McDonald’s Delivery Available via UberEATS Mobile Ordering Platform in Florida
MIAMI, FL – UberEATS and McDonald’s are partnering to test delivery from more than 200 restaurants throughout Miami, Orlando, and Tampa Bay. Whether they are at the office, at home, or somewhere in between, McDonald’s fans in select areas of these cities can now enjoy their favorite burgers, sandwiches, salads, sides, beverages and desserts delivered right to their door via UberEATS.
Today, Monday, Jan. 30, McDonald’s and UberEATS will be surprising consumers at locations throughout Miami with free McDelivery. A caravan of approximately 30 UberEATS delivery partners will converge at the Concord McDonald’s restaurant, at 11301 SW 40th Street at 10:00 a.m., then depart to load up on menu items to deliver to consumers at various locations including Ocean Drive (South Beach); Little Havana; Barry University; and Miami Dade College Downtown Campus. Each selected delivery location will feature complimentary food as well as fun giveaway items from noon to 1:30 p.m.
“We are excited to bring a new level of convenience and personalization to our customers in Florida through this test with UberEATS,” said Pam Williams, Director of Growth Platforms for McDonald’s USA. “A growing number of people are using UberEATS today to get their favorite foods making them an ideal partner for McDonald’s. We look forward to learning from this test as we continue to elevate the McDonald’s experience.”
“With UberEATS, you can get the food you want, where you want it, delivered at Uber speed. We’re thrilled to partner with McDonald’s to give fans in Florida easy access to their McDonald’s favorites at the tap of a button,” said Peter Hsu, UberEATS Florida General Manager. “People in Florida search for McDonald’s in the UberEATS app almost daily, so we’re excited to expand our reach and deliver what they’ve been craving.”
Customers can place McDonald’s orders via the UberEATS mobile app or at UberEATS.com, using the same account they use to take Uber rides and track their order as an UberEATS delivery partner brings their meals directly to them. The full menu at participating McDonald’s Florida restaurants will be available for delivery with the exception of soft serve cones. McPick 2 and other promotional pricing offers may be excluded from delivery. An UberEATS booking fee applies to each order.
This Florida delivery test is the latest innovation for McDonald’s which recently announced that mobile pay and ordering will begin rolling out this year at McDonald’s in the U.S. as well as other lead markets. In addition, McDonald’s is innovating its customer experience by adding self-order kiosks, table service and digital menu boards to additional U.S. markets this year.
“Consumers in Florida are experiencing the future of McDonald’s today and we are excited to offer our customers even more convenience through this test with UberEATS,” said Alex Menendez, whose family owns and operates 17 McDonald’s restaurants in the Miami-Dade area. “Be it technology, table service, a modernized restaurant, these are enhancements that our customers appreciate.”
McDonald’s is the world’s leading global foodservice retailer with over 36,000 locations in over 100 countries. More than 85 percent of McDonald’s restaurants worldwide are owned and operated by independent local business men and women. There are nearly 900 McDonald’s restaurants in Florida, serving more than one million customers daily. There are 192 McDonald’s restaurants in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
UberEATS is Uber’s stand-alone meal delivery app that makes getting food as easy as requesting a ride, whether you’re at home, the office, or the park. Uber is leveraging its technology and expanding its driver partner network to deliver food to hungry customers who can track their order, get an upfront delivery time, and use the same account they use to take rides. What started in 2014 as a small delivery pilot in Los Angeles has now become its own stand-alone app with a maturing delivery service in 58 cities around the globe. The UberEATS app launched in Miami in July 2016 and gradually expanded by popular demand to Tampa in September 2016 and Orlando in November 2016.
