"We're lucky to have such an amazing food scene [in Los Angeles] and we look forward to serving the community from the city's top restaurants."

DoorDash, the newest on-demand food delivery service out of Silicon Valley, has made its way to LA. They’re opening doors for diners everywhere who have been searching for the convenience of delivery, with the luxury of selection. With hundreds of restaurant choices on their website, and the ability to deliver throughout West LA, DoorDash has become the go-to service for busy families in LA, college students without a kitchen, and office lunches.

Using an automated delivery system algorithm, DoorDash calculates factors to improve delivery time that include road conditions, customer location, restaurant prep time, the driver’s past performance, temperature of the food being delivered to pinpoint the best driver suited for the job, as well as the most effective delivery route.

“Efficiency is key, which is why we account for so many factors in our central dispatch system – bike vs. car, pizza vs. sushi, Monday vs. Friday,” says Kevin Huang, General Manager of DoorDash Los Angeles. “With the ever-changing landscape of LA traffic conditions and other variables, the algorithm will select the right driver for the delivery within seconds."

Due to their quick delivery time and quality selection, DoorDash's entrance into the LA market has been a great success. “LA is our fastest growing market and has huge potential,” says Tiffany Too, LA Community Manager. “We’re lucky to have such an amazing food scene and we look forward to serving the community from the city’s top restaurants.”

The tech company is excited about expanding to other regions of California, as well. Bringing the service to Manhattan Beach starting November 3, 2014, consumers will be able to order from their favorite restaurants and even have daily groceries delivered to them at home in the South Bay.

DoorDash was founded in 2013 by a group of Stanford students with experience at industry-leading tech companies and enables food delivery to areas that were previously not available. With a mission to empower small business owners to offer meals to a wider audience, DoorDash is helping restaurants with delivery, and customers with selection.
