DoorDash announced that it will be facilitating the delivery of beer, wine and spirits across 20 states, the District of Columbia, Canada and Australia.
DoorDash officials said customers, where legally permissible, can toggle to the Alcohol tab of the DoorDash app to browse and order from a selection of drinks from restaurants, grocery stores, local retailers and convenience stores.
“Over the past year, many cities where we operate evolved their legislation in order to permit the delivery of alcohol to residents’ homes. Over that time, we worked tirelessly to build a trusted alcohol ordering and delivery experience for merchants, customers and Dashers,” said Caitlin Macnamara, Director, Alcohol Strategy & Operations at DoorDash. “We’re committed to providing new earning opportunities for merchants and Dashers, a safe, high-quality experience for customers, and being a responsible leader in compliant alcohol delivery.”
Adding alcohol may increase restaurants and grocers’ average order values by up to 30% and convenience stores by over 50%, according to the release.
Officials said a compliance course will be available to Dashers 21 years or older to ensure they are aware of the laws around the delivery of alcohol. On Monday DoorDash announced partnerships with Responsibility.org, a non-profit focused on eliminating drunk driving and underage drinking, and Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD), which is focused on the same issues.
