South Florida first in line for Starbucks-Uber Eats delivery partnership
Uber Eats has partnered with Starbucks to deliver food and drinks in South Florida.
The partnership with the Seattle, Washington-based coffee giant (Nasdaq: SBUX) – which began Wednesday – allows people to order from 100 stores in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Breakfast, sandwiches, wraps, pastries, protein boxes and bowls are among the items available for delivery.
Uber Eats, which debuted in South Florida two years ago, has partnerships with thousands of restaurants worldwide. Other food delivery services available in the tri-county area include Postmates, Delivery Dudes and DoorDash.
“Uber Eats makes life simpler and more satisfying for those who are short on time,” said Juan Pablo Restrepo, Uber Eats general manager for South Florida. “Because of our dedication toward fast delivery, the time that you would spend waiting in line can go toward work, play, friends and family.”
Ordering food online has become trendy, and experts have said it’s expected only to grow.
