DoorDash offers delivery

 The Army & Air Force Exchange Service and DoorDash, the nation’s leading on-demand local logistics platform, are serving up convenience and tastes of home to Soldiers and their families. When the new service began on April 5, Fort Hood became the first Army post in the United States to have on-demand meal delivery.

“This is a great addition that will provide even more convenience for diners,” Col. Jason Wesbrock, Fort Hood Garrison commander, said. “From the single Soldier living in the barracks to military families living on the installation, mealtime planning just got much easier.”

DoorDash will offer delivery from Fort Hood Exchange restaurants including:

• Charleys

• Qdoba

• Burger King

• Subway

• Boston Market

• Arby’s

• Slim Chickens

• Popeyes

“The Exchange is all in to strengthen Quality of Life support at Fort Hood,” Chris Haefner, Fort Hood Exchange general manager, said. “We are looking forward to making food delivery a success at the Great Place as evaluation of opportunities to expand food delivery service to other installations continues.”

Diners can place an order on www.doordash.com or via the DoorDash app for iOS or Android.
