THE golden arches can now be delivered at uber speed.
Maccas and UberEats have joined forces to launch McDelivery across Perth.
McDelivery will be available in 12 Perth restaurants by the end of the week, with more becoming available in coming months. A delivery booking fee of $5 applies to each order.
Uber-delivered Maccas will also carry a “slight price increase” compared with buying at the restaurant, but McDonald’s would not provide an example of how these would vary.
The launch of McDelivery in WA follows a successful launch in Melbourne this month.
McDelivery also becomes available across other Australian States from this week.
The Australian expansion follows a similar partnership at more than 2000 locations across the US.
McDonald’s WA market manager Brad McMullen said delivery was one of the top requests received from its customers.
“With a growing number of people using UberEats to get their favourite foods, they are the ideal partner for McDonald’s as we launch this service,” he said.
McDelivery will operate within a 10-minute delivery zone to ensure hot food.
Customers can choose from nearly a full range of menu items including McCafe coffee.
UberEats Asia Pacific general manager Simon Rossi said Perth people searched for McDonald’s in the UberEats app almost daily.
“Uber is excited to expand its reach and deliver what they’ve been craving,” he said.
“We are thrilled to partner with McDonald’s to give fans in Perth easy access to their McDonald’s favourites at the tap of a button.”
McDelivery will be available from restaurants at East Victoria Park, South Perth, Morley, William Street, Tuart Hill, Melville, Ascot Waters, Maylands, North Perth, Jolimont, Innaloo and Northbridge.
Last week, KFC announced a home-delivery trial in Sydney. If successful, that could be expanded across Australia.
