Ladies, I don’t know what we did right. Maybe it was alternating water with our vodka-sodas, or saying no to the hot mistake who asked us to go home with him. Whatever it was, fate is finally on our side and we have received the ultimate, caffeinated gift. The best part? We won’t even have to leave our apartments to receive it. The world as we know it is about to change, because Starbucks is going to start delivering.
Yes, you read that correctly. Starbucks will deliver coffee to your doorstep.
I thought UberKITTENS was the best thing to happen to delivery since, well, ever, but once again, Starbucks has made everyone else its bitch.
Do you know what this means? No more small talk with baristas who don’t really care about how your day is going. No more depression when he or she once again spells your name absurdly incorrectly. No more having to wear sunglasses indoors to hide your hangover just to get your caffeine fix. No more leaving your apartment when you just can’t put on pants.
Yeah, Starbucks just made heaven a place on Earth.
According to a conference call with some investors, the delivery of food and drinks will start in the second half of 2015. This seems far off, but when it comes down to it, we have Thanksgiving, the winter holidays, New Year’s Eve, my birthday, Valentine’s Day, spring break, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Cinco de Mayo, and then violà! It’s the second half of 2015. It’s basically here.
If you’re a member of Starbucks’s loyalty program (if you’re not, you’re doing it wrong) then you’ll be the first to avoid waiting in lines. The company has been focusing on using mobile apps for a while, which is why we’ve been able to pay with our phones for so long. With the success of that, Starbucks decided to take it a step further, and we will soon be able to place our order on the Starbucks application and have it delivered hot (or cold, if that’s how you like it) to our exact location.
Ugh, they just get us.
CEO Howard Schultz said it perfectly: “Imagine the ability to create a standing order of Starbucks delivered [hot] to your desk daily.”
We have, Howie. We have.
