DoorDash Superstar

DoorDash has invested in Burma Bites, a spin-off from Burma Superstar, the much-loved Bay Area mini chain. From SFChronicle’s Justin Phillips:

DoorDash declined to specify how much money it is investing in Burma Bites, but Georgie Thomas, head of regional merchant partnerships at the San Francisco delivery company, said in an email that COVID-19 “has accelerated the need for merchants” to establish their online presence in the Bay Area. Thomas said investing in Burma Bites is a way for the company to take its mission of increasing delivery sales for restaurants during the pandemic one step further.

It’s the latest move from DoorDash to put down some more brick and mortar roots — this follows opening its own grocery dark stores, and setting up a dark kitchen down near its HQ in Redwood City.
