Global fast food giant McDonald’s has launched an online delivery service for McCafé, its coffee-house-style food and beverage chain, said local media.
Starting from October 8, Chinese users will be able to order from McCafé online through the company’s “iMcCafé Delivery” WeChat mini program, as well as Ele.me and Meituan apps. The services are currently only available in Shanghai, but the company plans to expand to more cities in the future.
McDonald’s has specially designed a new type of patented lid to avoid spilling beverages during delivery. A professional delivery team will guarantee the order could be finished within 28 minutes, according to the company, two minutes shorter than the 30-minutes delivery of its major rivals Luckin Coffee and Starbucks.
