Burger King North America president Chris Finazzo said: “At Burger King restaurants, delivery is a major priority to ensure our food is available to anyone, anywhere.

“We know our guests value convenience and adding the Burger King brand to Uber Eats is another way we will meet the demands of millions of people on this platform.”

In addition, Uber Eats is offering free delivery on orders of $15 or more for a limited time until 27 October this year. The delivery service is available on select menu items.

Commenting on the partnership, Uber Eats US and Canada head Janelle Sallenave said: “We’re thrilled to team up with Burger King restaurants to offer their beloved menu items to Uber Eats customers across the country.
