In an announcement on its website, Starbucks revealed that they’ll be expanding their partnership with Uber Eats in 2019. The company has piloted a delivery program using Uber Eats in Tokyo and Miami in the US, but come 2019, they will be expanding its available across the US.
According to Starbucks, “Leveraging learnings from its delivery experience in China, Starbucks sees further market opportunity with Starbucks Delivers. The company recently initiated pilots of Starbucks Delivers in both Tokyo and Miami with Uber Eats. Today, Starbucks announced plans to expand Starbucks Delivers to nearly a quarter of its U.S. company-operated stores in early 2019.”
Starbucks has actually be testing out the idea of deliveries over in China which they expanded earlier this year across 2,000 stores and 30 cities, but now it looks like Starbucks delivery will now be more accessible for those in the US. Whether or not this will be the full menu or will only contain the basic selections remains to be seen, but it could be worth keeping an eye out for.
