Starbucks announced today that all its company-owned stores around the UK now support its Order and Pay feature that allows parched customers in need of a hasty caffeine fix to skip the queue altogether.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Now, however, the option is built straight into the existing Starbucks app for Android and is available across the whole of the UK.
There is one caveat to that, however: it only works at company-owned stores, not franchises, so if your local store isn’t offering the option, that’ll be why. There’s no particularly easy way to see which stores are franchised or not, but you can check out the Starbucks store finder and filter by the options to find a local one that supports mobile ordering.
