Those living in the Seattle region have yet another option for food delivery — and this one brings Taco Bell to your door.
DoorDash announced today that it is now operating in Seattle, though initially its food delivery service is available east of Lake Washington in cities like Kirkland, Redmond, and Bellevue — the company calls these “some of the larger neighborhoods that have typically been underserved by delivery services.”
Those living downtown Seattle and surrounding areas like Fremont and Ballard will be able to use DoorDash in the “coming weeks and months,” according to a blog post.
For now, DoorDash is working with more than 150 restaurants, including higher-end options like Cactus down to national chains like Denny’s and Taco Bell, which partnered with the company in July for deliveries. Users can access menus and pay for food all from the DoorDash app.
DoorDash joins a long list of food delivery companies operating in Seattle, which include the likes of Peach, Lish, Munchery, Square-owned Caviar, Postmates — which also delivers Taco Bell — Bitesquad, Seamless, GrubHub, Yelp-owned Eat 24, and many others that we tested last year.
Even big tech giants like Amazon — which also delivers groceries with AmazonFresh, a competitor to Instacart — are getting involved, with the Seattle company rolling out a new restaurant delivery service that GeekWire tested earlier this month. Uber is also gearing up to debut its own food delivery service UberEATS in Seattle.
Founded in 2013, DoorDash has raised nearly $60 million to date, including a $40 million Series B round this past March. Seattle marks DoorDash’s 17th market. The company also inked a national partnership with 7-Eleven earlier this month.
Through October, DoorDash is charging a $1 delivery fee in the Seattle region, however that will increase starting in November.
