Starbucks partners with food delivery platform Grubhub 

Starbucks is teaming up with Grubhub to deliver coffees and customized beverages in select U.S. markets starting this month. This move aims to reach more customers, as many are choosing to eat at home due to inflation.

Initially, the largest coffeehouse chain will deliver in Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Illinois. By August, the service will expand nationwide. The announcement came on Thursday.

Since last year, Starbucks has offered delivery through DoorDash in the U.S. It also partners with Uber Eats and Postmates, the delivery services of Uber.

Recently, Starbucks reported double-digit growth in its U.S. delivery business for the past quarter.

In April, Starbucks reduced its annual sales forecast after experiencing a decline in same-store sales for the first time in nearly three years. The company faced weak demand in its two largest markets, the U.S. and China.

With Grubhub’s monthly membership program, customers can buy Starbucks drinks with no delivery charge, lower service fees, and access to exclusive offers.

Customers can order through Grubhub’s mobile app and official website.

Grubhub, a part of Just Eat NV, also delivers for restaurant and fast-food chains like McDonald’s and Wendy’s.

Starbucks has also partnered with grocery delivery platforms like Gopuff and Buyk. Additionally, it has teamed up with Starship Technologies to offer robot delivery services on college campuses.

Last week, Amazon integrated Grubhub into its website and app, allowing U.S. customers to order directly from the food delivery platform.
