Customers in New York City will be able to enjoy the McDonald's food they love when and where they want it with the launch of a McDonald's delivery test with Postmates, a direct-to-consumer delivery service. Customers in select boroughs can go to Postmates.com or download the Postmates mobile app (available for iOS and Android) to order their favorite McDonald's food for delivery within an hour. The test involves 88 select McDonald's restaurants in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn.
"This is a city where delivery is a way of life," said Mwaffak Kanjee, vice president, general manager of the McDonald's New York Metro region. "We are excited to launch this test so our customers can get hot, freshly prepared food right from McDonald's kitchens, when and where they want it."
McDonald's full menu, except ice cream cones, will be available for delivery during the normal operating hours of participating restaurants. Certain restaurants will offer delivery 24 hours a day. There will be a delivery fee calculated based on the geographic distance traveled by the courier as well as a standard service charge.
"Our customers continue to tell us that they want their favorites from McDonald's delivered right to their doorsteps," said Julia Vander Ploeg, vice president of McDonald's USA Digital. "We've listened to their feedback and are excited to launch this initiative. We look forward to learning from this test and continuing to innovate as we offer our customers everyday conveniences and new ways to experience our brand."
