The top two food delivery services may be close in U.S. market share, but their strongholds are in different regions.
DoorDash overtook GrubHub last year to become the U.S. food delivery leader. The startup continued to expand its grasp on the market, reaching a 45% share in May, according to data from analytics firm Second Measure. Covid-19 has buoyed meal delivery sales—the same data shows that U.S. sales across all delivery platforms has roughly doubled since the start of the year.
DoorDash has also been adding more tools for its restaurant partners since the start of the pandemic, adding turnkey digital storefronts, customer tracking for pickup orders and a zero commission contactless to-go feature that allows customers to order in-store using a QR code. It's also been diversifying outside of the restaurant delivery space, adding grocery delivery to its app last week and an online convenience store DashMart in early August.
Adding products outside of restaurant delivery will allow DoorDash to better compete with the likes of Uber Eats, which began rolling out grocery delivery in July, and build up additional revenue streams as it heads toward public status.
