Starbucks Expands Mobile Order & Pay Platform, Meaning You'll Get Your Coffee And Food Even Faster

After Starbucks launched a new store for seriously impatient customers on Wall Street, it appeared that the chain was making an effort to speed up their coffee-making processes. Starbucks announced on Tuesday that it would extend its Mobile Order & Pay offering to 3,400 more stores, so it seems like the company is doing just that.

The Mobile Order & Pay program was first offered in 2014 as part of a pilot program at Starbucks locations in Portland, Ore. The program allows users to order food or beverages from their Starbucks app and pay before they get into the store. Customers still have to pick up the items at their nearest Starbucks, but they won't have to wait in line.

The pilot program was successful in Portland and the feature was rolled out to 650 Starbucks stores. Now, Starbucks is bringing the app to 3,400 more stores and 21 additional states.

Starbucks says you'll be able to access the app feature this month if you're in:

Alabama Alaska Arizona California (South and Central) Colorado Florida Georgia Idaho Kansas Louisiana Mississippi Montana Nebraska Nevada New Mexico North Carolina North Dakota Oklahoma Oregon South Carolina South Dakota Texas Utah Virginia Washington Wyoming

Currently, Mobile Pay & Order is only available for iPhone users, but Starbucks says they have plans to expand the program to Android in 2015. Until then, you'll just have to schlep to a Starbs and wait in line.

The domed exterior of this Starbucks gives this decidedly American corporation an old-world makeover.
