Costa Coffee has announced that its signature hand-crafted coffee and selected food items are available for delivery as part of a new partnership with the UK’s leading food delivery service, Deliveroo.
In a first for Costa Coffee, six central London stores - Moorgate Pronto, Shepherd’s Bush, Rathbone Place, Bethnal Green Road, Essex Road, Tooley Street - are offering the service as part of a trial period to explore easy and efficient options for customers to access great coffee. A Deliveroo delivery fee of £2.50 will be applied to each order.
Customers can order through the Deliveroo website or app and choose from a range of coffee options as well as a host of sweet treats perfect for a pick-me up or meeting catering.
In addition to the speed of the delivery offered by Deliveroo, the Costa Coffee service uses a new coffee carrier pack designed to ensure optimum product quality on delivery.
Arslan Sharif, Global Digital & Loyalty Director at Costa Coffee, said, “We know our customers are looking for convenient ways to enjoy great coffee and we wanted to explore how we could satisfy their need for speed and convenience – by delivering it straight to their door.
'By partnering with Deliveroo we’re making the experience easy for people who are at work or comfy at home, looking for their Costa Coffee fix without having to go into a store or visit one of our Express coffee machines. We look forward to seeing the response to the trial and using the results to explore more ways we can offer a great service for customers.”
Joe Groves, spokesperson at Deliveroo, said, “Deliveroo is constantly looking for new ways to ensure customers have access to amazing food and drink whenever and wherever they want it, and so we are delighted to work with Costa Coffee to bring our customers their favourite coffee straight to the door. This partnership will again show people that, on Deliveroo, every option and every occasion is catered for.”
The delivery news comes following the successful roll out of Costa Collect in London stores last year, a service which allows Costa Coffee Club customers to place an order on the Costa Coffee app and collect their coffee in-store.
