Chowly, a restaurant technology company that integrates third-party delivery marketplaces with restaurants’ point-of-sale (POS) systems, today announced that it has partnered with DoorDash, a last-mile logistics platform in more than 4,000 cities in the United States and Canada, to bring DoorDash Drive to Chowly’s restaurant clients nationwide.

This partnership will provide restaurant brands of all sizes the opportunity to grow their business by offering on-demand logistics and/or streamlining existing delivery operations to accommodate for peak times, unexpected surge of orders, downtime, and service outside of standard areas.

Through DoorDash Drive, Chowly will enable restaurants to start accepting delivery orders.
When delivery orders are placed via a restaurant’s native website or mobile app, or even by
phone call, Chowly will automate the process of calling a “Dasher” (a DoorDash driver), without requiring restaurant employees to re-enter the delivery order and address into a separate tablet to call a driver.

The Chowly and DoorDash partnership will thus significantly expand operational efficiencies for restaurateurs, with potential benefits including order fulfillment, last-mile logistics, and cost reductions.

With this partnership, Chowly continues to execute its overarching strategy of simplifying the full spectrum of restaurant operations, adding to its already well established POS integration solution for orders from third-party marketplaces such as DoorDash. Chowly currently integrates over 60,000 orders per day by providing POS integration to Golden Corral, Church’s Chicken, Dos Toros, Protein Bar & Kitchen, and many other brands.

In the coming months, Chowly plans to further expand its POS integration solutions to enhance all aspects of restaurants’ operations.
