McDonald’s on Deliveroo
Deliveroo and McDonald’s hope to drive growth with a new, long-term global strategic partnership.
Londoners will be able to order McDonald’s through the Deliveroo app in the coming weeks as the two food giants forge a UK partnership just in time for the summer.
“Since we launched McDelivery in 2017, the service has gone from strength to strength,” said Alistair Macrow, McDonald’s UK and Ireland CEO. “More than 1,200 of our restaurants now offer delivery, and our delivery 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, so they can continue to enjoy their favourite McDonald’s menu items.”

This new partnership will “increase choice and selection on the platform for Deliveroo consumers, drive new consumer acquisition and create more work for Deliveroo riders”, according to the food delivery platform.
“We are delighted to be expanding our partnership with McDonald’s through this global agreement,” said Carlo Mocci, Deliveroo’s Chief Business Officer for the UK and Ireland. “This will bring McDonald’s iconic menu to millions of consumers. Deliveroo already works with McDonald’s in several markets and expanding our partnership to the UK will excite our UK consumers. Deliveroo’s mission is to become the definitive online food company, and working with McDonald’s will help us to achieve this, offering people the widest choice and best online delivery experience.”
In addition to the UK, McDonald’s and Deliveroo currently partner in France, Italy, Belgium, Australia, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates and Kuwait.
The companies hope that this partnership will strengthen both groups’ relationships in existing markets and expand their offerings into new markets.
