CANTON, Mass., Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Baskin-Robbins is making convenience a little sweeter by providing its guests with the option to order their favorite scoops, shakes, sundaes, Creature Creations® and more for contactless delivery through Uber Eats.
With this new collaboration, over 1,600 Baskin-Robbins restaurants across the country will be available for delivery through the Uber Eats app and UberEats.com. To celebrate, fans who spend $10 or more on Baskin-Robbins through Uber Eats will receive a $0 delivery fee – no promo code necessary – from October 29 to November 4, 2020.* This sweet new delivery option and offer arrive just in time for the Halloween weekend, so fans can enjoy an ice cream treat no matter how they choose to celebrate this year. For those who would rather dress up their ice cream than take to the streets in their own costumes, new DIY Creature Creations® Kits are the perfect activity to keep the kids entertained at home. Whether they are into unicorns, monsters or mermaids, these kits offer a fun way to deck out their favorite Baskin-Robbins scoops from the comfort of home.
To place an order, customers can select their nearest Baskin-Robbins or Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin' combo location in the Uber Eats app or on the website, choose their ice cream treats and beverages, customize them just the way they like and then checkout. Guests will also be able to track their order as it's prepared, picked up and delivered by their Uber Eats driver, who will leave the items at their door for a contactless experience.
"We're excited to bring the convenience of delivery to even more guests who are looking for ways to enjoy their favorite Baskin-Robbins treats at home," said Nicole Boutwell, Director of Digital Marketing, Baskin-Robbins. "As people continue to find comfort in ice cream and sweet treats from our specialty ice cream shops, we're very excited to team up with Uber Eats to expand our easy ordering and contactless delivery options to our loyal guests nationwide."
"At Uber Eats, we're always exploring new ways to bring our customers the food they love, right to their doorstep," said Stephane Ficaja, Head of Uber Eats for the US & Canada. "That's why we're excited to bring together Uber's speed and reliability and Baskin-Robbins' 75 years of expertise in ice cream and frozen treats."
The vast majority of Baskin-Robbins stores across the country remain open and have enhanced preventative health and safety measures in place. In an ongoing effort to help keep its guests and restaurant employees safe, Baskin-Robbins is currently limiting service to drive-thru, carry-out and curbside pick-up at select locations, in addition to delivery at participating locations with Uber Eats and DoorDash. Guests can order and pay contactless through the Baskin-Robbins mobile app for a quick, grab-and-go experience.
