Inching your way through early morning traffic can be a pretty bruising start to the day. Not on the roads. Or even on the subway. But before you make it out of Starbucks. Gridlocked between a breakfast panini and a pumpkin spice latte, you’re likely to get more than a little grouchy.
Deep breath. If you’re no longer prepared to stand in line for your caffeine fix, help is on the way. Starbucks is set to launch its own mobile ordering and payment system in the second half of 2015. Place an order on your device and your grande cappuccino will be delivered hot and frothy to your desk. Every day, if you so wish.
The delivery service is an almost inevitable extension of the company’s enthusiastic embrace of technology – more than 12 million customers are already using its mobile app.
As a way to avoid the morning bottleneck, it all sounds good to us. Wonder if they’ll deliver caramel waffles too?
