DoorDash Inc. is launching an ultrafast grocery delivery service that will be staffed by full-time workers with traditional employee benefits.

The new offering, which will be rolled out first in New York starting Monday, will allow customers to order anything from fresh produce and dry-goods to household products from the app and have it at their doorstep in 15 minutes or less. DoorDash will offer a $15 hourly wage and health insurance benefits for couriers operating the new rapid service.
