Burton Mail - - News - By BEN WAL­DRON ben­jamin.wal­dron@reach­ @BenWal­dron96

A POP­U­LAR food de­liv­ery ser­vice that would see McDon­ald’s de­liv­ered right to your door is be­ing rolled out in Bur­ton.

Uber Eats is avail­able in hun­dreds of cities across the coun­try – and has now in­creased its of­fer­ing in Stafford­shire to in­clude Bur­ton and Stafford.

Hun­gry res­i­dents in the area can down­load the app, browse a num­ber of fast food and restau­rant menus and have grub de­liv­ered straight to their doorstep – in­clud­ing a Big Mac and fries from McDon­ald’s.

Uber Eats is the food de­liv­ery arm of ride shar­ing com­pany, Uber.

The food app uses the same tech­nol­ogy as the driv­ing side, al­low­ing peo­ple to track their or­der as it is on it’s way, as well as pay­ing and tip­ping driv­ers by us­ing their phones to trans­fer money, avoid­ing the need for cash.

Cuisines rang­ing from Asian to Ital­ian are listed on app, which can be down­loaded on iOS and An­droid now.

Cur­rently in­cluded on the Uber Eats app for the Bur­ton area is McDon­ald’s, He­len’s Bake­house and Tea­room, Verde Cafe, Grill and Roti, Peri De­li­cious, Frankie & Benny’s, Bella Italia, Pizza Base, Grill 2 Go, Gril­laz and Jee Ja Jees.

Fran­chise owner of the Bur­ton McDon­ald’s restaurants, Sarah McLean has wel­comed the move.

She said: “My restau­rant teams and I are de­lighted to be in­tro­duc­ing the McDe­liv­ery ser­vice to Bur­ton, of­fer­ing yet an­other level of con­ve­nience to our loyal, lo­cal cus­tomers.

“De­liv­ery is some­thing that our cus­tomers of­ten ask about so it’s ex­cit­ing that we’re now able to pro­vide our freshly made, great tast­ing food in a way that suits their busy lives.” Tous­saint Wat­tinne, the gen­eral man­ager of Uber Eats in the United King­dom, told of his sur­prise at the pop­u­lar­ity of the app else­where in Stafford­shire, hav­ing al­ready been rolled out in Stoke.

Mr Wat­tinne said: “We have been blown away with how pop­u­lar the app has been in Stokeon-Trent so we’re re­ally ex­cited to be ex­pand­ing fur­ther into Stafford­shire.

“Peo­ple can now get great food at the touch of a but­ton de­liv­ered straight to their home or of­fice.

“We have part­nered with plenty of restaurants, so we hope there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one’s tastes.”
