Starbucks to begin re-opening stores from 14 May

The Starbucks coffee shop has unveiled plans for a phased re-opening of its UK drive-thru locations and a handful of stores where customers will be able to take away.

The company said it is making the move due to the government’s announcement that covid-19 restrictions on road travel will be eased. The stores will begin re-opening from 14 May.

Whilst its stores have been closed during lockdown, Starbucks has been testing out new operational plans and safety procedures that have already been implemented in other stores around the world. It now has 90% of its shops open in China and 85% in the US.

Starbucks UK general manager Alex Rayner has written to staff to describe the various experiences customers can expect under the modified operation, including upgraded safety protocols.

New measures include the following of a ‘To-Go’ model only, social distancing inside stores, new cleaning protocols and contactless payments  by card, phone, or the Starbucks Rewards app.  In addition, plexiglass screens will be in place across all stores.

Starbucks said all of its shops will be serving a “near-complete” beverage menu. Food will also be on offer but the menu will only  feature its most popular items.
