DoorDash Expands to Montréal
DoorDash announced its official launch in Montréal, its first predominantly French-speaking market and first market in Quebec. This is the first time that DoorDash has expanded its product to serve customers, merchants, and Dashers in a language beyond English, with each app and service now fully accessible in French.
DoorDash is now live in 78 Canadian cities, including recent expansions to Winnipeg, Halifax (its first city in Nova Scotia), and Regina and Saskatoon (its first cities in Saskatchewan), keeping the company on pace to expand to more than 100 Canadian cities by the end of 2019.
With this launch, DoorDash will add more than 300 merchants to its selection of restaurants, including local favorites such as Boustan, Cacao 70, Mon Ami, Notre-Boeuf-de-Grâce, Abe & Mary's, Poulet Rouge and Foodtastic Brands (with concepts that include Souvlaki Bar, La Belle et la Boeuf, and Bacaro).
In addition to serving more than 750,000 local residents, DoorDash has opened two offices in Montréal: a corporate office at Place Ville-Marie and a Dasher onboarding office in Ville Saint-Laurent. As a result of this launch, DoorDash will build a corporate team of dozens of people in the Quebec area, creating corporate employee opportunities in the Montréal community along with the flexible contracting opportunities our platform provides to Dashers.
