How to get fast food delivered to your door
WITH COVID-19 lockdown restrictions now in full swing and go-to-recopies exhausted, a Dalby business has begun delivering so your dinner time cravings are satisfied.
McDonalds Dalby rolled out home deliveries earlier in the week, a move that the business has wanted to explore for a while.
Owner, Kym Munro said the addition of online delivery from 5pm until 9pm is to help boost sales.
“Deliveries only began on Wednesday and we will continue to monitor how it goes over the next couple of week, but so far so good,” she said.
“We have wanted to start home deliveries a while ago but the app was a bit clunky, but now it has been fast tracked and we are really excited.”
Last month, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that cafes and restaurants were only allowed to serve take away and that all dining areas must be blocked off from the public.
While the move to strictly drive through wasn’t a dramatic change for McDonalds Dalby, Mrs Munro admitted that there has been a drop in sales.
“We thought that it would be a great idea to provide those who may not have access to a car or who are being cautious to still get food delivered with zero contact,” she said.
“The customer pays through the Menulog app and the delivery driver will drop it off straight to their door.”
“Hopefully it will force some of these other delivery companies like Deliveroo and Uber Eats to head out this way which will open up more employment opportunities.”
The fast food chain are also operating as a one-stop shop for essential items such as milk, bread and eggs.
“It’s certainly a lot easier to go through the drive through for milk and bread and not have to worry about fighting anyone off at the supermarket,” Mrs Munro laughed.
“But again it is still eliminating any unnecessary contact between people.”
The complete McDonalds menu is available for delivery off of the Menulog app.
The app is available for free download off the app store for both Apple and Samsung devices.
