On Tuesday, Starbucks announced the expansion of Starbucks Delivers to five new U.S. markets: Atlanta, Denver, Phoenix, Philadelphia, and New Jersey, as well as further expansion in the New York Metro.
Initially launched as a pilot in partnership with Uber Eats in late 2018, the delivery program is now available in a total of 16 major U.S. markets and will reach national availability in early 2020.
“Following our recent commitment to make delivery available nationwide in 2020, we are excited to bring Starbucks Delivers to five more major U.S. markets,” says Roz Brewer, group president and chief operating officer for Starbucks. “The rapid expansion of Starbucks Delivers is part of our continuous effort to enhance the retail experience and provide customers another convenient option to enjoy Starbucks wherever they are.”
Available through the Uber Eats platform, Starbucks Delivers allows customers to track progress of their order and location of their Uber courier. With approximately 95 percent of core items available from the Starbucks menu, customers can customize their orders as they would when ordering on the Starbucks Mobile App.
