McDonald’s partners with Deliveroo
McDonald’s and Deliveroo recently announced a new, long-term global strategic partnership. They say it will evolve their existing agreement and provide customers with the convenience and value of McDelivery through the Deliveroo platform in markets across the world.
The partnership includes the UK, Deliveroo’s largest market, where McDelivery will become available via the delivery company during the second quarter. It is expected to cover a number of McDonald’s UK restaurants initially when it begins in the summer, with expansion across the country planned for later in the year.
Alistair Macrow, McDonald's UK and Ireland CEO, said: “More than 1,200 of our restaurants now offer deliver, and this offer continues to be incredibly popular with customers. We look forward to welcoming Deliveroo and their riders into our suite of McDelivery partners, enabling us to deliver directly to more of our customers across the UK.”
Carlo Mocci, Deliveroo’s chief business officer UKI, added: “We are delighted to be expanding our partnership with McDonald’s through this global agreement. Our mission is to become the definitive online food company and working with McDonald’s will help us to achieve this.”
