DoorDash and 7Eleven agree on-demand delivery deal
DoorDash will be providing on-demand delivery of products from participating 7-Eleven stores in five major metropolitan markets across the US. The delivery service went live in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago yesterday (1 September), and is set to be available in Washington, D.C., and Boston in the coming months.
The new tie-up with 7-Eleven marks DoorDash’s first partnership outside of restaurant delivery, and the company says that it has brought it “one step closer toward reaching its goal of providing on-demand delivery across all types of local businesses”.
In an official joint announcement issued yesterday, 7-Eleven and DoorDash said that the new “strategic relationship” between the two companies will include in-store marketing, local promotions and “the availability of ‘Convenience Packs’ or groups of products that make purchasing common items from 7-Eleven stores more convenient”.
“By working with DoorDash, we can bring on-demand delivery to more people and more places,” said Raja Doddala, 7-Eleven’s vice president of innovation and omnichannel strategy.
“This partnership between the world’s largest convenience store chain and a leading on-demand delivery start-up can redefine convenience. DoorDash’s technology, data analytics and commitment to the customer experience impresses us and makes them a great match for 7-Eleven’s omnichannel initiatives.”
