It Has Been a Long Time Coming

While this might be an exciting surprise to some, ALDI fans who were also DoorDash devotees have been asking for their favorite brands to partner up for quite a while now. “Since launching grocery in 2020, ALDI has been one of our consumers’ most highly requested grocers. We’re thrilled to welcome the beloved ALDI brand to DoorDash,” says Fuad Hannon, vice president of new verticals at DoorDash. “Our partnership with ALDI provides customers access to the retailer’s affordable staples and cult favorites with the speed and reliability of DoorDash. Additionally, consumers can consolidate all their shopping needs from fresh foods to household essentials on DoorDash as their one-stop shop.”

What You Should Know About ALDI

Those new to shopping at ALDI should know that this German grocery chain is quite different from the typical American grocery chain. It’s a bit more like Trader Joe’s but with better prices. And contrary to what many people believe, they are not owned by the same company. But just like Trader Joe’s, you won’t find lots of national brands, but rather mostly private label products at a cost that won’t break the bank, especially as the price of groceries seems to be rising everywhere.

Newbies should know there is a lot to try. One of the best places to start is the seafood department. ALDI is also known for having great prices on canned goods, olive oil, and even kombucha.
