Customers can now get their Sliders delivered straight to their door.

White Castle on Monday said that it has expanded its delivery partnership with DoorDash, making the service available at nearly 300 locations, or most of the company’s 381 U.S. units.

To market the service, DoorDash will offer free delivery for orders of $10 or more through Sunday, Aug. 5. No promotion code will be needed.

“This new partnership with DoorDash will take our delivery capabilities to the next level,” CEO Lisa Ingram said in a statement.

The service will be available through DoorDash’s online and mobile platforms, enabling customers to order White Castle’s Original Slider or other items such as its Veggie Slider.

Delivery is the single biggest trend in the restaurant business, as customers continue to demand convenience and third-party providers make it easier for chains to quickly add the service. Companies from White Castle to Cheesecake Factory have been quickly adding delivery over the past two years.
