Starbucks has expanded its delivery reach across Canada via a new partnership with DoorDash.
The Seattle-based coffee chain said DoorDash will offer delivery from 500 Starbucks stores nationwide, expanding its Starbucks Delivers channel to nearly 50 new towns and cities for the first time, including Saint John in New Brunswick, Squamish in British Columbia and the small eastern province of Prince Edward Island.
Starbucks Canada, which operates more than 1,400 outlets, has offered delivery via Uber Eats since August 2019.
The Uber Eats partnership was expanded to more than 500 Starbucks stores across Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Nova Scotia, Winnipeg and Saskatoo in July 2020.
“As we continue to innovate the Starbucks Experience with new and impactful ways to connect digitally, we are excited to expand how our customers can enjoy their Starbucks favourites wherever they may be. Delivery remains a major growth opportunity for Starbucks, and our new partnership with DoorDash will help us reach even more Starbucks customers from coast-to-coast,” said Lori Digulla, General Manager, Starbucks Canada.
In January 2023, Starbucks and DoorDash expanded their US partnership across Florida, Georgia, Northern California and Texas, with full US coverage expected by the end of March 2023.
DoorDash also operates delivery services for McCafé, Second Cup and Tim Hortons across select Canadian cities.
