Burger King is expanding its delivery service to Chicago.
The Miami-based chain first rolled out delivery in Washington, D.C., early last year and now offers it in the Houston, Miami and New York areas as well.
Whether Burger King’s delivery service will prove popular enough to pick off customers from its rivals remains to be seen, with the service still fairly limited for now.
Burger King says it is also adding the delivery service to Los Angeles and San Francisco. The company says about 20 restaurants will participate in the Chicago and Los Angeles area, and 15 in the San Francisco Bay area. The chain has about 13,000 restaurants globally, with about 7,500 in North America.
Customers can place orders online or by phone between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. and orders must be a minimum of $10.
According to the company’s delivery website, bkdelivers.com, delivery service is listed for the 2828 W. Belmont location in Chicago and at 1829 Dempster Street in Evanston.
A representative for Burger King Worldwide Inc. said delivery boosts sales at restaurants where it’s available but declined to provide further details. AP
