We're not there quite yet, but it seems as though McDonald's delivery in the United Kingdom could soon be a thing.

McDonald's expanded its partnership with the food-delivery arm of Uber last month, and now we know exactly which cities are coming onboard for mobile McGriddle deliveries. Among the selections include Tito's, Don Julio, Stella Artois and Dom Perignon.

Last year, McDonald's said it generated almost $1 billion in delivery sales globally across both its company-owned and franchised restaurants. The full menu at participating McDonald's restaurants will be available for delivery with the exception of soft serve cones.

Karavites said he's also expecting higher sales at restaurants that offer delivery.

And this is just the beginning, McDonald's added. In the USA, the company said it can rapidly expand delivery by using UberEats.

'When we first started considering delivery, food quality was our top concern, ' Bill Garrett, McDonald's vice president of global delivery, said, according to the Chicago Tribune. There's a 40-piece Chicken McNuggets for $9.99, and a Big Mac & Chicken McNuggets Meal Bundle - two Big Macs, 20-piece Chicken McNuggets, three medium fries and three medium beverages - for $14.99.

Almost 75 percent of the USA population lives within three 3 miles of a McDonald's restaurant, according to the company.

McDonald's has officially introduced a delivery service, and it's called ~McDelivery~. "We're thrilled to partner with McDonald's to give fans in Southern California easy access to their McDonald's favorites at the tap of a button", said Allen Narcisse, General Manager of UberEATS Southern California.
