Costa Coffee Is Reopening 29 Stores For Deliveries And Drive-Thrus Today
Costa Coffee is reopening 29 branches for deliveries and drive-thrus today (Saturday 2 May).
The chain temporarily closed all of its 200+ UK stores on 23 March due to coronavirus lockdown measures but opened two branches for delivery and two for drive-thru last week.
Now the popular coffee outlet has opened 29 further branches, some of which are available for drive-thru orders and some of which are available for delivery orders on Uber Eats.
Speaking on Friday (1 May), Costa CEO Jill McDonald said: "Last week we made the decision to re-open two Drive-Thru lanes and two stores for delivery only in line with the latest Government advice.
"The safety of our team members and customers is our number one priority and ahead of these stores re-opening, we put in place new social distancing guidelines, enhanced hygiene procedures and are providing teams with personal protective equipment.
"We have been really pleased with how well our stores teams have been able to adapt to our new ways working, allowing us to serve great coffee, as safely as possible.
"We have also received some great feedback from our customers and key workers taking advantage of enjoying a well-deserved coffee break whilst on essential journeys to or from work.
"We will be increasing the number of Drive-Thru lanes and stores open for delivery via Uber Eats from tomorrow (2 May)."
She continued: "As part of re-opening these additional stores, we are continuing to help support everyone who's keeping the country moving, delivering thousands of our Ready-to-Drink Costa Coffee cans to key workers near those stores re-opening, including hospitals, police and fire stations and NHS call centres. It's just one of our small tokens of appreciation to the people out there who are giving so much.
"Whilst most of our stores remain closed we continue to pay our store team members 100 percent pay and are incredibly grateful to those who have volunteered to work across these re-opening stores and to those who have been managing our first four stores this past week."
