Ahold Delhaize USA Announces Partnerships with DoorDash

Ahold Delhaize USA announced a new agreement with leading local commerce platform DoorDash to make an additional on-demand grocery delivery marketplace available to customers at each of its local omnichannel brands – Food Lion, Hannaford, Giant Food, The GIANT Company and Stop & Shop. Delivery from DoorDash is expected to be available to customers of each brand in March.

“As leading omnichannel grocery retailers in their markets, Ahold Delhaize USA brands are focused on providing fast and convenient grocery delivery for customers. The addition of DoorDash as a marketplace partner for our companies is very exciting,” said JJ Fleeman, CEO, Ahold Delhaize USA. “The speed and ease of DoorDash and its strong reputation for providing great customer service aligns with the priorities of each of our local brands. We look forward to delivering this new option for customers of our local brands – as well as new customers through DoorDash – and leveraging this partnership to enable our brands as they continue to drive omnichannel growth.”

DoorDash is an additional delivery service offered through our local U.S. brands. This new option adds to our brands’ other great online shopping services like click and collect and delivery of groceries.

DoorDash is available in nearly all markets served by Ahold Delhaize USA brands, and the service is already live for most customers at Giant Food, The GIANT Company, Hannaford and Stop & Shop. Food Lion will pilot with DoorDash in February and expects to launch in its markets in March. Through the new partnership, the local brands of Ahold Delhaize USA will add to the 100,000+ non-restaurant stores already on DoorDash’s Marketplace and Drive platforms across North America.

“From day one DoorDash has been focused on creating opportunities for our merchant partners to compete, succeed and flourish in every environment,” said Tony Xu, CEO and Co-founder at DoorDash. “We’re excited to partner with Ahold Delhaize USA brands to support the growth of their digital channels and help them engage consumers in new ways. As consumers’ favorite local commerce platform, we look forward to expanding our East Coast selection and giving consumers more access to everything in their neighborhoods, including groceries, retail, flowers, food and more.”

ADUSA brands’ loyalty programs are integrated into the DoorDash experience. All participating brand stores will also be available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that offers members $0 delivery fee, reduced service fees and member-only benefits on eligible orders from thousands of restaurants, grocery and convenience stores nationwide.
