“DoorDash’s on-demand grocery service is a nice addition to our online shopping options and with delivery in under an hour, we know Smart & Final customers are going to appreciate it,” said Navin Cotton, Director of Digital Commerce at Smart & Final.
Grocery partners were also added onto DashPass, DoorDash’s subscription service that offers members unlimited free delivery fees and reduced service fees.
If customers want to get their groceries in under an hour, they can tap on the banner at the top of the DoorDash app to see a list of grocery stores offering nearby delivery.
“We’re excited to lean into the space more broadly to get customers the grocery essentials they need on-demand in less than an hour, no wait times or scheduled time slots required,” said Fuad Hannon, Head of New Verticals at DoorDash.
The new service follows the launch of virtual DashMart stores, which offer household essentials and local restaurant meals to customers’ doors.
