Online food delivery company Deliveroo and coffee company Starbucks have announced a new home delivery partnership deal.

The tie-up means that people living in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Dundalk, Drogheda and Naas can get Starbucks products delivered to their door by Deliveroo from over 60 outlets.

Standard delivery charges will apply but consumers who subscribe to Deliveroo Plus - Deliveroo's subscription service - will see no delivery fees on any order placed.

The partnership with Starbucks is the latest move in Deliveroo's continued growth plans in Ireland, and follows the company's recent update that it has expanded its service in six new counties - Carlow, Kilkenny, Laois, Kildare, Louth and Meath.

Meanwhile research from Deliveroo shows that 23% of the Irish population drink coffee more than once a day.

Per capita, the province in Ireland which drinks the most coffee is Munster, followed by Leinster and Connacht, with Ulster consuming the least amount of coffee.

The favourite coffee tipple of Irish customers is a cappuccino (22%) closely followed by a latte (18%), the research also reveals.

Paddy Quinlan, Regional Manager for Deliveroo Ireland, said the company is constantly looking to bring more choice to its customers and this partnership means customers will be able to enjoy Starbucks coffee, beverages and food, delivered to their door in under 30 minutes.

Celine Gilmer, Director of Marketing & Category at Starbucks Ireland, said the company is always looking at ways to meet the needs of those who are unable to visit us in-store.

"With this new partnership with Deliveroo we can ensure that many more customers can connect with us in ways that best suit their needs and lifestyles," she added.
