McDonald’s restaurants home delivery service is being expanded across Australia following the success of the first trial in Sydney’s North Parramatta.
McDonald’s Australia selected North Parramatta as the testing ground for a $25-minimum home delivery service in November last year, earning the wrath of nutritionist Rosemary Stanton and anti-obesity policy worker Jane Martin who pointed out the area around North Parramatta already had one of NSW’s highest obesity rates.
According to Menulog – the website driving McDonald’s home delivery services states the worldwide burger chain’s menu has become the most popular home delivery option in North Paraamatta. Online reviews of the service have been mixed, with some customers complaining about “stale chips” and long wait times.
McDonald’s confirmed the first McDelivery services would begin in Victoria (South Melbourne), in Western Australia (Karratha) and in Queensland (Hervey Bay) at the end of August.
A spokesperson for McDonald’s Australia said the company was responding to customer demand. “Australians have enjoyed the convenience of restaurant home delivery for decades and our customers have often said they like the idea of [McDonald’s] delivery so we’re currently trialling it in a number of our restaurants. We will look to extend the service once these trials are completed.”
So for those who want to order, it’s a minimum $25 spend. Get ready for the extra weight gain people!
