The CEO of McDonalds has announced it has extended its UberEATS food delivery service to an additional 1000 restaurants in the US this week and that by the end of June it will reach 3500 US restaurants.
McDonalds President and Chief Executive Officer, Steve Easterbrook was speaking at the Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference in New York. He said that the ‘McDelivery’ service is currently available at more than 2000 restaurants around the US.
The new locations which came online this week include: the New York Metro Area (with 300 participating restaurants), Fresno (28), Seattle (92), Denver (98), Dallas (217), Houston (115), San Antonio (49) and Washington D.C. (121). McDelivery is also available from restaurants in Atlanta (143), Chicago (270), Columbus (59), Las Vegas (76), Los Angeles (374), Miami (164), Orlando (54), Phoenix (144), San Diego (83) and Tampa (29).
With nearly 75% of the population living within three miles of a McDonalds in their five largest markets, Easterbrook said there is “significant potential with delivery”.
Easterbrook commented: “We are encouraged by early results in the U.S where delivery is resonating well, particularly with our younger customers.
“Nearly 60% of orders are being placed during the evening or late night, providing our franchisees an opportunity to grow dayparts. And because speed matters, we’re getting food from order inception to the customer’s door in less than 30 minutes, on average.”
