It used to be that you had to drive to a fast food restaurant, park your car, and walk all the way inside to order. Then came the advent of the drive-thru, and it became all the more easy to say, yes, in fact, I would like fries with that. And now, finally, the last barrier between you and a giant, gooey manufactured meal has been removed: Burger King will now deliver right to your door.
For the moment, this service is only being tested at a few locations near D.C., but here's how it works:
Residents living within a 10-minute drive of select Burger King locations in Maryland and Virginia can place orders by phone or online and receive deliveries for a $2 fee.
There is also a minimum order of $8 to $10. OK, so a $2 fee cuts down on the value of fast food eating. And, depending on what you order, it could take a lot of food to hit a $10 minimum. But the company says it's been successfully doing delivery in other countries, so maybe they're onto something here. The novelty of having a Whopper delivered right to your door certainly does have some appeal. Who knows, if this takes off and spreads nationwide, we might never have to leave the house again!
