McDonald’s could be about to extend its delivery service to Northern Ireland.

The fast-food giant announced on Thursday plans to introduce its delivery service to the UK, France, Germany, USA and Canada.

The McDonald’s delivery service is currently available in China and Singapore.

“One of the most significant disruptions in the restaurant business today is the rapid increase in delivery,” an official statement from McDonald’s said.

“Through technology, delivery has changed the way customers order, pay, track and receive food and provide feedback.

“Coupled with the explosive growth in third-party delivery companies, the landscape has created an exceptional opportunity for growth.

“Because of our extraordinary footprint, McDonald’s is uniquely positioned to become the global leader in delivery.”

There are 26 McDonald’s restaurants in Northern Ireland.
