DoorDash Inc. (NYSE: DASH) is benefiting from growing delivery services amid the trend of closing shops and restaurants during the pandemic. It is likely, however, that the pandemic will end soon. Does this affect DoorDash’s business in any way?
While restaurants in the United States have largely resumed normal operations, many people don’t seem eager to change the habits established in the past few months. The number of people returning to restaurants in the same way they did before the pandemic will likely take longer. The result is a favorable environment for DoorDash, which will continue to accept orders for food delivery. The company’s revenue increased to $ 1.1 billion from $ 362 million in the same quarter last year.
It is no secret that DoorDash Inc. (NYSE: DASH) will grow in the future through food delivery and, more importantly, by adding new services. Particularly the delivery of groceries and everyday items from stores. The two emerging directions open up new opportunities. DoorDash estimates that they are worth $225 billion and $900 billion, respectively. The company has insignificant shares in both these areas at the moment. Within the next few years, DoorDash could see more than 500% revenue growth if they manage to capture at least 5 % of the grocery and FMCG markets.
Despite DoorDash’s triple-digit revenue growth, its net profit remained at $ 110 million. There is a high volume (up to 15%) of orders worth less than $100. It is important to maintain the company’s existing client base to utilize its services more often. In terms of long-term profitability, adding new categories is a step in the right direction.
