The news comes after successfully testing delivery at 100 stores in Miami.
Good news, non-morning people! Now your coffee can come to you.
Starting next year, Starbucks is expanding their delivery service to 2,000 U.S. locations as a part of their partnership with Uber Eats. Customers will likely be able to start ordering in late March or early April, according to Starbucks COO Rosalind Brewer.
The delivery service was first tested in 100 stores in Miami, Florida and the company has to decided to expand given its success.
While mobile ordering and pick-up will still be available at Starbucks locations, this new program will allow orders to come straight to your home or workplace.
According to Nation’s Restaurant News, 51 percent of orders were placed in-store this year—down from 61 percent in 2016—and mobile orders and payment nearly tripled.
Increasing ordering options isn’t the only way Starbucks has initiated several advancements. In July, the coffee chain announced their plans to get rid of plastic straws in over 28,000 of their stores worldwide by 2020.
They also opened their first sign language location for the deaf community in October.
