business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Chicago Tribune reports that Burger King “is testing delivery in a few Washington, D.C. area restaurants as part of a test that will include 16 restaurants by January 23 ... Customers can order online or over the phone, and orders will include a $2 delivery fee. Order minimums vary by store, but will range from $8 to $10. Customers must be located within a 10 minute drive of the store.”

No timing for any sort of national rollout has been announced.
KC's View:
This move comes as Wendy’s has passed Burger King to become the nation’s second ranked fast food burger chain.

And I’m sure that a lot of folks will now change back, saying, “Wow! Now that I can get Burger King delivered, I’m abandoning Wendy’s.”

Yeah. Sure they will.
