You can get McDonald's delivered to your door in January

Dec 17, 2016, 00:13

McDonald's said Thursday it will test delivery through UberEats in three Florida markets next year, a nod to the burger chain's hyperfocus on technology and growing its base of younger customers. The delivery and service fees, however, can run higher than most items on McDonald's menu.

The test, set to begin in late January, will span 200 restaurants in Orlando, Tampa and Miami, McDonald's said.

Customers will be able to use the UberEats website or mobile application to have their orders delivered by Uber drivers.

UberEATS now serves 50 cities worldwide. After that, the company will apparently decide where to go from there, and then make a determination on whether or not to expand the program.

"By 2018, mobile ordering will be available at 20,000 to 25,000 restaurants worldwide."

UberEats declined to comment. However, with a delivery fee of only $5 for UberEATS, the Chicago Tribune implies that it may be a more cost-efficient delivery option for McDonald's customers.

McDonald's app will launch in the USA and select global markets, like Canada, the U.K., France and Australia in 2017 and is expected to reach as many as 25,000 restaurants worldwide by 2018. Taco Bell, which partnered with DoorDash to offer the service in 2015, was the first, according to Business Insider. The approach has been a success for companies that have it, including Starbucks and Chik-fil-A, cutting customer wait times and improving the accuracy of orders.
