McDonald’s delivery service will soon be more widely available across the East Midlands as the fast-food giant partners with Just Eat.

JustEat will become the US takeaway behemoth’s second delivery partner in the UK after rival Uber Eats.

The takeaway app giant said the delivery service will be implemented during 2020 and comes after McDonald’s hailed strong uptake since it first launched a delivery service in 2017.

The company, which has agreed a merger with Takeaway.com, revealed the deal as it reported trading in line with expectations for the past year.

It said underlying earnings for 2019 were around £200 million, with group orders of around 254 million and revenue of approximately £1 billion.

The company said this means earnings will be towards the top end of its forecast range for the year.

Just Eat saw UK sales jump 8% during the year as it secured more branded delivery partners.

It will now work with McDonald’s in the UK and Ireland, becoming the US takeaway giant’s second delivery partner in the UK after rival Uber Eats.
