Yes it's true, you’re now able to order McDonald's straight to your door. McDelivery is currently available in a select number of restaurants, ahead of being rolled out in many more locations later this year.

McDonald's is to roll out a long-awaited home delivery trial as UK consumers continue to embrace the rapidly expanding market.

The fast food giant said it was looking to launch a "small" delivery pilot this summer, with specific locations yet to be decided.

A McDonald's spokeswoman said: "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."

The announcement comes a week after KFC launched home deliveries across 30 restaurants in Greater London via the Just Eat platform.

The delivery sector jumped almost 10% to 599 million visits in Britain last year, while total visits out to restaurants and other dining venues rose by just 1%, according to analysts NPD Group.

The study found the average bill for delivered food is nearly £1 lower than for a meal eaten on the premises.

The delivery channel was worth £3.6 billion last year, a 6% increase on 2015 and 50% more than in 2008.

Cyril Lavenant, foodservice director for the UK at the NPD Group, said ordering ready-to-eat food for delivery via an app or by phone "is growing so fast that 'eating in' is becoming the new 'eating out'". oO

You might want to change the header to read delivery rather than takeaway
Yeah I always thought they did takeaway meals X)
Surprised it took them this long to launch (or trial) deliveries to be honest.

Confirmed now though (_;)
How they can deliver to home if even inside mc when you place your order and it reaches table is already cold. It's some sort of joke if they planning to deliver to home... And mc is on every corner... If you want to eat mc don't be fking lazy and move your body to nearest store.

We need at least one or more whole countries to immigrate to UK to deliver all the fast food that people want, cater for food and drink, wait for the eaters, wash the dishes, recycle the takeaway cartons and pizza boxes, make the burgers, roll the buns...

If not, you can probably ask for that in Burger King.

To make room, the UK could export all the call centre staff overseas.

Oh.

Really? What did you think your local takeaways did? Waited on your doorstep while cooking a burger on a portable stove? The practice of takeaways delivering isn't exactly new...

It takes them that long?

Kind of ruins the business model if they have thrown your order away as rubbish before reaching your home to deliver it.

Ah, that's what they meant by "rapidly expanding market"

You mean they won't bring the ketchup tap to my house?
Loads of services already deliver McDonald's to your door so I guess as they have seen delivery companies collecting more and more they now acknowledge it's advantages. I knew I was on to a good thing years ago when I had a job interview at MDs

Or save fuel and get it delivered

At least they'll be out of sight with this
This'll help bring the jobless figures down I guess. Probably be on zero hour contracts.
Yay, cold soggy chips! X)
Yippie - even colder big macs costing even more than they charge instore! X)
Bloody hell, fat hating and even some misguided anti immigrant nonsense, order a burger or don't. We've had fast food delivery for decades, I don't think McD's trialling the idea is the end of civilisation.

They should name it as Mcfreezing as that's how it will come to your door as they can't give it over the counter hot
COLD DEAL

deeky

Hello, I think you don't eat enough McDonald's or u would know that, where n when are the competitions?

You're getting them mixed up with Burger King, the masters of stone cold burgers.

No delivery for me, probably for the best.

You're right, I don't eat many takeaways, I can't afford them on my wages

What competitions?
