DoorDash has announced its alcohol delivery service is expanding to 20 states, as well as DC.
DoorDash is a popular food delivery service, but the company has been expanding into the lucrative alcohol market as well. The company attributes the expansion to various cities and jurisdictions relaxing regulation during the pandemic.
“Over the past year, many cities where we operate evolved their legislation in order to permit the delivery of alcohol to residents’ homes. Over that time, we worked tirelessly to build a trusted alcohol ordering and delivery experience for merchants, customers and Dashers,” said Caitlin Macnamara, Director, Alcohol Strategy & Operations at DoorDash. “We’re committed to providing new earning opportunities for merchants and Dashers, a safe, high quality experience for customers, and being a responsible leader in compliant alcohol delivery.”
The company says it has implemented “rigorous ID verification prior to checkout and multiple ID check points along the delivery to ensure customers are of legal age.”
