A fast-food leader is expanding the reach of on-demand delivery with help from an established mobile platform.

Burger King is partnering with Uber Eats to provide on-demand delivery service across the U.S. Customers can now place orders for a selection of items from participating Burger King restaurants via the Uber Eats app. 

“At Burger King restaurants, delivery is a major priority to ensure our food is available to anyone, anywhere,” said Chris Finazzo, president, North America, Burger King Corp. “We know our guests value convenience and adding the Burger King brand to Uber Eats is another way we will meet the demands of millions of people on this platform.”

“We’re thrilled to team up with Burger King restaurants to offer their beloved menu items to Uber Eats customers across the country,” said Janelle Sallenave, head of Uber Eats, U.S. & Canada. “A long history of innovation coupled with high-quality delicious food and brilliant marketing makes BK a perfect addition to Uber Eats.”

Burger King is going national with mobile delivery as its chief competitor McDonald’s has been busily expanding its own McDelivery on-demand delivery service. Launched in partnership with UberEats in 2017, McDelivery is now available in more than 10,000 McDonald’s restaurants across all 50 states, with additional partners including DoorDash and Grubhub.

Through Oct. 27, 2019, Uber Eats is offering free delivery (with taxes, service fee, and small order fee still applying) on orders of $15 or more.
