Starbucks will be available for delivery in all 50 states by March, thanks to an expansion of a partnership with DoorDash.
The DoorDash-Starbucks relationship began last September with delivery in Atlanta, Sacramento and Houston, expanded later in the year to Seattle, Portland and New York. Customers within the delivery radius of Starbucks stores were able to order.
Ahead of the nationwide launch, Starbucks delivery service launched today in Texas, Georgia, Florida and Northern California.
“As customer behaviors evolve, we continue to innovate the Starbucks Experience to connect with them through meaningful and valuable digital experiences,” said Brooke O’Berry, Starbucks senior vice president of digital experiences, in a release.
To order Starbucks for delivery, customers need to use the DoorDash app rather than Starbucks’ app. Starbucks plans to offer 95% of its core menu on DoorDash.
"Customers can customize their orders within the DoorDash app, including the ability to choose the amount of syrup, type of milk, and espresso roasts," DoorDash said in a press release.
For customers with a DoorDash membership, delivery fees are waived.
The expansion of Starbucks’ partnership comes as DoorDash launched a package delivery service in early January.
Starbucks has had a deal with Uber Eats for delivery services in select markets since 2018.
