Starting today, Wendy’s and DoorDash are partnering to bring fans what they’ve been craving: Wendy’s menu delivered right to their door.

Wendy’s is partnering exclusively with DoorDash, the technology company that connects customers with the best local businesses through door-to-door delivery. With delivery from Wendy’s serving 48 major markets nationwide and growing, Wendy’s lovers can get their fix just about anywhere, anytime.

“Rolling out delivery has quickly progressed, along with demand for convenience and delivery trends,” says 
Liz GeraghtyWendy’s vice president of customer activation. “And there’s no better partner for Wendy’s than DoorDash—one of the fastest growing delivery platforms and one with a reputation for maintaining food quality and high customer satisfaction—both top priorities for us. Whether fans order straight to their door or via Wendy’s drive thru, we want the Dave’s Single to be hot and juicy every time.”

Dashers, who deliver on DoorDash, use thermal bags to keep food hot or cold. DoorDash also limits the radius a customer can order from a Wendy’s restaurant to ensure food stays fresh and deliveries are as fast and efficient as possible.

“DoorDash has quickly become the industry standard for on-demand delivery, with more top 100 restaurants choosing to build their delivery business with DoorDash than with any other delivery platform,” says 
Tony Xu, CEO and cofounder of DoorDash. “We’re excited to be offering delivery from Wendy’s restaurants, adding another family favorite to our network.”

Wendy’s and DoorDash piloted a partnership earlier this year in Columbus, Ohio, and Dallas across 135 restaurants, which resulted in highly rated customer satisfaction scores. While Wendy’s staples—the Baconator and Frosty—proved to be popular menu items during the test, fans will be able to choose from a variety of menu items.
