Starbucks curbside pickup

Starbucks to begin testing curbside pickup in Canada

Canadians will soon be able to pick up a Starbucks order without leaving the car.

From July 9, the coffee store chain will begin testing curbside pickup in 10 stores across Ontario. A further 20 additional test locations will be rolled out throughout the summer.

The initiative will be powered through the Starbucks app, which will allow customers to order, pay ahead and choose the curbside pickup option at participating locations.

Starbucks lovers can park in a designated curbside parking spot and check-in using the app. The store will be notified of the customer’s arrival and a barista will deliver the order straight to their car.

The format will allow for a reduced contact experience to help protect the health and well-being of all customers and employees.

With restrictions now easing across the country, many Starbucks locations are also open for dine-in and patio dining.
