Instant Gratification Economy
August 20, 2020
All the on-demand food delivery apps seemingly dropped into the cellphone universe spontaneously. Coming off the incredibly popular car- and ride-sharing programs, it made perfect sense to have strangers deliver food to your home.
In DoorDash's 2013 founding year, the company was known as Palo Alto Delivery and offered users 8 menu items. CEO Brian Xu, inspired by his mother's grit-and-ambitionAmerican Dream goals, set out to start a mission to "deliver good by connecting people and possibility." Join the evolution of convenience with DoorDash and get “more time and energy for yourself and those you love.”
On-demand food delivery may seem like cutting edge technology, but the food delivery market actually has its roots. The evolution of convenient food delivery goes back as early as the 1889 when Queen Margarita demanded a pizza be delivered while visiting Naples, Italy.
Colonial hotels delivered family dinners in the 1800s. Post-Civil-War, lunch boxes were delivered, in a basket, with a blanket, for those in need of a picnic.
By the 1920s, delicatessens were delivering sandwiches and ice cream, and, by the late 60s, early 70s, Chinese food, and pizza kept doorbells ringing as the telephone became more popular. With the dawning of the internet, 1995saw the very first on-demand food delivery service.
In 2013, four guys from Stanford had a vision, joined the on-demand delivery list with their modified logistic service technology, and today,DoorDash does more than offer pick up and delivery of your favorite restaurant foods.
DoorDash has a new service called Dashmart, available for shopping trips at popular convenience and pharmacy-retail chains in over 1,100 cities. Talk about expansion, innovation, and satisfying all your one-touch cravings!
It's estimated that $94 billion accounts for the total global on-demand food delivery revenue in 2019. In an industry celebrating 25years, DoorDash is the largest third-party on-demand food delivery service, in the USA, outnumbering its competitors, in sales, in just 7 years.
As the appeal for fast food and restaurant cuisine delivery increased, so did the demand for tasty selections, which in turn grew the on-demand delivery competition. DoorDash was determined to be included as a downloadable app and part of the one-touch craving satisfaction craze.
Next up, here's why DoorDash, the #1 on-demand food delivery service, in a very competitive North American market, should be downloaded on your device.

Technology website, recode, praised DoorDash, writing, “Compared to others ...DoorDash has developed are putation for smarts, [and] how to manage the factors that make a delivery reliable.”
