Food giant's delivery service expands

McDonald's partners with Uber Eats to offer delivery in Columbus

McDonald's isn't the only chain experimenting with delivery. UberEats expanded the "McDelivery" option to Los Angeles and several other cities on Wednesday. Among the selections include Tito's, Don Julio, Stella Artois and Dom Perignon.

Jason Droegof Uber said the company is "thrilled to expand partnership with McDonald's in the USA to bring the ease and reliability of Uber's technology to deliver customer's favourite menu items".

"When we first started considering delivery, food quality was our top concern", said Bill Garrett, McDonald's vice president of global delivery. The full menu at participating McDonald's restaurants will be available for delivery with the exception of soft serve cones.

Delivery has rapidly become the largest single trend in the restaurant industry, as chains race to bring the service to their restaurants around the country.

And this is just the beginning, McDonald's added. McDonald's is in a race with its primary competitors, Burger King and Wendy's, to expand delivery.

ABOUT UberEATS UberEATS is Uber's stand-alone meal delivery app that makes getting food as easy as requesting a ride, whether you're at home, the office, or the park.

McDonald's has not only taken steps to revolutionize their customers' experience outside of the restaurant, but inside as well.

'We are bringing a new level of convenience to more of our customers as we continue to transform the McDonald's experience, ' McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook said in a statement.

Almost 75 percent of the US population lives within three miles of a McDonald's restaurant, according to the company.
