McDonald's will now take orders via WhatsApp in Delhi NCR
- Fast-food giant McDonald’s is ramping up its online delivery efforts in India.
- Customers in Delhi can now place an order through WhatsApp.
- McDonald’s called it an extension of its 100% contactless ordering service.
“This is a part of McDonald’s initiative of providing more convenience to its customers, an extension of 100% contactless ordering service enabling customers to access the menu by simply scanning the QR code available at McDonald’s restaurants and select contactless takeaway or dining-in service, as per their convenience,” said the company’s statement.
Here’s how you can place an order
- Send a message with the text ‘Hi’ to 9953916666.
- A link to the menu will appear.
- Select the food items for the order and then feed in your details – WhatsApp number and delivery address.
- Once order is confirmed, an invoice will be sent to the customers’ WhatsApp number with the details.
A recent survey by YouGov showed that even while Zomato and Swiggy led the online delivery race, a rising number of orders now come from apps of QSRs. “Even though a majority prefer to order through a third-party app, many people (35%) choose to place their order directly through a restaurant’s mobile app or online through its website (26%),” said the survey.
