Starbucks Delivers launches in 12th country

Starbucks Canada has teamed up with Uber Eats to launch Starbucks Delivers, bringing the door-to-door delivery service to major cities in the country. Customers in Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary can choose from the majority of Starbucks menu for delivery from hundreds of stores nationwide. Starbucks says the Canadian launch of Starbucks Delivers demonstrates further exploration of the test that began in 2018 in the United States and further global expansion earlier this year. “Our success is rooted in our ongoing commitment to bringing exceptional customer experiences through significant investments in technology and product innovation. Uber Eats is the ideal partner to help share the Starbucks Experience wherever our customers are,” Starbucks Canada President Michael Conway says. “Learning from our global Starbucks Delivers rollout, we've incorporated unique company packaging and standards to deliver Starbucks products to Canadians without compromising the high-quality of handcrafted beverages, food and service they expect from us.” Read more:
