The No. 2 fast food hamburger chain is considering expanding a service you don't get from the Golden Arches: Delivering to your door.

Since fall, Burger King locations in Springfield, Va., and Gaithersburg and Germantown in Maryland have been testing fast food delivery, USA Today reported.

What took so long? Well, burgers and fries are perceived to travel and reheat poorly when compared to more common delivery options like pizza and Chinese food.

Burger King has developed a "proprietary thermal packaging technology," says Jonathan Fitzpatrick, chief brand and operations officer for Burger King, "which ensures the Whopper is delivered hot and fresh, and the french fries are delivered hot and crispy."

You must be within a 10-minute drive of the restaurant to get delivery service from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., the USA Today reported. Minimum order varies from $8 to $10 and there is a $2 delivery fee. Breakfast is not included.
