My Favorites
Chamber Chomps, a fun initiative through the Hartford Chamber of Commerce, is now sponsored by DoorDash! The initiative supports Hartford businesses by delivering local favorites to our community—and putting smiles on faces! We’re thrilled to have the collaboration with online food delivery company DoorDash.
If your business wants to get involved—to have food delivered from your restaurant or delicious locally made treats delivered to you—email Shannon Mumley, Director of Small Business Development for the Hartford Chamber of Commerce.

To learn more about DoorDash, you can read their blog, which describes the new pricing structure, beginning with a basic plan at 15% commission.

DoorDash has incorporated new features, like transparency for merchant partners, and different pricing options to improve the service they provide to restaurants.

In addition, DoorDash has a Community Credit Grants Program where DoorDash donates digital gift cards to nonprofits supporting communities in need.

Entrepreneurship and Access

DoorDash prioritizes supporting historically marginalized communities as an ongoing effort that demands thoughtful, meaningful action. DoorDash is committed to taking action through their product, platform, and resources.

DoorDash supports women, immigrant, and people of color-owned businesses

Launched in 2019, the entrepreneurship and access programs support entrepreneurs from historically marginalized communities with access to capital, connection to capacity-building resources, and marketing support from DoorDash. To date, Kitchens Without Borders, Made by Women, and Black-owned business programs have supported over 2,000 entrepreneurs.

In-app promotion

DoorDash makes it easy for customers to find and order from Black-owned businesses by searching “Black-owned” in the app or online.

Access to capital

 Through a partnership with Kiva, Black-owned restaurants on our platform are eligible for a 0% interest loan matched by DoorDash.

Legal and Marketing Support

Through a partnership with Start Small Think Big, restaurants can receive 1:1 advising and technical assistance.

In 2021 DoorDash launched the Main Street Strong Accelerator in partnership with Accion Opportunity Fund. We provided $2M in grants to 100 business owners across the country, along with an 8-week training program to support restaurateurs for the long term. Learn more.
