ORLANDO, Fla., June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Lobster®, the world's largest seafood restaurant company, announced today the expansion of its partnership with last-mile logistics platform DoorDash to make delivery of high quality, traceable, sustainable, responsibly-sourced seafood even more accessible. Together with DoorDash, delivery will be available from more than 300 Red Lobster locations across the U.S. and Canada by mid-July, giving more guests a convenient way to enjoy a great seafood meal from the comfort of their homes or offices.
"We know our guests are busy, so we want to offer ways that make it easy and convenient for them to dine with us," said Kim Lopdrup, CEO, Red Lobster. "We're excited to expand our partnership with DoorDash as another way to grow our off-premise offerings and provide guests with an ultimate seafood dining experience, no matter where they are."
Through this partnership, Red Lobster will significantly increase its delivery footprint and ensure a best-in-class customer experience through a full integration of DoorDash into its Point of Sale (POS) system. By mid-July, Red Lobster guests in all of DoorDash's service areas will be able to place their orders through DoorDash's mobile app or website.
"At DoorDash we strive to offer the highest quality and service to our merchants, and we're thrilled to scale our partnership with Red Lobster," said Christopher Payne, Chief Operating Officer of DoorDash. "We look forward to making it even easier for customers everywhere to get their fresh seafood fix."
