Just a couple weeks after Chipotle announced that it would team up with Postmates to roll out burrito delivery across the country, McDonald's is testing out a partnership with the app-based delivery service in New York City. Today, the same day that the struggling fast food giant announces a broad restructuring program that promises, among other things, "less sweeping talk of millenials," Postmates starts delivering from 88 McDonald's locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.
According to a release, everything on the menu except for ice cream will be available for delivery, and customers can expect to pay a delivery fee based on distance, as well as Postmates' baseline service fee.
This is by no means the first time McDonald's has offered delivery in NYC – plenty of Manhattan outposts are already on Seamless, were you can get a Big Mac for no delivery fee, as long as you meet the $10 minimum. So for the most part, this sounds like McDonald's is just trying to keep up with the times, no matter what its CEO says about millenials.
