A McDonald’s home delivery service is ACTUALLY happening and it launches in June.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the global brand is looking to start a trial food delivery service in the UK in just over a month’s time.

UK chief executive Paul Pomroy said: “We will start with a delivery service from the right number of sites that gives us scale.

“I expect we will take a similar approach to the way we rolled out our app, starting small, learning quickly and scaling up very quickly.”

But, because Mr Pomroy said delivery of food would be carried out by an external company, which could mean teaming up with the likes of Uber Eats or Deliveroo, the chances of it coming to Grimsby are slim.

McDonald’s last month suggested it would target the US, France, Germany, the UK and Canada markets.

The company is preparing to expand the pilot of its app in 22 UK stores to 900 sites across the country this summer. The app allows customers to save menu preferences in their device and when they enter a McDonald’s site, they can ‘check in’ with their device at a digital scanner and have their order delivered to their table.
