Roadchef’s first standalone Costa Coffee drive through opens
It will be open for takeaway only while Durham remains in tier three.
A million-pound investment in Durham’s motorway service area facilities by Roadchef saw a new Costa Coffee drive through open recently at the Integra 61 development, just opposite the main services site. As a result of Roadchef’s £500,000 investment in the drive through, 15 new jobs have been created in the area.
Additional investment has also been spent on a full rebuild for the existing Costa Coffee in Roadchef’s Durham services, as well as a total refurbishment of the WHSmith shop and the introduction of the first McDonald’s drive through on the motorway network. In line with government guidelines, it will be open for takeaway only while Durham remains in tier three.
Mark Fox, CEO of Roadchef, said: “We have a real confidence the Durham area following our successful launch of the UK’s first and only McDonald’s drive through on the motorway here. Integra 61 is an exciting new development to be a part of, and Costa Coffee is an ever-popular brand, so we are delighted to work with them to develop our first stand-alone Costa Coffee drive through unit.”
