Florida Gets To Be The First State To Have McDonalds Delivery

IJR- The signing of the Declaration of Independence, the pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock, the first moon landing — these are all great moments in America's history, moments that have helped define us as a people and a nation. Well, history will smile upon this moment, too, for the long-thought impossible, yet forever dreamed of, is now set to happen. McDonald's is going to start delivering. The announcement is one of several interesting directions the company has taken in recent months. Earlier this year, McDonald's announced that it would respond to mandatory minimum wage hikes by replacing some workers with automation and adding self-serve kiosks for customers. Former McDonald's CEO Ed Rensi told Fox News:     “It's cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who's inefficient making $15 an hour bagging french fries.” The delivery service will be available in Florida via Uber's new UberEats service at first, and based on feedback from Florida customers, McDonald's will make the decision whether or not to expand delivery service to other states. Delivery service is one more step in McDonald's effort to offer customers the “experience of the future,” which includes table service, lattes, and the aformentioned self-serve kiosks, according to CNBC. McDonald's also plans to start letting customers pay with a mobile app sometime next year.

Oh shit. Don’t look now but America’s favorite Fast Food Chain just re-invented the wheel and is test driving all over Florida. Never thought I’d see the day. Ever since day 1 of birth all I knew of McDonald’s was a walk in or drive through fast food chain. Perfect system. You drive around the block, order your shit in the comfort of your car and drive off listening to tunes 1 handed while the other hand devours carbs. Then they arguably disrupted the entire world economy when they introduced all day breakfast. I mean that was the pinnacle. What else did you need?  Your option of any burger or breakfast menu item at all hours of the day. Incredible. Do you know how much time has elapsed in the world before an advancement as astronomical as all day breakfast was? Years. I’m talking like landing on the moon, modern cellphones, then McDonald’s all day breakfast. Well they just took it another step forward towards the future. Fucking McDonald’s delivery. And yea i know there’s shit like Seamless and Grubhub already doing that. But those are metropolitan cities that have options for everything to be delivered. It was one food option in the sea of many. We’re talking delivery in Florida. A place where we can now chose to not burn a cup of gas to sit in our car for 10 minutes, drive 3 miles and place an order. Instead we can just do it from the sofa and walk 5 feet to the door. MAGNUM.
