Craving a latte from Starbucks, but don’t feel like leaving the comfort of your home?

As of Thursday, you won’t have to.

Earlier this summer, Starbucks announced it was partnering with Uber Eats to offer delivery service in locations across the country. The partnership goes into effect Thursday, allowing Canadians in select cities in Nova Scotia, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. using Uber Eats to order Starbucks drinks and food to their door.

Starbucks first began partnering with third-party delivery companies in the United States in 2018, and has since expanded in countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, China, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Brazil, Mexico and Chile.

Starbucks said in a statement released last month that partnering with Uber Eats will allow the company to reach new customers, as well as their existing ones in a new way.

“Starbucks will leverage Uber’s expertise as a quick and reliable delivery provider that is already well-established in offering customers a premier experience in a growing mobile and on-demand economy,” the coffee chain said.
