Will DoorDash take over QuickFoxes and UberEats as Charleston’s first choice for food delivery? According to Recode, “Compared to others in the space, DoorDash has developed a reputation for smarts around how to manage the many factors that make a delivery reliable — how long it takes to prepare food, how many people to keep on call based on irregular demand, which ‘dasher’ is best to pick up an order and deliver it, what mode of transportation the dasher should take, etc.”
