That’s because St. Patrick’s Day isn’t an official holiday and it’s not a holiday that’s based around food – it’s mainly based around going out to bars and drinking. As a result, while people may be ordering food, it likely won’t be specifically because it’s St. Patrick’s Day.
In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the question of – is DoorDash busy on St. Patrick’s Day. We’ll also look at some of the strategies you can use to maximize your earnings if you’re going to work on St. Patrick’s Day.
Is DoorDash Busy On St. Patrick’s Day?
You can generally expect DoorDash to be fairly busy on St. Patrick’s Day, but I wouldn’t go into it thinking that it’ll be extremely busy. While some people may order food on St. Patrick’s Day, for the most part, St. Patrick’s Day is not a food-based holiday.
If people are ordering food, it’ll usually be for the same reasons people order food on any other day – they’re hungry, and ordering delivery is more convenient and easier than preparing food or picking it up themselves.
Datapoints online seem to be a mixed bag about whether DoorDash is busy on St. Patrick’s Day. One Reddit thread, for example, has people saying St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t busy, while other people in the same thread said it was a busy day. Your experience, accordingly, may vary depending on where you live.
One thing to consider is that people may be ordering alcohol deliveries on St. Patrick’s Day. That means orders from liquor stores could be more prevalent. These orders can often pay well.
The Best Times To Dash On St. Patrick’s Day
If you want to work on St. Patrick’s Day, the best times to work will still be during the lunch and dinner hours. If St. Patrick’s Day is on a weekday, then stick near busy downtown areas where office workers may be ordering lunch. During the evening hours, the dinner rush should be as busy as any other day – and will likely be busier if St. Patrick’s Day falls on a weekend evening.
There’s also a possibility that DoorDash will be busy in the late evening as people return home from a night out. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend working in the late evening because the types of restaurants that are open late at night usually don’t pay well and will often require you to wait in long lines (for example, fast food restaurants are usually the only places open at night and have long lines after people leave bars and clubs).
In addition, delivering late at night to people who have been out partying can be problematic because people don’t answer their phones or give bad directions. In my experience, late-night deliveries are often more of a hassle than they are worth, so I tend to avoid them.
Stick to working during the lunch and dinner shifts and you should be able to maximize your DoorDash earnings on St. Patrick’s Day.
St. Patrick’s Day isn’t an official holiday, so while it can be busy, it generally should be about as busy as any other day. It also isn’t a food-based holiday, so ordering food isn’t something that people associate with St. Patrick’s Day.
If you want to maximize your earnings, try to work during the busiest hours, specifically during lunch and dinner. In addition, you may be able to maximize your earnings if you stay near liquor stores and accept alcohol deliveries. Those orders are often high-paying and worth doing.
