Starbucks rival Manner Coffee pairs with Meituan on delivery services · TechNode

Manner Coffee, a Chinese Starbucks rival, announced Sunday that it was partnering with life services giant Meituan for food and drink delivery. The tie-up will provide users with online delivery services for Manner, a popular coffee brand that was previously only available through in-store pick-up. The service has already been launched in cities including Shanghai and Suzhou. Manner’s move into delivery services comes amid a recent coronavirus outbreak in China, which forced the company to suspend in-store services in Shanghai and Shenzhen, on the same day last week. More than 90% of Manner’s stores are located in these two cities. In early March, the Shanghai-based coffee chain said it had plans to open more than 200 new stores, bringing its total store count to nearly 600 in the country. Meituan already supports delivery services for a group of coffee chain brands including Starbucks, Luckin, and Tim Hortons. [Manner press release, in Chinese]
