Daniel Hedges working to get DoorDash option in Columbia

Daniel Hedges is planning to be available as a DoorDash driver for the Columbia area this summer, but Hedges says that people need to contact local restaurants if they'd like to see the option become a reality.

"I cannot do this myself. Contact on Facebook or call places," Hedges says, "Demand drives business. Otherwise, they will not keep service here. Some of these businesses are not even aware. Again, I am driving this summer. I have other obligations, but I will offer this service most nights I am in town between 4pmCT and 9pmCT. I will work as much as possible that fits my schedule."

DoorDash allows restaurants to offer online ordering and delivery without having to invest in computer infrastructure, web design, or insurance and employees for delivery. Participating restaurants typically pay doordash a 15-40 percent commission on orders booked through the service. DoorDash drivers are paid some by DoorDash, and can receive additional tips from customers.

Hedges thinks DoorDash would provide "a modern service to Columbia, KY. You simply go online or your phone. There is a small delivery fee, but they offer some free delivery."
