Dunkin', Taco Bell announce delivery expansion as others hit bumps in the road

YUM SBUX

But using those delivery platforms comes at a cost. In the last two years alone, delivery has become a $3 billion business for the fast food chain. However, McDonald's MCD U.S. franchisees have expressed dissatisfaction with their returns on orders delivered by UberEats, adding it to a list of other corporate decisions the restaurant owners believe are not in their best interest.
