An increasing number of McDonald’s customers don’t just want a cheap burger and fries—they want that meal deal delivered to their door. Thanks to a partnership with UberEats, the chain is pushing further into the burgeoning delivery sphere.

In other words, the brand is seeing significant enough returns—particularly from new consumers—to invest further in delivery with UberEats as its main partner for now.
