This morning while I was getting ready I was listening to the news. There was a story about Burger King’s new delivery option. For just $2 extra you can have a whopper delivered right to your desk or home. Currently it’s available only in Washington DC at 10 locations as a test pilot. The three guys in the video were raving about how awesome this was that they got delicious burgers in only 42 minutes.
Ok first of all … How lazy have we become that we can’t get our butts up and drive to get fast food. Does it REALLY need to be delivered?? Sure, I can see in instances where it would be convenient, like if you have a huge order for an office or for a bunch of guys at a job site. I can also see that if you lived in a big city and didn’t have a car, delivery would be better than taking a taxi or riding the subway. But to just call them up to deliver a burger and fries? Not so much.
Secondly … 42 minutes?? Do you know how many times I could drive myself to Burger King and back in that amount of time?
But seriously … who actually eats Burger King in the first place? I guess they are trying to boost sales and be ahead of the game by trying out this new strategy. Will it work? Who knows.
I say … if you really want fast food then get in the car, drive yourself, and get it yourself.
Do you agree? Disagree? Pretend this isn’t Burger King … what fast food restaurant would you be excited about having a delivery option? Me … I don’t even get pizza delivered because I don’t like paying a trip charge haha.
