Burger King preps free home delivery in the UK

Burger King is delivering orders directly to the doors of starving customers across the UK for free ahead of a wider rollout later in the year.

The home delivery service is running at eight restaurants, including Northampton, Romford and Gants Hill. Burger King lovers living within two miles of any of those areas can make orders from the a specially designed site or over the phone everyday between the hours of 12pm and 3pm and 6pm to 10pm.

Most foods from the Burger King menu can be ordered, ranging from kids meals to sides, to sauces and burgers. Food is paid for on delivery and all orders come with an email coupon.

Additionally, the burger chain has created three new combo deals exclusively for delivery customers in order to drive take-up.

Matthew Bresnahan, marketing director of Burger King’s Northern Europe, Russia, and Afrfica regions, said: “Buger King is firmly committed to delivering great-tasting food at affordable prices to all of our customers. We are extremely excited about this Home Delivery service trial so customers can continue to enjoy the perfect combination of taste, at great value prices, now delivered straight to their homes.”

Burger King is the latest fast food chain to broaden its service offering as it looks for alternative ways to woo younger diners from the tills of the likes of Nando’s and Pizza Express. McDonald’s has been exploring click-and-collect opportunities in the UK and throughout Europe, while KFC has introduced a mobile click-and-collect service from its app.
