Starbucks Coffee Company has announced plans to make Starbucks Delivers available throughout the United States in early 2020 through an agreement with Uber. The intention to expand follows an 11-market rollout which demonstrated successful operational integration and received positive customer response to an experience consistent with the Starbucks brand.
“We are driven to create new and unique digital experiences that are meaningful, valuable, and convenient for our customers,” says Roz Brewer, Group President and Chief Operating Officer for Starbucks. “Partnering with Uber Eats helps us take another step towards bringing Starbucks to customers wherever they are.”
By partnering with Uber Eats, Starbucks is leveraging the expertise of the delivery service while extending the potential customer base beyond those who currently include Starbucks as part of their morning or afternoon routines. Through the agreement, the companies will collaborate on innovation and technology integration. Starbucks and Uber Eats will continue to focus on delivery packaging, in-store operations, and a quick order-to-door delivery window.
“Our customers are huge Starbucks fans and love being able to get their favorite items delivered with Uber Eats speed,” says Jason Droege, Vice President of UberEverything. “We’re excited to expand our partnership across the United States to make ordering their favorite coffee and breakfast sandwich as easy as requesting a ride.”
Over the past decade Starbucks has continued to innovate the retail experience to connect with customers digitally. Through Starbucks Rewards, the Starbucks Mobile App, or Mobile Order and Pay, the brand has adapted to the changing consumer landscape. Starbucks Delivers powered by Uber Eats began rolling out in the fall of 2018 through a pilot in Miami and is currently available in 11 US markets. Starbucks will continue to introduce delivery to new markets, achieving national coverage by early 2020.
Here are Starbucks Delivers’ features:

  • Order Today: Starbucks Delivers is available via the Uber Eats mobile app on iOS and Android devices.
  • Quick, Reliable Delivery: Powered by the Uber Eats platform, customers can follow orders within the mobile app, tracking progress and location of their Uber courier to ensure proper delivery of their food and beverage items. Starbucks has also developed packaging to help ensure the quality of hot and cold menu items.
  • Customization: With approximately 95 percent of core menu items available directly from the Starbucks menu, customers will be able to customize their orders just as they would when ordering on Starbucks mobile apps.
