McDonalds announce trial UK home delivery

26 April 2017

It’s the news every stoner, fast food fanatic and probably just human beings have been looking for: McDonald’s is finally going to start delivering food in the UK.

The UK chief executive of Maccy’s, Paul Pomroy has announced that the company will look to begin trialling the service in June, in a bid to join the likes of Deliveroo and Uber Eats in a growing delivery meeting.

He said, “What’s obvious to us now is that customers now would like McDonald’s to look at delivery. The market’s growing – I’ve been looking at that market for 18 months now – customers are starting to ask us when McDonald’s are doing delivery.

“We think we’re going to start probably in June. We’ll start in a small, controlled way.”

It comes after McDonalds saw a surprise rise in profits, after changing the Big Mac in the US and is already experimenting with delivery in other territories.

“It is no secret we have been looking at the potential of delivery in recent months. This service is offered in other markets around the world and its growth within the UK, continues to gather pace,” added a McDonald’s spokesperson.

“Listening to our customers, we know that this is a route they would like us to explore, and I can confirm that we are looking to launch a small delivery pilot this summer.”
