Throughout the past year, DoorDash has expanded on the vision to deliver the best of every local neighborhood. Now, we are taking it one step further and expanding what it means to get the best of any neighborhood with the introduction of Nationwide Shipping on DoorDash and Caviar. Consumers can now order delicious meals and items from iconic restaurants and retailers across the country and have them delivered directly to their doorstep.

With Nationwide Shipping, consumers can order (or gift!) everything from sweet treats and savory meals, to flowers and fresh produce, with free delivery from anywhere in the nation in just a few days. With a wide variety of restaurants and shops across the country to choose from ranging from famed and well-known merchants like Carlo’s Bakery (Hoboken, NJ), Katz’s Delicatessen (New York, NY), Momofuku, Carbone Fine Food (New York, NY), and Get Maine Lobster (Portland, ME) to local heroes like Big Shakes Hot Chicken (Franklin, TN), Chocolate and the Chip (Los Angeles, CA) and more, there’s a perfect range of options for whatever you are craving.

Nationwide Shipping on DoorDash and Caviar opens the door to new neighborhoods and communities and invites consumers to try something new or share something nostalgic without ever actually having to leave home.

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with DoorDash and honored to be one of the first merchants signing onto their Nationwide Shipping launch. DoorDash is a trusted brand that’s going to help us introduce more people to the heritage and flavors of Maine lobster and fine seafood. We love what we do and can’t wait to grow our business thanks to the power and reach of their platform.” – Mark Murrell, CEO, Get Maine Lobster

Here’s How Shipping Works

  • Open the DoorDash or Caviar app and click into the Nationwide Shipping carousel to explore available merchants and their offerings. If using the DoorDash iOS app, select the Shipping tile on the homepage to access offerings.

  • Select the items to order and proceed to checkout. Consumers will have the option to have their order shipped ASAP or choose a future delivery date up to 3 months out. Customers can review the expected delivery date before checkout. Once the merchant has prepared the order, it’s shipped via 1-2 day free shipping (product will arrive 2-4 days from date of order on average).

  • Once the merchant ships the order, consumers will receive a confirmation email from DoorDash or Caviar. Once the order is delivered, consumers will receive another email indicating the order has been delivered.

  • Et voilà! Unbox your meal or items from the insulated packaging, unthaw (if necessary) and enjoy (or freeze/refrigerate to enjoy at a later date)!


Send a Gift with Nationwide Shipping

This holiday season, and for all holidays and gift giving events to follow, consumers can send a gift to a friend or loved one via Nationwide Shipping on DoorDash and Caviar. Consumers can simply select the items they want to send as a gift and add a gift message that will be included in the packaging. In the coming weeks, consumers will be able to go a step further and choose from a range of fun, digitally animated cards for a variety of occasions as well as add recipient contact information for tracking notifications.
