SAN FRANCISCO — DoorDash is introducing ultra-fast grocery deliveries in 10-15 minutes beginning with DashMart in New York City. To start, ultra-fast deliveries will be offered from a new DashMart location in Chelsea, N.Y., with more locations and partners coming over the next few months.

With more than 2,000 items, DashMart offers a wide assortment of fresh and frozen groceries, snacks, household goods and local products.

“Consumers increasingly expect an effortless, enjoyable experience, so while we are starting with DashMarts, our goal is to expand this offering to select grocery and convenience partners,” said Christopher Payne, president of DoorDash.

Starting today, customers within the delivery zone can visit the DoorDash app or website and place an order from DashMart for a delivery. Customers who have DashPass will see $0 delivery fees and reduced service fees on their orders. Customers can also use the code WELCOMENYC to receive $15 off their first order one time only through the end of the year. The DashMart Chelsea location will be open from 7 am to 2 am daily.

DoorDash will donate excess DashMart produce to Chelsea Community Fridge & Cupboard.

To meet the demand of ultra-fast deliveries, DashCorps, a DoorDash company, will employ full-time courier employees who will work regular schedules, be actively managed and use a new app designed specifically for their work, which includes job responsibilities beyond delivery. Roles also come with benefits of traditional employment such as hourly earnings and medical, dental and vision insurance.

“Millions of people across the country turn to platforms like DoorDash to earn supplemental income when, where and how they choose, providing them with unique flexibility and choice that is so valuable,” said Payne. “We're proud to be a leader in providing economic opportunities that fit the lives of so many people. And now, we're excited about the new employment opportunity that DashCorps offers for a different type of work.”

DoorDash, based in San Francisco, is a technology company that connects consumers with local and national products nationwide.
