DoorDash, a Silicon Valley technology and logistics startup, announced that the company has expanded its partnership with Taco Bell to offer delivery from Taco Bell restaurants in four new markets. Taco Bell and DoorDash first announced their delivery partnership last month when DoorDash began delivering from Taco Bell restaurants in the Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco Bay Area and Dallas regions. Today's announcement extends this partnership to include restaurants in Chicago, Minneapolis, San Diego and Houston, with new catering delivery options available from Houston locations.
In total, DoorDash is now delivering from more than 200 Taco Bell restaurants in more than 100 cities across the country. Pricing and delivery costs vary depending on restaurant location, but delivery fees start at just $3.99 and there are no minimum order sizes.
"We've been incredibly encouraged by our first tests with delivery," said Tressie Lieberman, VP of Digital Innovation and On Demand Services for Taco Bell. "Our partnership with DoorDash has confirmed a strong and growing demand for a customized Taco Bell experience when and where our fans want it most. We're excited to continue using technology and innovation to redefine the customer experience, and we look forward to growing that opportunity to more fans and restaurants across the country."
Today's announcement with Taco Bell expands DoorDash's first national partnership. The Palo Alto based tech company has developed a data-driven logistics platform that provides customers with fast and affordable delivery from a wide selection of local restaurant options.
"Today's expansion with Taco Bell marks yet another important step in our mission to deliver almost anything from local businesses to your door," said Tony Xu, Co-Founder and CEO at DoorDash. "As we grow existing national partnerships, add new partners, and expand our geographic footprint, it's clear that DoorDash is helping customers get the very best out of their community."
