LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Is your fast food not fast enough for you?

Burger King Corp. is offering its customers a time-saving — and potentially waistline-bulging — option to its drive-through window: a home delivery service.

The fast food chain is testing out a pilot program at a handful of restaurants in Washington, D.C., that could potentially expand to 16 stores across the nation.

For a $2 delivery fee, customers can order their Whoppers delivered to them in what the company called “new packing technology” that would keep the food warm while being transported.

If successful, Burger King would be the first of the nation’s seven biggest restaurant chains to offer home delivery on a national scale.

For now, the pilot program is only offered to East Coast customers who live within 10 minutes of a participating store. But with hundreds of stores in Los Angeles alone — and the 17th-worst traffic in the U.S. — Angelenos may not have to wait too long for their King.

    Sounds like a good idea to me.

    If pizza parlors can do it and have been for years, why not BK?

    Very smart move. Surprised BK is the one to start it though. Living in Downtown LA, the places that deliver late at night are always busy. And they generally charge a small fee with min order. Just like pizza!
