The whole US will get the delivery option by this August.

Imagine this… You really want to get your go-to Starbucks order (a Trenti raspberry swirl double fat swicy popping pearls with eighty-six shots of espresso), but you don’t want to go all the way down the block to your local store. Well, good news, ya lazy bum: Grubhub is finally teaming up with Starbucks to bring that order I just made up directly to your home.

“Customer demand to get Starbucks delivered continues to increase, as evidenced by double-digit growth in the U.S. delivery business this past quarter, indicating that our customers continue to want convenience in their everyday lives,” said Meg Mathes, vice president of digital experiences at Starbucks via a press release provided to Guilty Eats. “Our new partnership with Grubhub will help fuel this growth by increasing availability of Starbucks products to Grubhub’s tens of millions of customers, via a leading delivery provider.”

Added Liz Bosone, vice president of enterprise partnerships at Grubhu, “By joining forces with a beloved national brand like Starbucks, we’re offering customers more of what they want on Grubhub while strengthening our enterprise offering and growing our merchant supply in markets nationwide. We’re proud to offer national and independent restaurants on our platform — a complementary duo — to give customers more choices and build loyalty.”

Love to build loyalty, it’s one of my favorite things to do!

That said, it might be a little while until Starbucks is available on Grubhub in your area. As of this month, Starbucks delivery will be available on Grubhub in select markets in three states only: Illinois, Colorado, and Pennsylvania. The brands promise they’ll expand to all 50 states eventually, with a goal of August.

To answer a few questions about how this works… First of all, you probably figured out this part, but you order Starbucks through the Grubhub app – not the Starbucks app. Next, per recent discussions about Starbucks and their pace – the coffee chain has been pretty adamant about increased transparency around the times their orders take – you’ll be able to track every step of the process, in the Grubhub app, same as you would in the Starbucks app.

Starbucks has also created some new delivery solutions to make sure everything travels safely, including two-cup to-go trays, new shopping bags, and more so that delivery drivers can take multiple Starbucks orders at the same time.

And per my very funny joke about bonkers Starbucks orders, while you won’t be able to get everything on the menu, you will be able to get most of the items and customize everything from espresso shots to flavors, milk varieties, and the roasts used. Just, you know, be respectful. Maybe you don’t need those five extra flavors in there?
