DoorDash, America’s biggest digital food delivery service, is heading to Australia to take on UberEats, Menulog, and Deliveroo. Melbourne marks the startup’s first city outside North America and kicks off plans to expand its business to other Australian cities over the next year, according to a blog post by the company.

DoorDash to Broaden Selection for Melburnians

Thomas Stephens, DoorDash’s general manager for Australia, said in a blog post, “We are excited by the opportunity to extend our vision to a brand new continent for the first time.” 

“We dove deep into the Australian market and quickly realised two things — restaurants want more from their delivery partners, and not all Melburnians have access to the selection that they should expect,” he added. 

Stephens said in another blog post that DoorDash is “thrilled to offer Melburnian residents unprecedented access to the restaurants they love and look forward to expanding throughout the suburbs of Melbourne, its surrounding regional cities, and Australia broadly through the end of 2019 and into 2020.” 

DoorDash Dominates US Market 

DoorDash was founded in 2013 and has since swiftly grown to become the leading company in the US market. The company accounted for more than a third of meal delivery sales in the United States, slightly more than Grubhub and far ahead of Postmates and UberEats, according to July 2019 data published by Second Measure, a consumer-behavior tracking firm.

DoorDash recently teamed up with online grocery eCommerce platform Mercato to offer same-day delivery from specialty food stores. Moreover, the company has also partnered with restaurant management app Revention to help streamline delivery for restaurants.
