LONDON, UK – Following successful trials in certain London locations, Starbucks UK is expanding its delivery service partnership with Uber Eats in the British capital. From this summer, the service will be available across the whole of central London and later this year it will roll out in major cities across the UK too, but no official launch date has been set yet.
“The initial success of Starbucks Delivers in the UK has shown us that customers are excited about the convenience and flexibility of ordering their favourite beverage for delivery. We’re looking forward to making this service available to even more people across London this summer,” David Rose, director, customer engagement and loyalty EMEA at Starbucks, said.
“We’re delighted by how quickly Londoners have embraced a new way to get their Starbucks favourites delivered at the press of a button. We’re excited to deliver even more breakfasts at home and coffee to the office as we announce the expansion of our partnership,” Uber Eats EMEA head Rodrigo Arévalo added.
Starbucks is also set to trial new recyclable and compostable takeaway coffee cups in major cities across the UK, US and Canada.
