US-based food delivery company DoorDash has opened a delivery-focused commissary kitchen in downtown Brooklyn, New York City.
DoorDash opened the location in partnership with a New York City-based shared kitchen, Nimbus.
The new kitchen, part of DoorDash Kitchens’ network, will offer food from five select local, regional and national restaurants.
The restaurant partners include DOMODOMO, Kings Co Imperial, Pies ‘n’ Thighs, moonbowls and Little Caesars.
Additionally, DoorDash Kitchens Brooklyn will offer beverages from Birch Coffee, pastries from Kado Patisri, and treats from Milk Bar.
The delivery-focused location also has a dine-in area, with a seating arrangement for more than 20 people.
DoorDash Kitchens senior director Ruth Isenstadt said: “New York is one of the many hubs for noteworthy dining experiences and we’re proud to bring DoorDash Kitchens to Brooklyn in partnership with Nimbus, adding even more options for food-lovers to choose from in their neighbourhood.
“While this location is delivery-forward in nature, to enable the growth of restaurant partners, we’re looking forward to offering a dine-in area for upwards of 20 guests – a first for DoorDash Kitchens.”
DoorDash Kitchens opened its first commissary kitchen in 2019 in Redwood City, California.
The initiative helps restaurant partners reach new customers and increase revenue without investing in opening a new location.
Commenting on the opening of DoorDash Kitchens Brooklyn, Nimbus co-founder and CEO Camilla Opperman said: “We’re proud to partner with DoorDash by providing turnkey kitchen infrastructure and community event spaces to their restaurant partners.
“DoorDash has fiercely advocated for the growth of these restaurants by supporting their delivery and pick-up operations, so we’re thrilled to complement these efforts by managing the real estate, supporting kitchen operations and running events from our community front-of-house.”
