You can now order a Big Mac and have it delivered to your door. As the source explains, nearly 200 restaurants in Florida - specifically in Orlando, Tampa, and Miami - will begin offering a home delivery option through UberEATS in the new year. The delivery and service fees, however, can run higher than most items on McDonald's menu.
The service will be tested in January 2017 at almost 200 restaurants in Miami, Orlando and Tampa; the company hopes to roll it out to the rest of the US and certain global markets - including Australia, Canada, France and the United Kingdom - by 2018.
Restaurants like Starbucks,Taco Bell and Domino's have already seen a bump in sales and consumer engagement due to their mobile apps, which offer order-to-pay options and loyalty programs.
In November, McDonald's announced it would be offering custom orders and table service as well as self-service kiosks, mobile payments, and "smart" menu boards.
The world's largest restaurant chain has partnered with UberEATS to begin food delivery.
The new service will allow customers to place orders through UberEATS app or website.
Becca said McDonald's plans to get feedback from Florida customers to decide whether to expand delivery services in the future.
However, Business Insider reports that the rollout will spread to other countries, including Canada, France, the United Kingdom, and Australia. By 2018, the service is expected to be available at up to 25,000 restaurants worldwide. The Chicago Tribune reported that UberEATS had not yet commented on this particular matter. A person familiar with the plan said the deal has not yet been signed.
McDonald's app will launch in the US 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.
