We are delighted to announce that Costa Coffee has leased a new West End flagship store comprising approximately 1,500 sq ft on ground floor at Portland House, 4 Great Portland Street, which is close to the junction of Oxford Street and Market Place.
Costa coffee was first poured on our shores in 1971 at 9 Newport Street, London, by Sergio and Bruno Costa. Today, just a few metres away from where they first set up, the Costa Roastery produces the same unique Mocha Italia blend that the Costa brothers worked so hard to create.
Costa Coffee, part of Whitbread, is one of the largest British coffee chains in terms of stores in the United Kingdom with excess of 850 outlets. Its outlets can be found in airports and within Waterstone’s bookstores, W. H. Smith and Homebase stores, Abbey banks, Marriott Hotels, Empire Cinemas, Tesco, Pizza Hut, Beefeater and in some workplaces. Smaller sub-units are also set up in train stations throughout the UK.
Costa Coffee also has branches in Bahrain, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Ireland, Kuwait, Lebanon, Jordan, Oman, Poland, Qatar, Pakistan, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and United Arab Emirates. Their biggest store is located in Dubai and can seat up to 320 people.
The new store will open shortly following a comprehensive refurbishment of the site.
