You love your coffee and hate having to wait in line? Starbucks will allow you to skip the line with its new app. How does it work? Download their new app and place your order via your smartphone, walk/drive to your nearest location that you selected, walk in and pick it up. And best of all, the company’s mobile software sorts your payment too, which certainly makes the process that much friendly. But wait there is more, plans for a delivery option are in the works for customers who belong to Starbucks loyalty program — but only in select markets.
“Imagine the ability to create a standing order of Starbucks delivered hot to your desk daily,” CEO Howard Schultz said. “That’s our version of e-commerce on steroids.” The new version of the mobile app is set to arrive in December, with Portland, Oregon getting it first before a nation-wide rollout in early 2015.
