Despite the months that have passed, the Covid-19 pandemic drags on and there are trends that seem to have come to stay. Working from home could be one of them and, for this, DoorDash is adapting. What change is the on-demand prepared food delivery service making?
A new rise in cases that could occur during the winter has led some companies to postpone their return to their office buildings until next spring. For DoorDash and its competitors that is bad news, for Corporate customers can account for a huge portion of the business. This is why the Company has come up with an idea.
According to CNBC, DoorDash on Wednesday said it is expanding its corporate delivery offerings as the ongoing pandemic keeps many office buildings empty.
Its subscription program DashPass will include corporate members, giving employees unlimited free delivery and reduced service fees. Companies can also offer meal credits to their employees to expense meals delivered by DoorDash or its subsidiary Caviar. Group ordering capability and employee gift cards are also part of the delivery company’s corporate business, now available to employees working remotely.
Even though there has been a decline in corporate orders, the pandemic has accelerated demand for DoorDash and its rivals.
The closures of sit-down restaurants during the early months of lockdowns pushed many consumers to try the food delivery apps for the first time.
