Boosting Starbucks drive-thru efficiency with real-time insights and gamification.

In the quick-service sector, speed is everything. We tackled this head-on for Starbucks, focusing on boosting their drive-thru efficiency. Our first move was to upgrade their communication systems and introduce real-time process tracking. This not only enabled performance benchmarking across locations but also introduced an exciting gamified twist, making fast service a rewarding challenge for the staff.

Our approach

To boost Starbucks drive-thru speed, we introduced real-time tracking and gamification, to motivate faster, more efficient service.

HME audio communication system

We enhanced drive-thru communication in 346 UK Starbucks stores by installing HME audio systems, ensuring clear and precise order exchanges between customers and the kitchen staff.

Drive timer system

We have introduced sensors to monitor the time it takes from a customer's arrival at the speaker post to payment and order handover. This helps us identify areas where we can speed up service, improving both business efficiency and customer experience.

Service gamification

By tracking service times and using a software upgrade to gamify the metrics, we've enabled stores to view and compare their performance, creating a competitive yet fun environment. This approach motivates staff to improve service speed, increasing overall efficiency.

"By focusing more on the process before we see our clients at the first window, we build loyalty which we secure in our team with an innovative game."

The result

Making results visible and measuring the same processes in multiple locations changed the mindset of all drive thru employees. Within three months, the average order time dropped by 30 seconds, and over a minute during busy Saturdays. Happier customers and an engaged staff were the winning outcomes.
