DoorDash has partnered with a Bay Area restaurant brand to open a brick and mortar store, Burma Bites.

Burma Bites’ parent brand, Burma Superstar, has been a DoorDash partner for over two years. Now, the restaurant brand and the food delivery app have teamed up to design a menu and kitchen optimized for delivery and pickup orders.

This partnership to build a physical store is a first for the food delivery platform.

According to a news release from DoorDash, the idea for Burma Bites first came out of increasing demand for Burma Superstar deliveries. With this new store, the brand will be able to deliver more food to Bay Area residents by creating a storefront that has equipment with “larger capacities” for takeout orders.
