FLORIDA -- McDonald's has given lounge lizards in Florida the ultimate Christmas present - a delivery service.
Also read, Just Eat could spend up to $383 million to acquire U.K.’s Hungryhouse and Canada’s SkipTheDishes.
The fast food chain has announced plans to trial deliveries from 200 restaurants in Miami, Tampa and Orlando next month.
The Golden Arches chain has linked up with UberEATS, an app which serves 50 cities around the world.
Customers suffering from the usual post-Christmas and New Year misery will be able to order off the McDonald's menu and use the app to get some comfort food delivered to their door.
A McDonald’s spokesman said: 'McDonald's is bringing a new level of everyday convenience to our customers in the U.S. through a delivery test in nearly 200 restaurants in Orlando, Tampa and Miami.
'Beginning in late January 2017, customers will be able to have their favorite McDonald’s menu items delivered right to their doors via UberEATS.
'Consumers will place orders digitally via the UberEATS website or mobile app, and an UberEATS courier will deliver the food from McDonald’s directly to customers.'
Hungry customers will even be able to track their Big Macs, Filet-o-Fish or McNuggets through the UberEATS app.
The corporation said it would examine the feedback in great detail before deciding whether to expand the delivery service to other parts of the US.
McDonald's serves 68 million customers a day in 119 countries and has 36,615 outlets globally, 14,157 of which are in the US.
