The coffee giant have also trialled their Star Kitchens in Shanghai and Hangzhou.
Starbucks has announced that their delivery services, in partnership with Alibaba-owned Ele.me, will now be available in more than 1,100 stores across 17 cities in China.
“We set out to earn our right to do coffee delivery the right way in China by leading and up leveling the standards for the entire coffee industry, with no compromise on the Starbucks quality at any step,” Belinda Wong, CEO of Starbucks China, said in an announcement.
The Starbucks Delivers platform includes spill-proof lids, tamper-proof packaging seals and Ele.me delivery containers that maintains the hot or cold temperature of the beverage.
Last August saw the coffee giant officially partnering with Alibaba’s Ele.me delivery platform to better cement themselves in the competitive Chinese coffee market.
Starbucks also trialled their Star Kitchens in two Hema supermarkets in Shanghai and Hangzhou to bring delivery fulfillment capabilities of existing and future Starbucks stores.
