Hundreds of McDonald's in the New York area will soon offer delivery

New York is about to get supersized. 

McDonald's has announced that it will start delivering from more than 300 of its restaurants in New York City and the surrounding area. The initiative is in collaboration with UberEats and follows the launch of similar delivery collaborations with the ride-sharing company in cities across the country. According to Crain's, the chain plans to roll out delivery to all of the U.S. areas where UberEats is available. 

McDonald's is trying really, really hard to remain relevant. In the past decade, the fast food giant has faced a slew of challenges, including an increasing level of competition from fast casual chains and a distaste for fast food from millennials. Further, in a city with so many tasty cheap burgers and french fries, a Big Mac isn't exactly the most appealing meal.

In 2015, the company fired its CEO Don Thompson following a sharp decline in earnings the year prior. Since then, the company has tried to make their burgers and fries feel more hip, with initiatives like touch screen menus and a strangely designed straw.

That said, if you're desperately craving an order of McNuggets but want to avoid the shame of walking into a McDonald's, the new delivery service is your best bet.
