American pizza chain Papa John’s International has established a new partnership with on-demand food delivery service DoorDash to offer delivery services from more than 1,400 restaurants.
The partnership is part of the company’s plans to reach new customer segments and expand its off-premise offerings through delivery and takeout.
Papa John’s customer experience senior vice-president Anne Fischer said: “This partnership extends our continued commitment to meet customers wherever they are and provide simple, easy ordering for guests in addition to our own world-class Papa John’s mobile app.
“More than 60% of Papa John’s transactions occur online. With this in mind, we are dedicated to exceeding our customers’ expectations when it comes to ordering and delivery convenience.”
Customers need to use the DoorDash platform or its mobile app for Android or iOS to place orders from Papa John’s restaurants across the country.
The delivery platform will also offer free delivery service for three days starting tomorrow on all orders more than $10 placed at participating locations to celebrate the launch.
Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, Papa John’s recently announced total revenues of $1.57bn for the fiscal year (FY2018) ending 30 December 2018.
Established in 2013, DoorDash connects customers with local and national restaurants in more than 3,300 cities across the US and Canada.
Last month, the food delivery firm secured $400m in funding in Series F financing co-led by Singaporean holding company Temasek and US-based Dragoneer Investment Group.
