PHOENIX — McDonald’s lovers, rejoice: Fans of the fast food joint in Phoenix will soon be able to get their food delivered straight to their door with the push of a button.
According to Investor’s Business Daily, McDonald’s will now offer a delivery service through UberEats, an online mobile application linked through the ride-sharing service Uber.
The service has been expanded to Los Angeles, Chicago and Columbus, Ohio, in addition to Phoenix. The expansion means delivery is offered at 1,000 restaurants across the country, including 300 in the L.A.-area alone.
The fast food chain first tested out the service in Miami, Orlando and Tampa in Florida earlier this year.
Customers will have to pay for the food, as well as a delivery fee. It is generally $5, but it varies per city and delivery time.
In a statement, McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook pointed to the expansion as the restaurant’s way of “bringing a new level of convenience to more of our customers as we continue to transform the McDonald’s experience.”
McDonald’s has not only taken steps to revolutionize their customers’ experience outside of the restaurant, but inside as well.
Inc.com reported on Wednesday that McDonald’s is “planning to completely revamp its entire in-store experience,” with upgrades that include self-order kiosks, upgraded dessert counters, new uniforms and table-locator technology so employees can serve food directly to the table.
The move marks an effort by top officials to win back customers after the company saw a slight decline in sales at the beginning of the year.
This is not the only new change McDonald’s has made recently: The fast food chain started offering a ‘frork’ utensil — a fork made out of fries — to promote its new burgers.
