Starbucks Will Now Deliver Your Coffee from a Quarter of Its Restaurants Across the Country
We all know that drinking coffee in the morning makes us feel more awake. Another cup in the afternoon to get through the rest of the day isn’t a bad idea either. If you have kids who wake up earlier than you’d like, you may find yourself drinking more coffee than you ever thought you would.
While you may have your own coffee pot at home or at work, sometimes you might want more than just an ordinary cup of joe. Sure, there are ways to make your own iced blended latte at home, but it’s just not the same as when you get one professionally blended for you. We’re looking at you, Starbucks.
And, apparently, Starbucks, is looking back at us.
You see, Starbucks knows that there’s a lot of competition in the coffee business. There are mom and pop coffee shops where you can get exotic blends and fresh food. There are other competitor chains with their own signature flavors and in-app ordering options.
Starbucks is striving to keep ahead of the competition.
We used to think it was incredible that many Starbucks have drive-thrus. It’s perfect when you need a pick-me-up on your way to work or on your way home from school drop-off and you haven’t had a chance to do your hair and makeup yet. Ahem.
Starbucks wants to do one better and make your life even easier.
What if you could get your favorite Starbucks beverage without even having to leave your house or your office?
Soon, this will be a reality. While Starbucks has unofficially been providing delivery service since 2015 through Postmates, in early 2019, Starbucks is going to officially start delivering coffee with the help of Uber Eats.
If your New Year’s Resolution is to drink more coffee, you’re all set.
While there are more than 8,000 Starbucks restaurants in the United States, the delivery service will operate out of about only 2,000 of these locations. In early 2019, you can check the Uber Eats app to find out if a location near you is offering delivery service.
The delivery service is cleverly named “Starbucks Delivers,” and it’s already available in China. The experience for U.S. customers should be pretty flawless since the company already knows some tricks to keep your order just the way you like it open delivery. Starbucks will use things like spill-proof lids and special containers that keep hot drinks piping hot.
Watch the video below to see more details about how “Starbucks Delivers” will work.
