Ahold Delhaize USA has announced an agreement with DoorDash to offer an additional on-demand grocery delivery marketplace to customers at each of its omnichannel brands.
DoorDash is already available in nearly all markets Ahold Delhaize USA brands serve, with the service live for most customers at Giant Food, The Giant Co., Hannaford and Stop & Shop.
Food Lion is piloting DoorDash this month and expects to launch it in March.
“As leading omnichannel grocery retailers in their markets, Ahold Delhaize USA brands are focused on providing fast and convenient grocery delivery for customers,” said CEO JJ Fleeman of Ahold Delhaize USA.
“The speed and ease of DoorDash and its strong reputation for providing great customer service aligns with the priorities of each of our local brands. We look forward to delivering this new option for customers of our local brands – as well as new customers through DoorDash – and leveraging this partnership to enable our brands as they continue to drive omnichannel growth.”
Through the partnership, the brands of Ahold Delhaize USA will add to the more than 100,000 non-restaurant stores on DoorDash’s Marketplace and Drive platforms across North America.
“From day one DoorDash has been focused on creating opportunities for our merchant partners to compete, succeed, and flourish in every environment,” said Tony Xu, CEO and co-founder of the company.
“As consumers’ favorite local commerce platform, we look forward to expanding our East Coast selection and giving consumers more access to everything in their neighborhoods, including groceries, retail, flowers, food and more.”
ADUSA brands’ loyalty programs are integrated into the DoorDash experience. All participating brand stores will also be available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that offers no delivery fee, reduced service fees and member-only benefits on eligible orders.
