DoorDash, an on-demand delivery service for local restaurants, has raised around $35 million in new VC funding at a valuation of nearly $600 million, Fortune has learned.

Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers led the round, with partner John Doerr to join the DoorDash board of directors. (We’ll presume that Doerr is taking the board seat because of his personal belief in the business, and not simply because of the delicious name symmetry.)

DoorDash previously raised nearly $20 million, including a $17 million Series A round last May from Sequoia Capital, CRV, Khosla Ventures, Pejman Mar Ventures and Ted Zagat.

The Silicon Valley-based company currently operates in nine markets, including Chicago and three on the East Coast (Boston, Brooklyn and Washington, D.C.).

Fortune reached out to both DoorDash and Kleiner Perkins, but neither agreed to comment.
