DoorDash will now deliver anything from 7-Eleven to you, except for alcohol and Slurpees.

DoorDash may have tested delivery for Taco Bell and Whataburger, but now they are moving to the next level with deliveries from 7-Eleven.

The startup began offering the service at more than 200 stores in Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles September 1. DoorDash has plans to expand delivery to stores in Boston and Washington, D.C., in the next few weeks.

“Our mission has been to give customers what they want, when and where they want it,” Raja Doddala, 7-Eleven’s VP of innovation and omnichannel strategy, said in the press release. “Today we want to extend that to where people actually are: smartphones.”

This means that customers could order hot dogs, candy, and batteries, if they wanted to. The only items that cannot be delivered are alcohol and Slurpees.

Although alcohol delivery does exist for other venues — Amazon Prime Now is in the process of testing it out — Doddala noted in the press release that it’s “too complicated to put it in this launch, but it’s something we’re working on.” Slurpees cannot be delivered because “they don’t travel well.”
