Delivery isn't just for pizza anymore. Burger King is taking the convenience of fast food to the next level by introducing delivery service. The fast food chain has been offering delivery in Turkey, Mexico, Peru, Columbia and Brazil for several years and is now testing out the service in Maryland and Washington D.C.
To get a Whopper delivered to your door, you can order by phone or online. The delivery minimum is $8 to $10 plus a $2 surcharge.
Burgers are a bit more challenging to deliver than pizzas, so Burger King has developed "new delivery packaging technology." Burgers are packaged with the lettuce and tomato separately to keep the veggies from wilting during travel, sodas are bottled to prevent watered-down fountain drinks, and if you're worried about soggy fries, all orders are delivered in thermal bags to ensure the food is hot and fresh.
Burger King has also tweaked their delivery menu to include meals to feed a crowd, like chicken tender combos that include drinks and 10-packs of cheeseburgers, all of which can be delivered in under 30 minutes, according to the company's website.
Burger King has not announced whether the service will be available nationwide. Depending on how this trial run goes, it may or may not be available near you -- which could be a good thing or a bad thing!
