McDonald's partners with UberEats to offer home delivery

Fast food chain McDonald's is now available to order through UberEats around London, Nottingham and Leeds.

The delivery service, called McDelivery, will be available from 7am to 2am and includes the breakfast menu.

McDelivery will be trialled in 22 locations around London and 10 across Nottingham and Leeds with the possibility to branch out further. Deliveries can currently be made by UberEats delivery drivers to any address within 1.5 miles of a McDonald's restaurant.

Claude Abi-Gerges, a McDonald's franchisee who has five London outlets taking part in the trial, said the service would give customers a "new level of convenience".

Mathieu Proust, general manager of UberEats, said: "We're excited to be working with McDonald's to begin delivery of their food for the first time in the UK.

"Our technology means people can get the food they want with the speed and reliability they've come to expect from Uber."

UberEats is currently available in 14 cities around the UK. Standard delivery charge is £2.50.
