Coffee#1 Launches Click and Collect

Coffee#1, has announced the launch of Click and Collect across its store estate for the first time. The launch follows the recent successful roll out of delivery from Coffee#1 coffee houses with delivery partner Just Eat and means that as well as enjoying the welcoming atmosphere of the Coffee#1 coffee houses, customers needing a coffee on the go can now also order ahead and collect at their convenience.

The launch comes as Coffee#1 has opened a brand-new coffee house in the centre of Bristol as the business accelerates its opening program.  The store on the corner of Union Street and Broadmead is the 7th new opening since the pandemic, creating 12 new jobs in the area.  The store is split across two floors, and can accommodate up to 119 customers.

Founded in 2001 and now operating across Wales the Southwest, the South Coast and parts of the Midlands, the Central Bristol store is the 107th Coffee#1 store, making it the fourth largest coffee shop brand in the country.

The new coffee shop is situated prominently on in the centre of the city with a design which utilises the surrounding aspects. Customers visiting the Bristol store can relax with premium hand-crafted coffee, and an enticing menu which includes breakfast pastries, baps and paninis and an extensive range of cakes.

Coffee#1 Managing Director, Bruce Newman commented: “Adding Click and Collect to our operation is reflective of the evolving needs and habits of our customers. It’s a logical step for us to make and has been well received since launch.

I’m delighted with our new store in Bristol. Along with Cardiff, the city is very much the spiritual home of Coffee#1 and to be opening in the heart of Bristol is an exciting moment for the company. We will continue to add stores in locations where we have an existing brand awareness, however our ambition to expand the footprint of the brand with openings in new geographies remains on track.”

Coffee#1 recently confirmed strong trading with like for like sales hitting 117% of their 2019 levels as the business continued to successfully rebound from the pandemic
