Costa Coffee is steaming ahead with its self-serve coffee concept “Costa Express” putting it on track to achieve its target of 8,000 machines in operation by 2020.
The self-serve machines have undergone extensive re-branding and technological developments over the past few years and now an average of 70 new machines are installed every month.
The strength of the Costa brand combined with the convenience of the self-serve format has proven successful, and the machines can be found in a wide variety of public locations.
Costa Express managing director Murray McGowan said: “Costa Express has enjoyed tremendous growth from 877 machines in 2011 to 5,000 today. We have always been confident that combining our superior technology with the same quality coffee and fresh milk found on the high street through Costa, the nation’s favourite coffee shop, we would be able to deliver an unbeatable coffee experience to on-the-go customers”.
