McDonald's expanding delivery to parts of Ohio

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

McDonald's isn't the only chain experimenting with delivery. However, with UberEats's $5 delivery charge, the expense may outweigh the convenience. Among the selections include Tito's, Don Julio, Stella Artois and Dom Perignon. A driver will deliver the meal directly to you.

But McDonald's executives say that delivery is successful because the huge number of locations - it has 14,000 nationwide - doesn't leave much room for the food to get cold.

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. "We're getting great reviews (of the food)". We didn't know at the time which cities would be included in the expansion.

McDonald's is now catering to those who are too lazy to get up and drive through the drive-thru.

Karavites said he's also expecting higher sales at restaurants that offer delivery.

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

"We're talking about a customer that was going to stay home that day", he said.

The world's largest burger chain believes that "McDelivery" is a critical piece of its plan to win back lost customers.

"We're not testing; we're rolling out", McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook told reporters in March. Keep an eye on hos this trial run goes in these four cities, though, because it's not hard to imagine McDonald's and UberEATS moving quickly to expand the service if it proves popular.
