Burger King is now delivering its food to residents in greater Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. With as many as 20 participating restaurants in Chicago and Los Angeles and 15 more in the San Francisco Bay Area, guests can now have their favorite BK items delivered directly to them.
BK Delivers already exists in New York City, Miami, Houston and Washington D.C. Alex Macedo, president of North America, Burger King, said the program is performing well in those markets and there has been an increase in demand in other cities.
The service allows customers in the delivery zone to customize and order their meals through BKDelivers.com from a computer or mobile phone or by calling toll free to 855-ORDER-BK (855-673-3725). Burger King's proprietary thermal packaging technology keeps hot food hot and cold items cold.
The system remembers guests' orders for one touch ordering with each subsequent order.
BK Delivers plans to continue to expand and be available in even more locations in the Chicago metropolitan area throughout the next several months, serving Lincoln Park, Evanston, Skokie, The Loop, Cicero, Downers Grove and Logan Square.
In Southern California, BK Delivers will be available in Central LA, Echo Park, Glendale, Burbank, Hollywood, Eagle Rock, Anaheim, Covina, Garden Grove, La Puente, Chinatown, Koreatown and Santa Ana. In the San Francisco Bay area, service will be rolled out to Oakland, Union City, San Lorenzo, Castro Valley, San Leandro, San Jose, Milpitas,Cupertino, Sunnyvale and Alum Rock shortly.
The company is looking to expand and is soliciting guest input on which markets to target. Those who would like to see the service in their area should visit BKDelivers.com, enter their zip code and email address and the company will send alerts as the service grows.
