Speciality coffee roaster 200 Degrees has opened its new coffee shop in the popular McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet today (14 November) – ready to welcome the flurry of festive shoppers
The new 80-seater shop at Junction 28 of the M1 will bring 16 new jobs to the region, offering freshly roasted coffee sourced directly from the 200 Degrees roast house just 30 minutes away in Nottingham, alongside delicious fresh food, and a range of home brewing gadgets and gifts.
Tom Vincent, co-founder and director at 200 Degrees, said: “We are delighted to be opening our first out of town location in the UK and look forward to welcoming staff and visitors to the outlet in time for the festive season.
“As it’s that special time of year, we will have our highly trained staff on hand for advice and to demonstrate equipment to anyone looking to purchase for themselves or for loved ones in the lead up to Christmas.
“We’re keen to welcome fellow workers and flagging shoppers looking to enjoy quality coffee, a bite to eat, use of the WIFI and a relaxed, unique shopping experience. We’ll also be open early for freshly made breakfasts and our takeaway service is second to none if you’re looking to grab a brew and a bite to go.”
200 Degrees, which was set up by Tom and his business partner Rob Darby in 2012, has 11 ‘distinctively independent’ coffee shops as well as its roast house near Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The company has further plans to grow, with a new shop planned for Manchester later this year.
Paul Tyler, centre manager, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Nottingham-based coffee roasters, 200 Degrees Coffee to McArthurGlen Designer Outlet East Midlands. We are passionate about supporting local businesses and are delighted to be able to offer our guests another independent food and beverage offering.”
