Starbucks has partnered with UK-based online food delivery company Deliveroo for a new home delivery service in Ireland.
Under the partnership, Deliveroo will deliver Starbucks products to customers across Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Dundalk, Drogheda and Naas.
Starbucks Ireland marketing and category director Celine Gilmer said: “The company is always looking at ways to meet the needs of those who are unable to visit us in-store.
“With this new partnership with Deliveroo, we can ensure that many more customers can connect with us in ways that best suit their needs and lifestyles.”
The products will be delivered from more than 60 Starbucks outlets.
According to Deliveroo research, 23% of people in Ireland consume coffee more than once a day.
The majority of these people drink cappuccinos, the research further revealed, followed in popularity by latte beverages.
Deliveroo Ireland regional manager Paddy Quinlan said: “The company is constantly looking to bring more choice to its customers and this partnership means customers will be able to enjoy Starbucks coffee, beverages and food, delivered to their door in under 30 minutes.”
The partnership with Starbucks in Ireland is part of Deliveroo’s growth plans in the region and follows its recent activity expanding service to six new counties, namely Carlow, Kilkenny, Laois, Kildare, Louth and Meath.
Last September, Deliveroo announced that it would offer free delivery service to Amazon Prime members in the UK and Ireland.
It agreed to provide this service from restaurants, such as KFC and Pizza Express, as well as grocers and supermarkets.
