling an established, well-known brand out of your restaurant’s kitchen.
Increase order volume & size
Increase order volume and size (and, as a result, profits) with Promotions that provide customers with discounts or free items only when they reach a specific minimum order size. If you already offer beer, wine, liquor, or cocktails in-store, add alcohol to your DoorDash menu to help increase ticket sizes and reach customers looking to order both food and alcohol.
Optimize your business
Take your business to the next level by expanding with DoorDash Capital. Easy, accessible financing can help eligible merchants invest in new equipment, open a new location, hire more employees, and much more.
Offer alcohol delivery
Provide customers with same-day alcohol delivery and pickup while maintaining compliance with local alcohol delivery laws & regulations.
Easily manage your DoorDash store
Merchant tools help you manage your business’s DoorDash operations, finances, and strategy. Analyze sales, process orders, respond to customer reviews, and more. Plus, access 24/7 support through chat, phone, and email and a personal support contact for all your DoorDash needs.
Host brands in your kitchen
Use your existing space, staff, and equipment to host well-known brands like Milk Bar and Aria in your kitchen. You can earn additional revenue by offering these items to customers on a separate, virtual-only menu on DoorDash.
Attract high-value diners with Caviar
Caviar is a premium marketplace that facilitates delivery and pickup for the most recognized and loved restaurants in your area.
"We are getting new business from DoorDash. It’s not replacing our sales, it’s truly adding more sales to our operations."
