Doritos Locos tacos and Extra Crispy drumsticks will soon be available for delivery nationwide: Taco Bell and KFC are officially partnering with Grubhub to offer delivery from thousands of locations across the U.S.
As parent company Yum Brands’ official delivery partner, Grubhub will offer online ordering for KFC and Taco Bell, with both pickup and delivery options. Yum is also making a $200 million investment in Grubhub, per the press release, and the president of its third big brand, Pizza Hut, is joining Grubhub’s board of directors.
No concrete timeline has been laid out for the delivery launch, but Yum says it will work with KFC and Taco Bell franchisees in the coming months to test the new pickup and delivery initiatives. The brands have been discussing the possibility of delivery since at least 2015. Taco Bell has offered delivery in certain markets for the last several years, but this is the first time the brands will be officially represented on a national delivery platform.
Fast-food rival McDonald’s has made a major push into delivery recently, partnering with Uber Eats to offer delivery from thousands of locations across the country. Tragically, the company still hasn’t solved the issue of soggy delivery fries.
