On-demand food delivery service, DoorDash, has announced it has launched in Montreal today, its first entry in Quebec and also its first predominantly French-speaking market.
The company says over 750,000 residents in the following 10 boroughs will have access to DoorDash from 11am-10pm, seven days a week:
- Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (locally known as NDG)
- Ville Saint-Laurent
DoorDash says they have added over 300 restaurants to its service, including local favourites such as Boustan, Cacao 70, Mon Ami, Notre-Boeuf-de-Grâce, Abe & Mary’s, Poulet Rouge and Foodtastic Brands.
A new promotion for the first 25 days of service, titled, “Dînez pour Gagner”, will let customers be automatically entered to win daily and weekly prizes.
Daily prizes come in the form of DoorDash credits from $5-$100, while major weekly prizes include a pair of NHL tickets to a Montreal Canadiens home opener on October 10; $1,000 airfare credit; and $1,000 DoorDash credits.
During this launch period, DoorDash says there will be $0 delivery fees for all orders over $10 for the first 30 days.
“We’re thrilled to launch in Montréal, our first predominantly French-speaking market, and continue to expand our fast-growing Canadian footprint,” said Brent Seals, DoorDash’s Country Director of Canada, in an issued statement.
DoorDash has also opened a corporate office at Place Ville-Marie and a Dasher onboarding office in Ville Saint-Laurent.
“As we continue to grow in Canada, it’s a priority for us to invest in and empower the local communities we serve. We are on track to expand our footprint to more than 100 cities in Canada by the end of the year, and look forward to building strong relationships with Canada’s diverse customer base,” added Seals.
