For those days where you can't even face the trip to the local Starbucks, the coffee giant is experimenting with a delivery service in certain regions.
As early as next year, Starcbucks are planning to start delivering coffee and food to you, rather than having to make you queue up like the regular folks. CEO Howard Schultz announced the plan yesterday, adding that the service will only be available to loyalty program members through a new app that the company has for mobile ordering and payment.
The Verge reported that Schultz was pretty excited about the plan, saying "Imagine the ability to create a standing order of Starbucks delivered hot to your desk daily. That's our version of e-commerce on steroids."
We can only imagine the amount of trouble they'll have with finding the right address, given that they seem to insist on getting everyone's name wrong all the time. As you might expect, there is no word on this being offered outside the US at the moment, but if it's a success there, then it will surely spread to other countries too.
