Did you know that there are over 20,000 McDonald’s locations throughout the world? That’s a ton of golden arches. If you work for a restaurant delivery service like DoorDash, Uber Eats, GrubHub, or another third-party food delivery app that features local eateries, it might be hard to keep track of which locations serve which meals. After all, if you deliver food from a lot of different restaurants in the same city on the same app, those details become less important.
As long as customers can find your orders on the app and meet the minimum order price threshold, logistics become secondary. But operating within parameters like these makes keeping tabs on specific locations even more important.
Fortunately for you and your customers alike, this article will explain how to change the Mcdonald’s location on DoorDash when working with more than one location of that chain.
Find Out Which McDonald’s Locations Are Available
First things first, you’ll want to make sure that you’re working with the right McDonald’s locations. Depending on the restaurant’s size, there may be more than one location in your city. If that’s the case, you’ll need to find out at which ones you can pick up and drop off orders. The good news is that this information is more accessible than ever before.
First, you can always contact the restaurant you’ve chosen to work with to find out which location(s) they have. Alternatively, you can find the location(s) by searching for the restaurant’s name and clicking on the “Locations” or “Find My Store” tab on the corresponding website. Once you know the correct location(s), you’ll be able to proceed as normal.
Change The Location On DoorDash
Once you’ve confirmed that you’re picking up and dropping off orders at the right McDonald’s location, you’ll need to change the location on DoorDash. Bear in mind that this can only be done on the app. If you have an account manager, you can ask them to do it for you. If not, you can follow the steps below to change the location on your own.
First, make sure that you’re logged into your account. Once logged in, head to the app’s “Orders” tab. From there, select the order for which you’d like to change the location. Once you’ve selected the order, you’ll need to make sure you’re on the “Details” tab. From there, locate the McDonald’s location dropdown menu and select the correct location. Once you’ve made your selection, you can click “Save” to make your changes official.
Change The Location In-App Or Via API
Depending on the needs of your specific business, you may want to change the location in-app or via API. In-app changing is simple: once you’ve logged into your DoorDash account, simply select the order for which you’d like to change the location. From there, select the “Details” tab and scroll down to the “Restaurant” section. From there, select the “Restaurant” option and select the correct restaurant. You’ll need to click “Update” to make your changes official. If you want to make the changes via API, you can use the following syntax:
Regardless of the delivery app you use, you should always try to work with the right McDonald’s location. After all, the more you can simplify the ordering experience for customers, the better your business will do. And when it comes to partnering with McDonald’s, you can’t get much simpler than working at a single location and providing a set menu. Once you’ve confirmed that you’re working with the right location, you can proceed as normal.
