Starbucks completes U.S. rollout of ‘order ahead’ feature, will hit Canada & UK next month
If you haven’t got time to stand around in a Starbucks queue to place your order, the good news is that the company has completed the U.S. rollout of its ‘order ahead’ service, which allows you to place and pay for your order on your iPhone before reaching the store.
The service started as a test in Portland before gradually expanding across the USA. It says that it is now available in all 7,400 wholly-owned stores. Note that it is not supported by franchised stores, which tend to be smaller.
Starbucks says that the service will be introduced in Canada and the UK next month. The app is a free download from iTunes.
