McDonald's to start delivery service in Florida through UberEATS

Lawsuit claims deal is a rip-off

 

Now getting your fast-food fix will be “uber” fast. McDonald’s is teaming up with UberEats to test home delivery in select Florida markets.

Approximately 200 restaurants in Orlando, Tampa, and Miami will be accepting digital orders through the UberEATS website or mobile app starting late January.

UberEATS is the food delivery subsidiary of the Uber car service that currently operates in 50 cities around the world. If the test run is successful, people could soon be ordering McNuggets and fries right to their door all over the U.S. and beyond.

Thought the UberEATS partnership is a first for McDonald's, the golden arches chain already offers delivery service through Postmates in major metro areas like Washington, D.C. and New York City. 

Digital delivery is the latest technological upgrade to come to McDonald’s. Earlier this year, the fast-food chain introduced self-serving kiosks and table service.

McDonald’s will also be launching a mobile app in 2018, following the mobile app success of other companies like Starbucks, Chipotle, and Dunkin’ Donuts.
