Starbucks announced Thursday it's planning a new online and mobile service that will deliver, yes —deliver — coffee, drinks and snacks of your desire right to your home or office in select locations.
Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz told investors on a conference call said, "Imagine the ability to create a standing order of Starbucks delivered hot to your desk daily. That’s our version of e-commerce on steroids."
GeekWire points out they're actually a little late to the game in what appears to be a growing market. Other online food and beverage delivery services like Postmates, grubHub and Caviar have already hit the market. Taco Bell recently announced it will offer ordering via a mobile app.
The new venture also comes at a good time for the Seattle-based coffee chain.
Stocks dipped a bit after announcing it fell short of fourth-quarter earnings, though the company's revenue actually jumped 10 percent, which shows the expectations the company has to live up to.
The branches are growing, however. According to Forbes, the company "opened 500 net new stores across the globe in the fourth quarter, bringing its total to 21,366 stores in 65 countries."
CNBC says the new online and mobile delivery service will start in Portland, Oregon, next month and will spread to other locations throughout the country next year.
