DoorDash Revenue and Usage Statistics (2024)

Updated: April 17, 2024

DoorDash began life as a and at launch the four founders ran the entire operation, which included building the app, receiving orders and delivering them. It instilled a culture in the startup which is still ingrained today, as DoorDash employees spend one day a month as a ‘dasher’ delivering food.

In the first year of operations, DoorDash expanded to 70 restaurants in the Bay Area and received $2.4 million in funding. It grew at a rate of 20 percent every week, according to Y Combinator.

Its goal was to build an artificial intelligence system capable of perfecting delivery, by taking into account every variant of the delivery process and using the data to better estimate delivery time and reduce errors. Named Deep Red in homage to the IBM chess system which beat Garry Kasparov, the system recommends restaurants to users and assigns the most capable rider to a delivery.

While it has not perfected delivery, DoorDash has established itself as the leader in the US market, surpassing incumbent Grubhub and global leader Uber Eats. It has held a double digit advantage on the competition since 2020.

DoorDash made this leap to first position by aggressively expanding into markets, sometimes controversially adding restaurants onto the platform before contacting them.

In 2019, Uber attempted to merge with DoorDash, but the two rivals couldn’t come to an agreement. DoorDash acquired Square’s Caviar food delivery service for $410 million a few months later, which is still available to use. It acquired Wolt in 2021, which provided it with a foothold into the European market.

DoorDash also launched a shared kitchen in 2019, which operate similar to dark kitchens that Deliveroo and Uber Eats use in Europe. These kitchens are located in areas with lower expenses and are delivery only, reducing the operating cost.

In 2021, DoorDash went public on the New York Stock Exchange at a $72 billion valuation. That valuation has declined considerably since then, although it has climbed well during 2023 and 2024.
