Over two-thirds of Starbucks Canada locations are now offering grab-and-go service, which means customers can go inside a cafe to place their order to go, but all in-cafe and patio seating will remain closed.
The grab-and-go model continues to prioritize safety
When a customer walks into a cafe to order at the counter, they will notice floor markers and signage directing them where to stand to remain physically distant.
There will also be a plexi-shield at the counter as an added barrier to protect staff and customers.
All Starbucks staff will wear facial coverings and adhere to Starbucks safety measures.
With grab-and-go service, customers now have the option to walk into a cafe, order at the counter and pay with any method, though Starbucks encourages downloading and using the Starbucks App for contactless pay.
Customers can also order ahead and pay with their Starbucks App to save time.
Mobile orders can be picked up at the designated handoff area inside the cafe or at the drive-thru.
Starbucks plans to allow customers to dine in its cafes and patios in a limited capacity.
The timing will be determined on a community-by-community basis, and Starbucks will work closely with local leadership, health authorities and provincial governments as the environment and regulations change.
Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
