Craving McDonald’s? You Can Call Uber for That

McDonald’s has partnered with Uber’s food delivery service UberEATS to offer McNuggets (or anything else on the menu) on demand in four more US cities. 1,000 McDonald’s restaurants in Los Angeles, Chicago, Columbus and Phoenix will join several locations in Florida that already offer delivery through UberEATS.

The thought of getting a Big Mac delivered straight to your couch certainly sounds appealing, but be aware that it’ll cost you. UberEATS charges a $5 booking fee — about the same price as many of McDonald’s menu items. Add in tax and tip and an Egg McMuffin can end up costing you $11 which is a bit more than twice the price of the same order in the restaurant.

But, McDonald’s has proven that food delivery can drive profits. The fast food giant already runs a delivery service in many of its restaurants in Asia and the Middle East, which accounts for up to 40% of sales at those locations. According to Buzzfeed, the Golden Arches made nearly $1 billion in delivery sales in 2016. If you don’t happen to live in one of the cities that offers McDonald’s delivery, don’t fret — it’s said that it will be rolling out the service to more cities in the coming months.
