McDonald's Is Bringing the Drive-Thru to You With McDelivery

McDonald's Is Bringing the Drive-Thru to You With McDelivery

Now McDelivery on UberEATS is available at more than 375 McDonald's restaurants throughout Los Angeles County, Orange County and Riverside County. McDonald's started testing delivery in several Florida cities in January, and said last month it planned to roll it out "to a number of USA cities this quarter".

Uproxx also speculates on what McDonald's delivery might mean down the road since its widespread proliferation would be a paradigm changer for fast food, but that's still a little way in the future.

McDonald's started testing delivery in several Florida cities in January, and customers have been pleased with the quality of food and services, the company added. The company says it plans expand to additional cities in the coming months. With a $5 booking fee from Uber, an Egg McMuffin meal cost about $11 when delivered by the auto service - and more if you tip the courier, or if your delivery is in a busy area. The strongest markets being Asia and the Middle east, where top delivery restaurants generate up to 40 percent of their sales from the service.

That low-priced move redirected the attacks to MalwareTech's server, which operates as a "sinkhole" to keep malware from escaping. These are all names for the world's largest ever ransomware development, in which 150 countries hosted more than 200,000 attacks.

"McDonald's restaurant footprint, combined with the cutting-edge innovation of the UberEATS platform, positions us well to meet the consumer demand for fast and reliable delivery - making this an ideal partnership", McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook said in a statement. "We're thrilled to partner with McDonald's to give fans in Southern California easy access to their McDonald's favorites at the tap of a button", said Allen Narcisse, General Manager of UberEATS Southern California.

But in most cases, McDonald's operates its own delivery service.

UberEats is set to deliver more from the Golden Arches.
