Starbucks COO Rosalind Brewer announced in the company’s earnings call that the coffee chain plans to reopen 90% of stores by June.
According to the report, Starbucks will open 30 locations to kick off phase one of their reopening. No seating will be available, but costumers will be able to enter the store for their drinks.
Starbucks closed 50% of their stores during the outbreak of Covid-19. The stores that remained open only serviced their drive-thru. The company also announced plans for curbside pick up.
Brewer said “later in the summer, we’ll add curbside access to our stores. We’re managing what we’re learning and applying what we learn accordingly…”
“As we begin the recovery process that requires ongoing monitoring to rapidly adapt and recover, we are well-adapted in our digital assets to expand service to customers and focus on the customer experience, beverage innovation and digital assets,” Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson said during the call.
According to the earnings call, Starbucks saw a 25% drop in sales on average.
