Hungover? Lazy evening? No time for a drive-thru run? No, no, don’t get out of bed or off the couch. Stay where you are, and let the McDonalds bag appear magically on your doorstep.
What was once a dream, is now a reality. Thanks to a new partnership with UberEATS, McDonalds locations across Canada are offering your favourite McMeals delivered straight to your door. Don’t want to drive down the street to get your Big Mac fix? No problem. Just order from your phone, and wait for a knock on the door. Because let’s get real; you really aren’t going to work off the extra calories later anyway.
The McDonalds/UberEATS partnership is bringing joy to doorsteps across Canada. Now available in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton, and Calgary, there are plans in the works for expansions to more Canadian cities. Edmontonians will get to be among the first to put the concept to the test. And thanks to the all-day breakfast rolled out back in February, you can have an Egg McMuffin any time you want, wherever you want.
While the convenience factor is great, McDonalds delivery is also a perfect way to manage the dilemma of a late-night snack after a few drinks. If you’re someone who likes to grab some fast food after a night out (and really, who doesn’t?) you don’t even have to worry about finding a ride, making your cab driver order for you, or piling your friends into your car and interpreting four drunken orders screamed simultaneously from the backseat. Instead, just enter what you want into the app, and you’re done.
Of course, convenience doesn’t come for free. You’ll have to pay a $4.99 delivery charge to UberEATS get your McDonald’s fix, and potentially higher charges during busy times (kind of like Uber’s surge pricing). So basically, if you’re going to get delivery, you’ll want to plan for some serious bingeing. Better yet, grab a few orders for your friends while you’re at it!
What do you think about McDonalds delivery? Is this a great idea, or just a newly achieved level of laziness in society?
