McDonald'sMcDonald’s has finally – after 43 years, may I add – brought a home delivery service to UK, having previously launched similar services in places like the US, the Philippines, Malaysia and India.

This iteration of the McDelivery service comes in partnership with UberEats, the food delivery arm created by the popular transportation network. McDonald’s has initially launched a test of the service at various restaurants around London, Leeds and Nottingham. To be exact, there are 22 restaurants across London, seven in Nottingham, and three in Leeds.

Users that live within a mile and a half of the selected outlets will be able to order from the McDonald’s menu. The service will be available from 7am to 2am, satisfying people with their McDonald’s fix most of the day. Uber will charge each customer £2.50, regardless of how much they order.

“It’s no secret that we’ve been looking at bringing delivery to the UK, and we’re excited to confirm that this month we have gone live with UberEatS in 32 restaurants across Leeds, London and Nottingham, to offer delivery within one and a half miles of each of our participating restaurants,” a McDonald’s spokesperson told Mobile Marketing. “It’s very early stages, so while our restaurant teams familiarise themselves with the new process, we will be using the coming weeks and months to see what works and learn from what doesn’t.”
