Uber Eats will soon start delivering Starbucks to New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and more
Kevin, your order is ready.
About a month ago, we reported that Uber Eats and Starbucks were teaming to bring coffee delivery right to your front door. Meaning, no more waiting in sluggishly long lines to get your caffeine fix. If you’re like any red-blooded human being who’s ever had to wait in a long line at Starbucks, you’ll know that this is a godsend.
When we originally reported this news, Starbucks was only testing this new venture in pilot cities which included Miami and Tokyo. The idea was to roll this out to nearly 2,000 Starbucks around the country. Well, as it turns out, the pilot programs were a massive success, and the company wants to see more of it.
Today, Starbucks announced that they’re finally launching this new delivery service to six of the biggest cities sprawled across the U.S. The cities in this rollout include San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, DC.
Folks living in San Francisco can try it out today, while the rest of the cities included in the initial rollout have to wait a few weeks before it’s made available to them via the Uber Eats app.
What can I order?
As for the menu that’s available on Uber Eats, it’s pretty much the whole shebang. Uber Eat users will have access to 95% of the Starbucks menu. There’s a $2.49 booking fee, along with the cost of food, coffee, and of course, delivery fee.
Starbucks said on Tuesday: “Be it breakfast delivered straight to the soccer field or afternoon lattés to the office, we know this partnership will delight our customers.”
Honestly, I can’t disagree with that statement. Having the ability to order Starbucks remotely anywhere in these major cities, while ditching the lines and wait times is insanely clutch, and I for one can see myself using this a lot.
