3, 2, 1… LIFT OFF! Our first ever store in England is now open, serving our signature Proper Coffee & Great Grub every day from 7:30am to 6pm! We started the day with a massive (socially distanced) queue of curious Lancastrians, excited by the prospect of something new. The team was raring to go, so at 10am the floodgates were opened in Lancaster.
The first 10 groups of customers had their entire order for free, and the next 100 got a coffee on the house. Throughout the day, staff were giving out free coffee tokens to celebrate the opening. Over the next week, if you see someone walking around town carrying a MASSIVE Bob & Berts logo or cup cardboard cut-out, make sure to stop and chat – you’ll get a coffee token!
If you’re Lancashire based, we’d be delighted to see you. Be sure to pop in to check out our handcrafted coffees, awesome breakfasts, incredible burgers, and so much more… ????
Oh, as an added bonus, our Lancaster store has some menu items that aren’t available in any other Bob & Berts store! Don’t tell anyone in Northern Ireland or Scotland though…
Business Live David Elliot –
Bob & Berts dips its toe in England with new Lancaster store and reveals plans for more.
The County Antrim coffee business resumes an ambitious expansion plan which has already seen it establish its brand in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
The move is the latest expansion for the company which was founded in the County Antrim town of Portstewart in 2013 by Colin McClean.
As well as 14 stores across Northern Ireland, it also has five in Scotland, including Falkirk, Kirkclady and Stirling and said it has plans to open more in the coming months.
“We’ve been shaking up the coffee shop industry everywhere with our simple commitment to serving customers proper coffee and great grub, and we’re delighted to launch Bob & Berts into England for the first time,” Colin McClean founder of Bob & Berts, said. “We carefully select each of our locations and we’re confident the people of Lancaster will love what we have to offer.”
He said the Covid-19 pandemic had hit the company hard but it was ready to resume growth plans.
