The door-to-door delivery company now offers its services to Wendy's customers.
DUBLIN, Ohio – Starting Dec. 1, Wendy's customers can start getting meals delivered right to their door thanks to a new partnership with DoorDash. The door-to-door delivery company will be offering Wendy’s delivery in the markets it currently serves.
“Rolling out delivery has quickly progressed, along with demand for convenience and delivery trends,” said Liz Geraghty, Wendy’s vice president of Customer Activation. “And there’s no better partner for Wendy’s than DoorDash — one of the fastest growing delivery platforms and one with a reputation for maintaining food quality and high customer satisfaction — both top priorities for us. Whether fans order straight to their door or via Wendy's drive thru, we want the Dave's Single to be hot and juicy every time.”
DoorDash delivery personnel, called Dashers, use thermal bags to keep food hot or cold. There is also a limitation on the delivery radius from Wendy’s restaurants to guarantee food stays fresh and deliveries are efficient.
“DoorDash has quickly become the industry standard for on-demand delivery, with more top 100 restaurants choosing to build their delivery business with DoorDash than with any other delivery platform,” said Tony Xu, CEO and co-founder of DoorDash. “We’re excited to be offering delivery from Wendy’s restaurants, adding another family favorite to our network.”
Wendy’s and DoorDash ran a pilot program in 135 restaurants in Columbus, Ohio, and Dallas earlier this year.
