Uber has announced that its Uber Eats service will now deliver Starbucks orders to more places in the United States and London, UK. Uber Eats customers in San Francisco can start making orders from today, and in the following weeks, customers in New York City, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles will also be able to make orders.
The expansion follows a pilot scheme carried out by Uber Eats which allowed customers in Miami to place orders with Starbucks. The delivery firm said that coffee has become one of the most searched drinks with orders for the beverage increasing more than 255% in the last year.
Discussing the expansion, Starbucks said:
“The U.S. expansion of Starbucks Delivers follows [the] success of the test in Miami that began in fall of 2018. The test, also powered by Uber Eats, saw strong demand, including repeat business throughout the day and positive feedback from customers.”
It went on to mention that the two firms will begin serving customers in London, UK too:
“This expansion coincides with the kickoff of a new pilot, due to begin later this month, which will see London chosen as the first European city to trial Starbucks Delivers, powered by Uber Eats.”
So, if you’re in San Francisco, be sure to update or download the Uber Eats app in order to begin placing orders with Starbucks. If you’re in any of the other cities, be sure to be on the lookout for the service launching in those areas too.
