Food & Drink: Starbucks Canada to close cafes and move to drive-thru and delivery only

According to a press release, Starbucks will close access to its cafes and move to drive-thru and delivery only. Some exceptions will be made for those cafes serving in or around hospitals and health care centers in the company’s efforts to serve first responders, healthcare workers, and their incredible support staff.

Starbucks Canada president Lori Digulla made the announcement in a letter to all partners today. “Thank you so much for all you’re doing, and above all else know that all our decisions are balancing partner and customer care, with science and facts, to serve our communities in the most impactful way we can as long as it is safe to do so,” she wrote.
