SSP to run seven additional Starbucks coffee shops at UK airports

Travel food and beverage provider SSP has announced it will take over the operation of seven additional Starbucks coffee shops at airports in the UK.

There will be three new locations at Heathrow Airport (T3 airside, T5 satellite C airside and T5 airside), two at Glasgow Airport (airside and landside), one at Belfast International Airport (airside) and one at Manchester Airport (T1 airside).

The agreement will increase the total number of UK Starbucks operated by SSP to 31 and the seven new shops are expected to add £10 million in sales per year. The company has been operating the American coffee shops since 2008.

Kris Engskov, UK MD of Starbucks, said, “Starbucks has been working with SSP for many years in the UK and Europe and it's clear that their expertise in travel locations puts them in the best position to grow the Starbucks business in these airport stores. Customers will continue to receive the same fantastic customer service and exceptional coffee that they have become accustomed to when visiting any Starbucks store.”

Andrew Lynch, CEO of SSP, added, “As the leading operator of food and beverage in airports and rail stations across the globe, we have a wealth of experience in taking world-class brands to the travelling consumer. Working in partnership with a leading name such as Starbucks requires considerable trust, and upholding the reputation of such a brand is a considerable responsibility. This latest agreement is testament to our skill and expertise in this complex and demanding market and demonstrates Starbuck’s absolute trust in our abilities.”
