Kitava is excited to participate in the Advisory Council because it shows DoorDash is interested in becoming a true partner for the industry, and is willing to invest in making the delivery business model sustainable for restaurants. We applaud DoorDash for giving restaurants a seat at the table, and look forward to helping shape the future of our industry in a way that's beneficial for all.
