Wendy’s rolls out door-to-door delivery service powered by DoorDash

 

Customers Can Now Order Baconators, Frosty Desserts and More Wendy’s Favorites Right to Their Door

DUBLIN, Ohio, 2017-Dec-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — Starting today (Dec. 1, 2017) Wendy’s and DoorDash are partnering to bring fans what they’ve been craving: Wendy’s deliciously different menu DELIVERED right to their door. Say bye-bye to sitting in traffic and hello to more free time because there’s no need to leave home when your favorite food is delivered right to you.

Wendy’s is partnering exclusively* with DoorDash, the technology company that connects customers with the best local businesses through door-to-door delivery. With delivery from Wendy’s serving 48 major markets nationwide and growing, Wendy’s lovers can get their fix just about anywhere, anytime.

“Rolling out delivery has quickly progressed, along with demand for convenience and delivery trends,” said Liz Geraghty, Wendy’s Vice President of Customer Activation. “And there’s no better partner for Wendy’s than DoorDash – one of the fastest growing delivery platforms and one with a reputation for maintaining food quality and high customer satisfaction – both top priorities for us. Whether fans order straight to their door or via Wendy’s drive thru, we want the Dave’s Single to be hot and juicy every time.”

Dashers, who deliver on DoorDash, use thermal bags to keep food hot or cold. DoorDash also limits the radius a customer can order from a Wendy’s restaurant to ensure food stays fresh and deliveries are as fast and efficient as possible.

“DoorDash has quickly become the industry standard for on-demand delivery, with more top 100 restaurants choosing to build their delivery business with DoorDash than with any other delivery platform,” said Tony Xu, CEO and Co-founder of DoorDash. “We’re excited to be offering delivery from Wendy’s restaurants, adding another family favorite to our network.”

Wendy’s and DoorDash piloted a partnership earlier this year in Columbus, Ohio, and Dallas across 135 restaurants, which resulted in highly rated customer satisfaction scores. While Wendy’s staples – the Baconator and Frosty – proved to be popular menu items during the test, fans will be able to choose from a variety of menu items.

*Exclusive in the U.S. markets DoorDash serves.

DoorDash marketplace to be integrated to the NCR Aloha Platform-of-Sale

DoorDash integration with the industry-leading NCR Aloha POS will help improve store operations and reduce delivery times

DULUTH, Ga., 2017-Jul-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, today (July 24, 2017) announced an agreement with DoorDash, an on-demand delivery platform operating in more than 500 cities nationwide, for the planned integration of the DoorDash marketplace to the NCR Aloha Platform-of-Sale (POS). The integration will allow restaurants to more efficiently receive and manage delivery orders placed through DoorDash, while helping to provide a better experience to DoorDash customers.

Integrating delivery orders directly into the POS will makes it easier for restaurants on DoorDash to manage their orders, increase accuracy and save time. DoorDash will leverage NCR’s API ecosystem to integrate its delivery marketplace to the NCR Aloha Platform, enabling automated order entry. The integration will be available to restaurants using NCR Aloha and DoorDash in the coming months.

“DoorDash is focused on providing an incredible merchant experience, and one reason restaurants choose to partner with us is because of the customizability of the platform,” said Tony Xu, CEO and co-founder of DoorDash. “Integrating DoorDash with NCR Aloha provides restaurants with another way to streamline their business and expand their off-premise business without requiring additional technology.”

DoorDash’s platform is used by the most top 100 national restaurant brands to power their on-demand delivery business, making them a natural fit for a partnership with NCR Aloha. In addition to their respective leadership in serving restaurants, NCR and DoorDash also share common customers in the retail sector. The opportunity created by this partnership and NCR’s omni-channel approach has the potential to create significant value for NCR, DoorDash, and their common customers.

“We are excited to hear of the integration efforts between Aloha POS and DoorDash.   Our partnership with both DoorDash and NCR will open up doors for P.F. Chang’s to deliver its made from scratch food to even more guests outside of our restaurant in a consistent and timely manner,” said Dwayne Chambers, chief marketing officer for P.F. Chang’s. “The integration between DoorDash and NCR will allow us to update our in-restaurant and delivery menus at the same time, on one platform. This helps us to realize a number of operational efficiencies and ensures that our diners can choose from the most updated menu items, whether they’re eating in our restaurant or dining in the comfort of their own home.”

“As restaurants add new ordering and delivery options to their business to drive growth, it’s critical to have technology in place that streamlines the ordering process and, operationally, treats every order the same, regardless of what channel it comes from,” said Don Zimmerman, vice president of hospitality solutions at NCR. “NCR is excited to extend this capability to our customers that leverage DoorDash’s innovative technology, enabling them to easily manage both delivery and in-house orders from start to finish.”

Dallas, TX and Palo Alto, CA, 2015-9-1 — /EPR Retail News/ —  7‑Eleven, Inc. and DoorDash today announced a partnership to provide on-demand delivery from participating 7‑Eleven stores in five major metropolitan markets across the US.

Today’s announcement marks DoorDash’s first partnership outside of restaurant delivery, bringing DoorDash one step closer toward reaching its goal of providing on-demand delivery across all types of local businesses.

The 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. 7‑Eleven’s expanded product assortment from fresh foods and beverages to household goods offer customers a one-stop shopping experience, which is a compelling value proposition to busy, on-the-go consumers. For a limited period, the delivery service fee is $2.99.

“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.”

“We’re proud to launch our first expansion beyond restaurants with 7‑Eleven,” said Tony Xu, CEO and co-founder of DoorDash. “7‑Eleven has shown a true commitment to learning the ins and outs of delivery and even went dashing with our team to see DoorDash in action. We’ve worked closely throughout the testing process to ensure that their products — from convenience goods to fresh and prepared foods — are well suited for delivery.”
