DoorDash, the technology company connecting customers with local and national businesses, is now available in Cobourg and Port Hope. Local restaurants such as Daybreak, Wimpy’s Diner, Symposium Café Restaurant, Perogies & Poutine, Wing Shack and Fish & Chip Shoppe will be available for delivery and pickup on the DoorDash app. Now, residents of Cobourg and Port Hope can download the DoorDash app, or visit the DoorDash website.
“DoorDash started in the suburbs, and it’s always been a goal to bring the convenience and accessibility of on-demand delivery to the towns and communities outside of major metropolitan areas,” said Brent Seals, GM of DoorDash Canada. “Over the past year we’ve helped to introduce delivery to many communities for the very first time and we’re excited to introduce our services to customers, Dashers and restaurants in the Brockville area.”
On April 28, DoorDash will be newly available in eight communities in Canada including Collingwood, Lindsay, Quinte West/Trenton, Saint-Sauveur/Sainte-Adele, Brockville, Cobourg/Port Hope, Gravenhurst/Bracebridge and Petawawa/Pembroke with more to follow.
“Established in 1996, we are a proudly Canadian company serving a variety of Canadian classics. We’ve grown province-wide over the years, now serving more than 21 communities including Cobourg,” says Daybreak and Symposium Café. “We’re extremely excited to be able to offer delivery through with DoorDash and reach new customers with our delicious eats.”
Today, DoorDash offers its services to over 150 communities in Canada and over 4,000 cities in Canada, the United States and Australia.
