Starbucks Launches Delivery in Chicago

The company says 95 percent of its menu will be available for order, with a flat $2.49 delivery fee

Starbucks rolled out its delivery service in Chicago beginning Monday. 

The company aims to offer delivery at nearly one-fourth of its U.S. company-operated coffee shops.

Chicago is the third city to see the delivery service, in partnership with Uber Eats, after San Francisco and Miami. It tested the idea in 200 Miami stores last fall.

In December, company executives laid out plans to expand deliveries in the U.S. and China this year. The company said will expand to some stores in New York, Boston, Washington and Los Angeles in coming weeks.

Starbucks says 95 percent of its core menu will be available for order using the Uber Eats mobile app. There will be a $2.49 booking fee.

Executives say delivery works best in dense urban areas where Uber Eats' delivery fees are lower because of high demand, and customers spend more than they do in stores.
