If you rejoiced at the news of Taco Bell's order-ahead app, prepare to freak out. Another of your favorite chain eateries is making it easy for you to avoid social interaction, and coffee fans nationwide might just dance in the streets at the news — Starbucks is rolling out a delivery service!
Take a few deep breaths and get it together, because delivery and order-ahead services won't be offered until next year. Furthermore, only Starbucks loyalty members will be able to utilize the service, incentivizing membership for introverts and couch potatoes everywhere. While waiting until mid-2015 for delivery lattes might sound like torture to you, it's for the best — all the kinks in the app and drink transportation will be ironed out by then, because the service begins testing in Oregon next month.
"Imagine the ability to create a standing order of Starbucks delivered hot to your desk daily. That's our version of ecommerce on steroids," stated Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz during the app's announcement on Thursday, and we can definitely imagine it. While the wait for delivery coffee will be tough, caffeinating in the comfort of work or home seems well worth it.
