McDonald's expands delivery partnership with UberEats

Posted May 18, 2017

McDonald's said that more cities will be able to order delivery from the company in the future.

Previously, McDonald's had made delivery available to about 200 restaurants in Orlando, Tampa and Miami. With a $5 booking fee from Uber, an Egg McMuffin meal cost about $11 when delivered by the auto service - and more if you tip the courier, or if your delivery is in a busy area.

The fast-food chain is partnering UberEATS.

Globally, McDonald's is already one of the largest providers of delivered food in the world and has over two decades of experience in delivery.

But Abbas will be encouraged that Trump did not publicly demand that the Palestinians cut funding to prisoners and their families. Hamas has dismissed Abbas's strategy of negotiations as a waste of time and said he does not represent the Palestinians.

Starting today, the service expands to 300 restaurants in Los Angeles, 267 in Chicago, 59 in Columbus, and 144 in Phoenix.

"We're not testing; we're rolling out", McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook told reporters in March.

"Through delivery, we'll bring the McDonald's experience to more customers, whether it's in their homes, their dorm rooms, to their workplace and beyond", Easterbrook said at the time.

While delivery is clearly a compelling option to offer, it isn't a simple service for restaurants to add. Customers often spend less when ordering delivery, especially at casual dining chains that rely on alcohol orders to drive sales.

Pittsburgh was held to 18 even-strength shots over the course of its game, with an additional 10 coming during five power plays. A series of unlikely and freakish events can conspire to lead a largely unheralded team to a surprising Stanley Cup title.

The McDonald's outlets will now be linked to the UberEATS app which delivers curated menus from local restaurants to the customer's doorsteps for a minimal food delivery charge of $5.

The move marks an effort by top officials to win back customers after the company saw a slight decline in sales at the beginning of the year.

Delivery could be a new driver of McDonald's revenue growth.
