Something to perk up coffee lovers. All the signs are pointing to Costa Coffee taking on a yet-to-be-constructed new outlet in Rotherham.
Plans were been approved earlier this year for a new a drive thru café / restaurant on land close to the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP).
Harworth Group plc, put together the proposals for a development on land adjacent to its headquarters, Advantage House, which is close to the Sheffield Parkway on Poplar Way.
Recently submitted plans for signage at the site show that Costa Coffee are set to be the operators of the drive thru store.
The total floor area proposed is 1,800 sq ft and the existing site access onto Poplar Way will provide access to the 36 space car park and drive thru lane.
The Poplar Way frontage is set to be glazed and cladded with materials to be reflective of the surrounding area, such as the silver aluminium used on the AMP.
Costa Coffee now has over 2,600 coffee shops in the UK and more than 1,300 plus shops in 32 overseas markets. There are also now more than 8,000 Costa Express self-serve machines in the UK.
Founded in London by Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa in 1971, the chain is the fastest growing coffee shop business in the UK. Coca-Cola completed the acquisition of Costa Coffee from Whitbread PLC in 2019 in a deal worth $4.9 billion.
The chain is starting to reopen some of its drive thru locations as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
