Drive more profits with DoorDash

As the #1 category leader in food, DoorDash can help you expand your restaurant business and make more sales — without taking a hit to your profit margin.

Delivering more

When you think of DoorDash, you think of delivery — but the DoorDash Merchant Suite delivers many ways to help you grow.

Grow with DoorDash

Expand your reach by listing your business on the DoorDash app, also known as Marketplace. Plus, increase sales by tapping into DashPass subscribers, who spend and order more on average. Included in every partnership is Storefront — customizable and commission-free online ordering that lives on your website. Or use Drive to offer delivery from your own app or site by tapping into DoorDash’s network of Dashers. Finally, streamline operations with Bbot, our in-store digital ordering and payment solution.

Insights you can use

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.

Access financing

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.
