Doorman was founded in 2013 by Zander Adell and Kapil Israni. The company managed and operated fulfillment centers and independent driver fleets in densely-populated urban areas, addressing the last mile gap between online retailers and their customers.
The company developed, marketed and operated the Doorman mobile app, which allowed consumers to use their iOS or Android-based smartphone to schedule evening delivery of goods purchased online, or arrange pick up of goods intended to be shipped back to an online retailer. Doorman also offered direct-to-consumer e-commerce fulfillment and same-day package delivery services for brands, through the use of its API.
In addition to securing an investment from Robert Herjavec on Shark Tank, Doorman also raised $3.37 million in venture capital. Citing financial difficulties and operating at a loss, Doorman ceased to operate on October 6, 2017.
