Starbucks once again proves that dreams really do come true. If you’ve ever dreamed of having a warm latte delivered to your doorstep, we’ve got news for you. Starbucks is looking to roll out a new delivery service, much to the delight of fans all over the country.
You know longer have to beat the morning traffic jam in order to get your favorite coffee on the go because Starbucks is looking to bring that coffee to your home or office door. Starbucks revealed that they will offer delivery service in 2,000 new locations across the U.S in 2019. And yes, some moms really can’t contain themselves over this exciting news.
According to The Chicago Tribune, the delivery service was tested in 100 Starbucks stores in Miami with great results (which shouldn’t really surprise anyone). The company has decided to put more focus on technology-driven initiatives in order to get a stronger digital relationship with their customers.
But here’s the sad news: the coffee giant declined to provide a list of cities that will get delivery in the coming months. The larger network of delivery-capable stores will also utilize Uber Eats. That means you will either get to enjoy the service in the next few months or might have to wait a little bit longer before Starbucks Delivery rolls into your town. Of course, there are several other options while you wait. You can either drive or walk to your closest Starbucks and order a coffee or latte like many people have been doing for years, or simply make your own cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home. And yes, we are thinking the same thing you are thinking: what fun would that be?
The delivery service isn’t the only change coming to Starbucks after the New Year. They will also begin a new “Clean Play” operation, which includes deep cleaning of store or equipment that would require a partner to be fully dedicated to that task and not able to serve customers, the company said in a press statement. Other notable changes include an improved inventory track and replenishment systems and reducing inventory quantities. This will cut the need for employees to move away from their stations.
