Just What We Need: Burger King Delivery Service in L.A.
Sometimes you want a Whopper but you don't want to, like, put on shoes and drag your ass to your car and face the ordeal of ordering at the drive-through to get your burger in a bag. Right? You wish that damn burger would come to you!
Burger King has announced they are now able to answer your prayers, with the expansion of their delivery service into the L.A. market. You lucky, lazy, Whopper lovers!
The BK Delivers service is already "performing well" elsewhere in the U.S. where apparently fast food can improve its consumers' immobility by bringing it to them at home or work, in cities like New York, Miami, Houston, and Washington D.C.
According to a news release, Burger King has "seen an increasing demand for the program in other markets," and, not wanting to deny the masses their mass-produced products, are launching delivery here in L.A., as well as in Chicago and San Francisco.
If you've ever done something as rigorous as ordering a pizza, you have all the training and expertise needed to order delivery from BK.
They tell us that in SoCal, you can get delivery at some addresses in the following areas: Central LA, Echo Park, Glendale, Burbank, Hollywood, Eagle Rock, Anaheim, Covina, Garden Grove, La Puente, Chinatown, Koreatown and Santa Ana. (Looks like right now it's just Glendale and Eagle Rock up and running, though.)
Mmm, can't you just smell that hot order of 10 cheeseburgers and 20 nuggets headed to your doorstep now?
