McDonald's to add delivery at 500 restaurants next week

MCDONALD'S is adding home delivery as an option to another 500 restaurants next week.

It comes after the fast food chain reopened 934 restaurants for drive-thru, delivery or both across the UK over the last few days.

This includes 852 restaurants offering drive-thru only, 56 for delivery only and 26 offering both.

Currently, McDonald's fans are limited to home delivery and drive-thru if they want to get their Big Mac fix as restaurants remain closed for walk-in customers.

For delivery, orders will need to be placed through Uber Eats or Just Eat, depending on your lcoation – just keep in mind that you'll have to pay a delivery fee on top of your order.

It hasn't revealed which 500 restaurants will get delivery next week, but when it does we'll let you know.

The fast food chain has been reopening restaurants in stages, with cars seen waiting in three-hour long queues to get their Big Mac fix.

All reopened restaurants are running a limited menu and reduced operating hours of 11am to 10pm.

Sadly, the reduced hours means there are no breakfast options or milkshakes available.

As dining areas remain closed to customers, McDonald's fans can currently only order food through drive thrus or home delivery via Uber Eats.

Customers can also pre-order using the My McDonald's app if they plan on going through a drive thru.

McDonald's is also asking customers to spend no more than £25 at both drive-thrus and when ordering for home delivery, to try and control high demand.

Paul Pomroy, CEO McDonald's UK and Ireland, said: "Next week we will switch McDelivery back on in over 500 restaurants, with the help of our delivery partners Uber Eats and Just Eat.

"As with our Drive Thru operations, it might take a little longer and we expect demand to once again be high and both of these factors might impact service times.

"But I know you’ll continue to show the patience we’ve seen all week and I thank you again for your understanding."

It followed the 477 drive-thrus that reopened the previous day, June 3.

On June 2, McDonald's reopened 160 drive thrus.

In addition, McDonald's has also reopened 85 restaurants for drive-thru or delivery in the Republic of Ireland.
