McDon­ald’s de­liv­ery now avail­able through Zi­taat

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

In a strate­gic move aimed at en­hanc­ing and ex­pand­ing the Brand’s cur­rent de­liv­ery ca­pa­bil­i­ties, McDon­ald’s Kuwait an­nounced yes­ter­day that its de­liv­ery ser­vices will now be avail­able ex­clu­sively through Zi­taat Gen­eral Trad­ing Com­pany and De­liv­ery Ser­vice; which owns and op­er­ates Zi­taat, the new­est on­line food de­liv­ery plat­form. By mi­grat­ing its de­liv­ery ser­vices to a ded­i­cated ex­ter­nal com­pany, McDon­ald’s meals will now be avail­able for de­liv­ery to a greater num­ber of cus­tomers, cov­er­ing a sig­nif­i­cantly larger ge­o­graph­i­cal area.

Start­ing from Au­gust 1st (to­day), the ex­ist­ing in-house McDon­ald’s de­liv­ery ser­vice will be sus­pended and all placed or­ders will be de­liv­ered via Zi­taat’s ded­i­cated fleet of de­liv­ery ve­hi­cles, which are equipped with special car­rier bags that pre­serve heat and food qual­ity. In ad­di­tion to or­der­ing di­rectly through Zi­taat’s app and web­site, cus­tomers will still be able to place their or­ders through the ex­ist­ing McDe­liv­ery plat­forms, in­clud­ing the smart­phone app, the on­line de­liv­ery plat­form and the de­liv­ery hot­line.

“Since we launched our McDe­liv­ery ser­vice back in 2015, we have seen the de­mand for de­liv­ery con­tinue to grow at a rapid pace. There­fore, in an ef­fort to take our de­liv­ery ser­vices to the next level and bet­ter serve our cus­tomers, we made the strate­gic de­ci­sion to part­ner with Zi­taat in or­der to stream­line our de­liv­ery process and greatly ex­pand our cur­rent reach,” said Luai Al-Ki­lani, Vice Pres­i­dent of McDon­ald’s Kuwait. Al-Ki­lani added: “Now, cus­tomers all across Kuwait will be able to en­joy our de­liv­ery ser­vices, and we are ex­cited to be bring­ing to them the McDon­ald’s ex­pe­ri­ence they love right to their doorstep, wher­ever they may be.”

Speak­ing on be­half of Zi­taat, Na­jlaa Karam, Gen­eral Man­ager of Zi­taat Gen­eral Trad­ing Com­pany and De­liv­ery Ser­vice said: “As a newer en­trant into the mar­ket, our part­ner­ship with McDon­ald’s is an ex­tremely strate­gic one and un­doubt­edly a ma­jor mile­stone for our com­pany. McDon­ald’s re­mains one of the big­gest and most pop­u­lar names in the coun­try, and we are con­fi­dent that as we con­tinue to col­lab­o­rate with part­ners of this cal­iber, Zi­taat will quickly es­tab­lish it­self as a force to be reck­oned with in the food de­liv­ery mar­ket in Kuwait.”
