McDonald's isn't the only chain experimenting with delivery.

"McDelivery" is also now available at about 300 restaurants in Los Angeles, 144 in Phoenix and 59 in Columbus, Ohio. Among the selections include Tito's, Don Julio, Stella Artois and Dom Perignon.

The move marks an effort by top officials to win back customers after the company saw a slight decline in sales at the beginning of the year.

Food delivery is not a new program for the Golden Arches.

McDonald's (MCD) now delivers from more than 1,000 of its 14,000 restaurants nationwide, and customers aren't just ordering quarter pounders for delivery, they're ordering in bulk.

Delivery has rapidly become the largest single trend in the restaurant industry, as chains race to bring the service to their restaurants around the country. McDonald's in other cities will be added in the coming months, according to a press release.

"McDonald's restaurant footprint, combined with the cutting-edge innovation of the UberEats platform, positions us well to meet consumer demand for fast and reliable delivery, making this an ideal partnership", Easterbrook said in a statement. The customer satisfaction report, with respect the quality of the food and delivery, has prompted the worldwide food chain to extend the service to other cities and states.

Fast-food competitor Wendy's announced similar delivery methods across the Columbus area. "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.
