Are you lovin' it? UberEats delivers McDonald's in New Orleans

If you're wanting a Big Mac but don't want to drive to a McDonald's to satisfy your craving, take heart.

McDonald's said delivery through UberEats will be available in about 1 in 4 of its USA locations by the end of June, or about 3,500 restaurants in total. MCD CEO Steve Easterbrook says that the service has been especially popular with its younger customers.

The closest location will prepare the order, and an Uber driver will pick it up for a flat booking fee and deliver it on demand.

In the USA, 60 percent of delivery orders were placed in the evening or late at night, and arrived, on average, within 30 minutes, he said.

McDonald's has announced that it will start delivering from more than 300 of its restaurants in New York City and the surrounding area. "Our customers have told us they enjoy experiencing McDonald's in new ways, and we look forward to offering more ways to enjoy their favorite menu items".

That doesn't mean Alabama restaurants won't eventually be on the list of delivery locations.

"Nearly 60 percent of orders are being placed during the evening or late night", he said.

Easterbrook said the chain has been encouraged by the early results from its delivery services.

McDonald's delivery is now available in 2,000 of the fast-food chain's stores.

McDonalds is launching delivery service in NY and throughout the Tri-State area on Wednesday, the Daily News has exclusively learned.

McDonald's is no stranger to delivery on the worldwide scene, with the food-to-your method common in China, South Korea and Singapore.
