Is DoorDash busy on Black Friday? In short, the answer is yes, DoorDash can be busy on Black Friday. Indeed, DoorDash has listed Black Friday as one of their top 10 busiest holidays in official posts they’ve released on their website.
In my experience, the entirety of Black Friday is similar to how busy DoorDash is on a good weekend. Most people are off work and are treating themselves. And because of this, a lot of people are ordering food.
With that said, in this post, we’ll look at why DoorDash is busy on Black Friday and discuss the best times to work.
Is DoorDash Busy On Black Friday?
As explained in the introduction to this post, DoorDash is typically busy on Black Friday, coming in as one of the top 10 busiest holidays for DoorDash.
This makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Many people have the day off, so it essentially becomes a weekend day for a lot of people. That means people are looking to treat themselves and have food delivered to them.
I think of Black Friday as similar to a busy weekend day. People are home. They’re ordering food. And restaurants are busy and open. Some of the best days I’ve had on DoorDash have been from delivering food the day after Thanksgiving. So, if you’re looking to make money on DoorDash, Black Friday is a great time to do it.
Best Times To Do DoorDash On Black Friday
The best times to do DoorDash on Black Friday are similar to most days. You want to aim to work during the lunch and dinner hours.
However, Black Friday is unique because it’s more like a weekend day than a regular Friday. That means, for the most part, it can stay busy throughout the day, not just during the prime lunch and dinner hours. You’ll still likely make the most money if you concentrate on the lunch and dinner rush, but you should be able to stay busy most of the day.
Of course, all of the other basic strategies and principles apply if you want to make the most money on DoorDash. Be strategic with the orders you accept. Work during prime hours. And of course, multi-app if you can, rather than relying only on DoorDash (that means sign up for both Uber Eats and Grubhub, and whatever other apps are available in your city).
You can expect that DoorDash will be busy on Black Friday. Not only is it a busy retail day, but it’s also a busy day for restaurants. A lot of people are home with family and after spending so much time cooking and preparing food for Thanksgiving, many people just want to sit back and get food delivered to them.
If you want to make extra money, Black Friday is a good day to get out there and do some deliveries.
