If getting Canada’s most popular fast food into your belly by driving up to a window and paying for it seems like too much effort, don’t worry, you won’t go hungry. Why? Because McDonald’s is now on UberEATS in major cities across the country, meaning you only have to go as far as your front door to grab your food.
UberEATS will now be delivering McDonald’s from 187 restaurants in Ottawa, Toronto (and the GTA), Edmonton and Montreal, and is planning on further extending its service in the coming months.
Here’s what that means: you can now order anything on the McDonald’s menu from your smartphone, with the exception of their soft-serve ice cream cones — which totally makes sense — and an Uber driver will deliver it right to your door. (Though, apparently, they’ll still deliver a McFlurry or sundae.)
The Uber-powered food delivery service has been around for a few years, and delivers meals from other fast food joints across the nation too, such as Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, Taco Time, Harvey’s, Quiznos Subs and more. Still, McDonald’s joining the delivery network feels like a game-changer, because even though we know it’s not the most healthy choice, the Big Mac and us go way back.
Despite how you feel about McD’s, one thing’s for certain: from now on, every Saturday morning, there will be a lot of hungover people thrilled to have egg McMuffins and piles of hash browns dropped off directly to their doorsteps.
