McDonalds will now deliver in New York, tri-state area

Get your Big Mac on demand.

McDonalds is launching delivery service in New York and throughout the Tri-State area on Wednesday.

The burger chain teamed up with UberEATS — an online meal order and delivery service that partners with restaurants around the world — to bring faster food from more than 300 select Mickey D’s locations to homes in New York City, Westchester, Connecticut and New Jersey .

“Customers have been vocal that they want the added convenience of delivery to make enjoying their favorite McDonald’s meal even easier,” McDonald’s spokesman Bill Garrett told the News in a statement.

Customers can simply place orders for McDelivery on the UberEATs mobile app or website, UberEATS.com, using the same account as you would to request an Uber car ride.

The closest location will prepare the order, and an Uber driver will pick it up for a flat booking fee and deliver it on demand.

McDonald’s has been testing the delivery service at restaurants in Florida since last year, and other chain restaurants are jumping on the fast food trend as well. Denny’s announced on Tuesday it’s partnering with digital ordering company Olo so eaters can order pancakes, milkshakes and burgers from their smartphones. They’ve also implemented special carry-out containers to prevent food from getting soggy. Taco Bell and Wendy’s also now deliver to select areas.
