DoorDash brought its delivery-based grocery and convenience stores to Canada for sales through just one app.
The San Francisco, California company whose primary business is restaurant food delivery said it has opened DashMart locations in Toronto, London, Kitchener, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
DashMart locations operate through a “dark store” model, where customer visits are not accepted as sales are made only through deliveries processed on the app.
DashMart locations operate from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and offer more than 2,000 grocery and convenience store items, including fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and dairy, staples, and essential household items.
DoorDash plans to expand the DashMart model further across Canada, but spokeswoman Catherine McCormack would not provide an expected number of stores or cities of interest.
Rival SkipTheDished runs a similar business called Skip Express Lane, which started with locations in Winnipeg and London, Ont.
