McDonald’s expands McDelivery with new partnership

The fast-food giant is offering on-demand delivery from DoorDash at thousands of stores across the country.

Following a successful 200-restaurant pilot launched in July 2019 in Houston, McDonald’s will offer DoorDash as an option for its McDelivery online and mobile delivery service. Launched in partnership with UberEats in 2017, McDelivery will now be available in more than 10,000 restaurants across all 50 states, including locations in small- and mid-sized cities. McDonald’s expects McDelivery to be a $4 billion business for both corporate and franchise restaurants globally in 2019.

Customers will be able to place their McDonald’s orders through the DoorDash mobile app or website. McDonald’s is also a part of DashPass, DoorDash’s nationwide subscription program. For $9.99 a month, DashPass offers its members unlimited free delivery on orders $12 dollars or more from participating restaurants.

“At McDonalds, we’re always working to enhance our customer’s experience and offer new levels of convenience for our customers to get their favorite McDonald’s menu items whenever and wherever they want by dining in our newly modernized restaurants, on-the-go through mobile order and pay, the drive-thru, or McDelivery,” said Bill Garrett, McDonald’s senior VP of operations. “Since we launched McDelivery in the U.S. in 2017, we have seen customers respond well to the convenience and are excited for our customers to have the choice to use DoorDash, which is available in all 50 states and reaches 80% of Americans.”
