The U.K. food-delivery group , which is in the process of merging with Dutch peer Takeaway.com NV /zigman2/quotes/201653805/delayed NL:TKWY +1.17% , said it will become the second delivery partner for McDonald’s /zigman2/quotes/203508018/composite MCD +0.95% in the U.K. and Ireland. The partnership follows the rollout of Just Eat’s delivery services and will be implemented in 2020, the U.K. company said.
