PHILADELPHIA, June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether they are home, the office, or somewhere in between, McDonald's® customers in the Greater Philadelphia Region can now enjoy their favorite burgers, fries, beverages and desserts delivered right to them through UberEATS. McDelivery on UberEATS is available at 97 McDonald's restaurants throughout the Greater Philadelphia Region. To kick off the partnership, UberEATS and McDonald's delivered Happy Meals to children and families staying at the Ronald McDonald House on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. A special delivery is also being made to the Philadelphia Eagles front office staff and players during practice on Friday, June 9.
"We are excited to bring a new level of convenience and personalization to our customers in the Greater Philadelphia Region with UberEATS," said Charles Ehlers, President, McDonald's of the Greater Philadelphia Region Owner/Operator Association. "As part of McDonald's ongoing food journey, we are continuing to offer more ways for our customers to enjoy their favorite menu items."
Customers can now place McDonald's orders on the UberEATS mobile app or on UberEATS.com, using the same account they use to take Uber rides and track their order, as an UberEATS delivery partner brings their meal directly to them. The full menu at participating McDonald's restaurants will be available for delivery with the exception of soft serve cones. An UberEATS booking fee applies to each order.
"With UberEATS, you can get the food you want, where you want it, delivered at Uber speed. We're thrilled to partner with McDonald's to give fans in the Greater Philadelphia Region easy access to their McDonald's favorites at the tap of a button," said Casey Verkamp, General Manager, UberEATS Philadelphia. "People in the Greater Philadelphia Region search for McDonald's in the UberEATS app almost daily, so we're excited to expand our reach and deliver what they've been craving."
McDonald's recently announced that delivery with UberEATS is expanding to additional U.S. markets following a successful pilot in Florida earlier this year: it is now available from more than 2,000 restaurants in the U.S. and will grow to 3,500 by the end of June. Delivery is just one way that McDonald's is enhancing the customer experience through added convenience. McDonald's continues to transform the restaurant experience through the addition of self-order kiosks, table service and digital menu boards and will roll out mobile order and pay across its 14,000 U.S. restaurants later this year.
