DoorDash, the largest on-demand destination for door-to-door delivery in the United States, Canada, and Australia, announced its official launch in Puerto Rico, its first predominantly Spanish-speaking market. DoorDash has expanded its product to serve customers, merchants, and Dashers in Puerto Rico, with each app and service now fully accessible in Spanish. DoorDash’s entry into Puerto Rico brings expanded opportunities for local businesses, flexible working opportunities, and customer benefits with special promotions for residents kicking off today.
With this launch, DoorDash will add more than 600 local merchants to its industry-leading selection of restaurants, including national partners like The Cheesecake Factory and Panda Express and local favorites such as Santaella, Raices, No Manches, Esencia, Callejeros, Ponte Fresco, The Place @ Condado, and Go Fresh. In addition to serving more than 1.1 million local residents, DoorDash will create flexible contracting opportunities the platform provides to Dashers.
To celebrate its entry into Puerto Rico and support the community, DoorDash is launching a special Descuento de Dash promotion available today through November 23. For every increment of $20 a customer spends on an order, they will receive a $4 discount code and DoorDash will donate $4 to the Foundation for Puerto Rico to support their efforts in driving economic and social development across the island through programs of business support and incubation.
“We’re excited to launch in Puerto Rico, our first predominantly Spanish-speaking market and our first entry into the Caribbean,” said Brent Seals, DoorDash’s Head of Launch. “As we continue to grow globally, it’s a priority for us to invest in and empower the communities we serve. Partnering with The Foundation for Puerto Rico reinforces our commitment to grow local economies and build small business resiliency, and we hope customers help us fulfill this mission by participating in the Descuento de Dash promotion.”
“We are thrilled DoorDash is investing in Puerto Rico, bringing new local jobs and providing opportunities for local businesses to reach more customers,” says Annie Mayol, President of FPR. “Foundation for Puerto Rico's mission is to transform Puerto Rico through social and economic development strategies, and we’re proud to partner with DoorDash who shares our mission to build the local economy by supporting communities and small businesses around the Island so they can thrive.”
