DoorDash co-founder and CEO Tony Xu said his company was interested in tapping into the Japanese market because its restaurant-heavy local economy presents a unique opportunity.

“We are excited to bring DoorDash to Japan. Our strategy has always been to empower the local economy, especially in suburban markets which have historically been underserved but have a high sense of connectivity between merchants and customers,” Xu said.

DoorDash hopes that its presence in Sendai, the capital city of Miyagi Prefecture with a population of 1 million people, can stimulate the local economy by connecting merchants and consumers.
