If you're hankering to "supersize" your chicken McNuggets with a side of swag, McDonald's has your back.
On Thursday, July 19, as part of McDelivery Day, McDonald's will give out '90s-themed retro goodies to people who order through UberEats.
Starting at 10:30 in the morning, anyone who orders at least $5 in food through the UberEats app could get a free cell phone case, bandanna, T-shirt, fanny pack, track
Peter Menendez, who with his family owns 17 McDonald's franchises throughout Doral and West Kendall, says the promotion will celebrate the restaurant's partnership with UberEats. "When we launched delivery last year, we felt this was something we needed to get into. We are a brand of convenience and we wanted to let people just place an order."
UberEats Florida's general manager, Juan Pablo Restrepo, is more than happy with the alliance. “We’re able to leverage our speed and technology to make it even easier for McDonald’s customers to enjoy a delicious and convenient dining experience wherever they are.”
The partnership has worked out. In just one year, close to 200 McDonald's locations in Miami-Dade and Broward have delivered over 11 million chicken nuggets, more than 300,000 Big Macs, and more than half a million orders of fries through UberEats.
Menendez, a second-generation McDonald's franchisee who grew up working at his father's restaurants, says the fast food giant is committed to helping its employees. "There are managers who have worked 30-plus years with us, and I grew up with their kids. There are ESL and GED programs available to employees. What we try to do is make McDonald's a family."
