Starbucks on the Go is the self-service Starbucks brand, though its full name isn't always used. It is known for its allegiance to Sainsbury's, but it is also used at shops operated by Welcome Break and EG Group.

The machines were launched in 2012, soon after Costa launched Costa Express, and Starbucks immediately said they wanted thousands of them. These were mainly used at Sainsbury's supermarkets, and Euro Garages service areas. By happy coincidence, Euro Garages later introduced Sainsbury's stores to their service areas, and those stores also featured a Starbucks on the Go machine.

Another established partner of Starbucks was Welcome Break, but they had already become locked into working with Costa Express. Welcome Break changed to using Starbucks on the Go in 2018, making this the first time the Starbucks machines would be widely available on the motorway.

Starbucks have recently begun to phase out the Starbucks on the Go name in favour of We Proudly Serve Starbucks, a name also used by independent cafes which use Starbucks coffee beans in their drinks.
