Lavazza joins coffee revolution with roll-out of shops
Italian coffee giant Lavazza plans to open nearly 400 shops over the next decade across the UK, in the latest sign of the British public’s seemingly insatiable demand for their daily caffeine hit.
The capital will be a key target for Lavazza Espression, the coffee maker’s new store format, with 50 shops planned for Greater London over the next three years. It will open its first shop on Villiers Street by Charing Cross station in April and another on Cannon Street in June, while others are set for Derby, Leeds and Newbury over the coming months.
Lavazza Espression, which currently has just one standalone shop in Manchester’s Trafford Centre, has appointed property consultant Cushman & Wakefield to advise on its UK roll-out.
Matt Illingworth, a partner at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Lavazza Espression is a new and exciting concept which will give UK customers a real taste and experience of Italy on their doorstep.”
In addition to Lavazza’s coffee, the shop sells Italian food and a selection of more than 40 non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages.
Luigi Lavazza founded the coffee maker in 1895 by opening its first store in Turin, Italy.
