DoorDash Delivery Coming To Lindsay

KAWARTHA LAKES-DoorDash, the technology company connecting customers with their favourite local and national businesses, is now available in Lindsay.

Starting today, local restaurants such as Smitty’s Family Restaurants and Kelseys will be available for delivery and pickup on the DoorDash app. Now, residents of Lindsay can download the DoorDash app, or visit the DoorDash website.

DoorDash was founded in 2013 to connect customers with the best of their community, empower local restaurants with access to the online convenience economy through an unparalleled suite of services, and provide Dashers with flexible earning opportunities.

“DoorDash started in the suburbs, and it’s always been a goal to bring the convenience and accessibility of on-demand delivery to the towns and communities outside of major metropolitan areas,” said Brent Seals, GM of DoorDash Canada. “Over the past year we’ve helped introduce delivery to many communities for the very first time and we’re excited to introduce our services to customers, Dashers and restaurants in the Lindsay area.”

On April 28, DoorDash will be newly available in six communities in Canada including Collingwood, Lindsay, Quinte West/Trenton, Saint-Sauveur/Sainte-Adele, Brockville and Petawawa/Pembroke with more to follow.

“As a restaurant owner for 10 years this May, we take a lot of pride in what we offer to our loyal clientele,” says Smitty’s Family Restaurants. “Now through working with DoorDash, we can bring our favourite recipes and traditions to even more members in our community in a way that is convenient and accessible.”

Today, DoorDash offers its services to over 150 communities in Canada and over 4,000 cities in Canada, the United States and Australia.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, DoorDash has taken significant active steps to ensure the safety of its entire community, including providing:

  • Main Street Strong Pledge committing $200 million USD over five years to support restaurants, Dashers, and the broader community across Canada and the U.S.
  • Providing $120 million USD in commission relief and marketing investments
  • Free personal safety equipment for Dashers, including hand sanitizer, gloves, wipes, and masks
  • Two weeks of earnings for eligible Dashers affected by COVID-19
