For many people, the morning routine during the week consists of grabbing coffee on the way into work. Although there are many locations to complete this task, Costa Coffee has become one of most popular. Founded in London in 1971, they now have their headquarters in Bedfordshire serving sandwiches, tea, iced drinks, snacks, and, of course, coffee. As of last year, they had over 2,000 different outlets in the UK with the first store outside of the UK launching in Dubai before the turn of the millennium.
As well as being synonymous with high streets, Costa Coffee has also expanded into airports, hotels, shopping centres, and even large Next, Waterstone's, Homebase, and WHSmith stores. Furthermore, they have some small outlets located at railway stations, hospitals, and cinemas. With this in mind, it doesn't take too long to find a Costa Coffee outlet wherever you may be in the UK.
