Starbucks rolls out mobile order and pay service in Winnipeg next week
System allows advance orders to avoid lineups at Starbucks locations
Starting next week, Winnipeggers will be able to order their Starbucks coffee before they even set foot in the store.
The company's mobile order and pay system launches in all of its Winnipeg locations on March 15.
The option lets customers use an app to order their coffee in advance, pay for it electronically and pick it up in the store, skipping the line.
Estimated pickup times are shown in the app before customers confirm their orders.
It's already available in other major Canadian cities, such as Toronto and Vancouver, and mobile orders now account for nearly 20 per cent of all Starbucks transactions in Canada.
