We should have known that recent good news about declining meat consumption in America wouldn’t arrive without a rebuttal. Burger King has unveiled a new service that will take the term “fast food” to an new level, offering delivery to your home or office. The service is being tested from 10 locations in Washington D.C.
That’s right. If you live in the nation’s capitol, you can pay an additional $2 and get your extra large Whopper, fries, and diet Coke delivered right to your door. Delivery is available between 11:00 am and 10:00 pm, with a 30-minute delivery guarantee if you live within 10 miles of the restaurant. Unfortunately, these delivery hours mean you’ll have to wake up at the break of dawn and venture out yourself if you want a croissant and some hash browns for breakfast. The NERVE.
Worried about the quality of your food if you get it delivered? Oh, don’t fret. Your burger will arrive in strategic packaging that covers the bun to prevent sogging, and “proprietary thermal packaging technology” to guarantee you’ll receive your food “fresh” and “crispy.” Does this mean it will actually look like the burgers in the commercial?
If all goes well with this trial run in Washington D.C., you may experience this convenience in your own hometown sometime in 2012.
Would you pay an extra $2 to have your Burger King delivered to your home?
