While you can order your fave Starbucks drinks and snacks from various food delivery apps, sometimes there’s nothing like ordering your drink in person or biting into a croissant fresh from the oven. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Starbucks was quick to shut its doors in an effort to curb the spread.
However, the coffee chain has started to prepare for the reopening of locations and resuming operations by the end of may.
To get the ball rolling, Starbucks Canada stores will offer drive-thru, delivery, and pick-up only service.
Then, the company will monitor and adjust operations as necessary making decisions to open additional stores or expand its services (like curbside pick-up or walk-in orders) on a community-by-community basis. Starbucks Canada will be working closely with local leadership, health authorities, and provincial governments as the environment and regulations regarding COVID-19 change.
Starbucks will be taking some major safety precautions to ensure the safety of its employees and customers.
All employees will be required to wear a facial covering if they are working at a store and ahead of each shift, they will be required to take their temperature and use the COVID-19 Virtual Coach to ensure they are ready and able to work.
In addition, the company will be installing plexi-shields at all POS areas as well as extra cleaning and sanitizing of all surfaces.
“A lot has changed over the last six weeks. As we enter this new phase, we know that we can evolve how we serve our customers as restrictions begin to lift and we are ready to continue to be fluid in how we serve our communities,” says Starbucks Canada, president, Lori Digulla.
