Good morning to everyone. Over the holidays, Starbucks made a preliminary announcement that would change how you kick off your bachelorette, bridal shower and wedding weekend–because the coffee company is now expanding its delivery service nationwide.
The brand officially launched its partnership with Uber Eats on Tuesday, January 22, which allows freshly-brewed coffee, iced lattes, and other morning treats to be delivered straight to your bridal suite or the party pad during your bachelorette getaway.
The concept–first tested in Miami stores in late 2018–is in partnership with 3,500 Starbucks locations nationwide, and will roll out first in San Francisco, which will then be followed by availability in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
With the delivery service, your wedding day timeline will be that much more convenient without much disruption to the hourly schedule you’ve carefully curated. Your loved ones can simply enjoy their mornings while conveniently being caffeinated for all the events ahead. (Imagine having everyone’s go-to coffee order delivered straight to the wedding suite as your bridesmaids get their hair and makeup touched up.)
The new service will also help with any bachelorette party antics since hangovers are best cured with coffee delivered straight to your door. Or, you might want to bulk order ounces of coffee for your bridal shower guests without having your sister scrambling to pick it up.
The company’s COO Rosalind Brewer previously said the new program with Uber Eats overlaps with an increased focus on digital initiatives given the success of mobile orders on the app.
Data revealed that roughly about 51 percent of its sales were made within stores, while drive-thru orders comprised 37 percent of sales. Mobile orders, finally, increased from 5 percent in 2016 to 12 percent in 2018.
