Apply For Dasher Jobs With DoorDash
What’s your favorite restaurant? Do you enjoy The Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, Fuki Sushi, Lyfe, Buffalo Wild Wings, IHOP, Panera, Taco Bell, or some other delicious local spot? Most of these restaurants aren’t known for delivery, but with DoorDash nearly every restaurant can deliver tasty food to your door.
DoorDash offers on-demand delivery from all of your favorite restaurants. They work with both recognizable chain restaurants and local boutique restaurants to provide delivery service. Instead of having to go out for a nice meal, DoorDash brings the food to you in 45 minutes. It’s convenient, hassle free, and absolutely delicious, or as DoorDash claims, it’s “delightful delivery.”
As part of the shared economy, DoorDash utilizes mobile devices and flexible workforces to capitalize on urban logistics. To order a meal or a product via DoorDash, customers use an iOS or Android app to select items from hundreds of different restaurant menus. They can customize their order and pay for it via the app – with the option to include a gratuity for the driver. There are no minimum orders so customers only have to pay for exactly what they want.
Once the order is placed, any working DoorDash driver can accept the pick up and delivery of the order. They head to the restaurant, grab the food, and bring it to the customer’s door. The customer can track the order and receive live status updates throughout the entire process. Getting a delicious meal has never been this easy.
DoorDash’s beautiful business model works well and makes everyone happy. Customers get on-demand delivery. Merchants and restaurants can sign up to be included in the DoorDash delivery service, which helps to boost their bottom line. DoorDash also offers flexible employment opportunities to keen shared economy entrepreneurs. And DoorDash makes a bit of cash by taking a cut of every transaction. There really aren’t any downsides at all.
