Grubhub now delivers Starbucks, too

Date:


Grubhub will partner with Starbucks to deliver beverages and food to US customers starting this month, the food delivery app announced on June 6th.

Starbucks will be accessible through the Grubhub mobile app and website in Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Illinois first, starting this month before expanding nationwide by August. Customers will be able to buy most beverages and food available on the Starbucks menu and can customize their orders as well.

It’s not the only major partnership Grubhub’s made recently either that could give the company an edge. Last week, Amazon added Grubhub to its website and app and made GrubHub Plus permanently free for its Prime members. Grubhub Plus is the food delivery app’s $9.99 monthly membership program that waives delivery fees for orders from merchants like Starbucks.

Meanwhile, the news also comes after Starbucks reported a decline in same-store sales in April for the first time since 2020. At the same time, the company experienced double-digit growth in the US delivery business this past quarter, prompting former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz to call for a strategic overhaul and to “reinvent” its mobile ordering and payment platform. 

“Our new partnership with Grubhub will help fuel this growth by increasing availability of Starbucks products to Grubhub’s tens of millions of customers,” Meg Mathes, vice president of digital experiences at Starbucks, said.
