DoorDash was once the smallest food delivery player in the US, until Softbank came along with its half a billion, helped it to knock Grubhub (the top and first player) off its leadership position and now has 50-60% of the US food delivery market.

DoorDash Continues to Dominate the US Food Delivery Market

- DoorDash reported better-than-expected revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021.

- DoorDash is yet to be profitable, which is a cause for concern.
DoorDash shares tumble as Amazon takes stake in Grubhub

The San Francisco-based startup tumbled as much as 11 per cent in New York trading, taking the stock down more than 70 per cent from the highs touched in November. Ride-hailing service Uber Technologies, which also has a food-delivery unit, fell over 4 per cent.

The Grubhub deal is part of a partnership where Amazon will offer US Prime users a 1-year membership to the food delivery service. Grubhub is owned by Just Eat, whose shares surged in Amsterdam on Wednesday.
