Mobile Ordering and Online Privacy
The customer strolls past the long line of caffeine-deprived commuters and saddles up to the bar, just as the barista presents a drink already prepared to her exact specifications: a grande, no-whip, extra-hot mocha with nonfat milk and an extra shot. Is the barista a psychic? Nope. A few minutes before arriving at the store, the customer used her smartphone to order and pay for her drink via Starbucks’ mobile app. A growing number of restaurants are following Starbucks’ lead and offering customers the option of ordering and paying ahead by way of their smartphones.
