McDonald’s kicks off home delivery service

mcdonaldsMcDonald’s has today kicked off its partnership with food delivery service,UberEats, in a move described by the fast food giant as its latest customer-led innovation.

“To remain relevant to our customers, we have to change and adapt with their preferences faster than ever before,” said Dave Howse, managing director of McDonald’s New Zealand, who added ‘McDelivery’ was prompted by customer feedback.

“The introduction of our delivery trial last year proved to be very popular, and we’ve had many requests to expand the service,” adds Howse.

“By partnering with UberEATS we’re able to extend the availability of McDelivery, providing our customers with the food they love and new levels of convenience.”

Over the last two years, McDonald’s has also introduced a cafe option to its drive-through; moved to free range eggs; and started offering table service.

McDelivery via UberEATS will initially be available from McDonald’s Greenlane restaurant, with more Auckland locations set to be announced within coming weeks.

The fast food chain said delivery will operate within a 10-minute zone to ensure food is hot when it arrives.

“Since we launched UberEATS in Auckland earlier this year, we’ve been overwhelmed by the way local residents have embraced a new way to get the food they love,” said Simon Rossi, general manager of UberEATS ANZ.
