Starbucks expands delivery pilot to San Francisco in partnership with Uber Eats

Starbucks Corp. said Jan. 22 that it expanded a coffee delivery pilot with Uber Technologies Inc.'s restaurant delivery arm, Uber Eats, to San Francisco.

The Seattle-based company plans to further expand its delivery service, called Starbucks Delivers, to select stores in Boston; Chicago; Los Angeles; New York; and Washington, D.C., in the coming weeks.

The expansion follows an initial test in Miami in the fall of 2018.

The company added that it is on track to roll out the service to nearly a quarter of its company-owned stores in the U.S., a move first announced during a Dec. 13, 2018, investor conference.

Starbucks Delivers, which enables customers to access the service through Uber Eats' mobile app, will be available in seven U.S. cities by the spring of 2019.

A new Starbucks-Uber Eats pilot is scheduled to start later in January in London, which will become the first European city to gain access to the coffee delivery service.

The coffee giant expects to further expand the project globally in 2019.

Starbucks also has a tie-up with Uber Eats in Japan since November 2018, and it has other delivery initiatives in India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Mexico, Colombia and Chile.

In China, the coffee chain already offers delivery in more than 2,000 stores across 30 cities through a partnership with Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and food delivery service Ele.me.
