7 June 2022: Starbucks® licensee Cobra Coffee will be opening a new store at Deane Retail Park, Taunton, on Wednesday 8 June, creating 16 new jobs.
This will be the second store in the town operated by a regional co-operative family which Cobra Coffee is part of.
To celebrate the opening, the store will be offering 50 lucky customers complimentary reusable cups every day for the first week.
Store Manager Hayley Brown said: “I’m really excited to be joining Starbucks® and leading the team in this beautiful new Drive Thru.
“We have such a passionate team from the local area who are excited to welcome local customers from the 8 June!”
Customers are invited to enjoy their favourite Starbucks® beverage and Starbucks® UK now proudly serves a broad range of dairy alternative options for free, including oat, soya, almond, coconut, and the exclusive Starbucks™ Original Nut Blend. Customers can also try Starbucks new Orange Mango Refresha® Drink, joining fan favourites, the Strawberry Acai Refresha® Drink and the Pink Coconut Starbucks Refresha® Drink.
The new Taunton store will be signed up to the Too Good To Go scheme – a leading surplus food app which allows customers to buy surplus food and drink products which are near to their expiry date.
The store has a contemporary design, offering customers the opportunity to enjoy a handcrafted cup of coffee and relax with the comfortable seating and free wi-fi.
Those looking to recharge while on the go can use the convenient Drive Thru lane. Delivery will also be fully available within the month to all customers via Uber Eats. Customers can also order via the Starbucks® UK App, available for iPhone® and Android™, to order ahead, skip the queue and collect to takeaway.
Starbucks® is committed to 100% ethically sourced coffee in partnership with Conservation International. The cornerstone of its ethical sourcing approach to buying coffee is Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) Practices.
Starbucks® offers a 25p discount to all customers who bring a reusable cup when purchasing a drink.
The new store is conveniently located at Deane Retail Park, Hankridge Way, Taunton, TA1 2LR, and will be open from 6.30am to 7:00pm Monday to Saturday, and from 7:30am to 6:00pm Sunday.
