Starbucks And Uber Eats Joining Forces


These days, when you speak about coffee, one company that is almost synonymous with coffee is Starbucks, the coffee chain that was founded in 1971 that has managed to grow to a global coffee powerhouse with over 28,000 locations. Similarly, when people think about getting one place to another, they often think about an “Uber” more than a taxi. It appears as though the two powerhouses are now joining forces.

Specifically, Starbucks is teaming up with Uber Eats in order to deliver food and drinks in various cities. The idea is to offer coffee to commuters and individuals on the go in metropolitan cities such as San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and others. The service will begin in San Francisco first before it is rolled out to the other cities.

By The Numbers

Interestingly enough, Starbucks chose Miami as the test city to roll out these services in fall 2018, where the company stated that it saw “strong demand” and “repeat business”. As a result, not only will the service be launched in six cities, but in an unnamed seventh city as well, that has yet to be announced. The expansion begins today, and the company also claims that it plans on launching the service in London soon, as well, although a timeline has yet to be determined.
