Other Good Things to Know?
DoorDash started in 2013 in San Francisco, CA by Stanford students Evan Charles Moore, Andy Fang, Stanley Tang and Tony Xu. Being a slightly newer on-demand service platform, DoorDash was able to identify and fix many inefficiencies similar services faced with a more hands-on, logistics-based approach.
