Not long from now, mobile users will be able to pay for some Starbucks coffee using their iPhones or Apple Watch. The same goes for KFC’s fried chicken and Chili’s Southwestern egg rolls.

Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, revealed as much during the Code Mobile conference held in the city of Half Moon Bay in California.
Starbucks has always been a business that is open to using the latest in mobile technology in order to better serve its customers.
