TOKYO (Reuters) – U.S. food delivery company DoorDash Inc, which is backed by SoftBank Group Corp, on Wednesday announced the launch of services in Japan, joining an increasingly crowded market that developed during the pandemic of COVID-19.
Services will initially be limited to the city of Sendai in Miyagi Prefecture, the money-losing delivery company told reporters, in a step following expansion into Canada and Australia.
SoftBank already supports some of the largest delivery services in Japan, such as Uber Eats from Uber Technologies (NYSE 🙂 Inc and Demae-can Co Ltd.
