McDonald’s launches home deliveries in the UK

McDonald’s has launched its home delivery service ‘McDelivery’ for the first time in the UK in partnership with Uber’s takeaway service, UberEats.

The global fast food chain is trialling its home delivery service in parts of London, Nottingham and Leeds before deciding whether to roll it out across the UK.

The move comes after similar tie-ups with Uber in the US, while McDonald’s already delivers in countries such as China, Egypt and Singapore.

Customers will be able to order food through the UberEats app, which then uses Uber couriers to deliver the food.

McDelivery is available on breakfast, lunch and dinner menus from 7am to 2am, although customers must live within 1.5 miles of restaurants in the trial.

Mathieu Proust, general manager of UberEats, said: “We’re excited to be working with McDonald’s to begin delivery of their food for the first time in the UK.

“Our technology means people can get the food they want with the speed and reliability they’ve come to expect from Uber.”
