DoorDash, the nation’s leading last-mile logistics platform, unveiled new pricing changes designed to better support restaurant partners. Beginning today, all U.S. local restaurants will have a choice of three different delivery commission price points with new Partnership Plans, starting with a 15% option. Additionally, DoorDash is lowering Pickup commission costs to 6% and making Storefront, a commission-free online ordering product, free (except for payment processing fees) for all restaurant partners. These actions are intended to create more choices and solutions across a portfolio of restaurants’ needs and put more profits into the pockets of local businesses.

Food banks and food pantries faced new logistical hurdles, with facilities closing doors and people staying at home as the rate of food insecurity grew significantly.
