Starbucks announces new drive-through in East Yorkshire

The Starbucks coffee chain has been signed up as the first arrival at a new development which will begin taking shape just outside Beverley in the coming months.

The venture, which will be known as Beverley Gateway, will breathe new life into the site of a former wallpaper and fabric pattern books manufacturer which was destroyed by fire in 2009.

A petrol filling station will also be built on the site at Killingwoldgraves Lane, and the company behind the scheme. Lovel Developments, expects to announce further arrivals in the coming weeks with the potential to create around 30 jobs.

The Starbucks outlet will be a drive-through operated by 23.5 Degrees. The chain’s first UK franchised business partner, 23.5 Degrees now operates more than 100 Starbucks stores nationwide including two outlets in York and others in Sheffield, Doncaster and Grimsby. The Beverly Gateway investment is the franchise’s first move into East Yorkshire.

Philip Lovel, managing director of Lovel Developments, said: “We will be starting work in the spring to put in the infrastructure including an access road, an estate road, drainage and lighting. The Starbucks building will be the first to be constructed and we hope to announce details soon of two more businesses at Beverley Gateway.

“Between them the sort off businesses we are looking at have the potential to create a significant number of jobs. The original estimate of 30 jobs was based on a filling station, coffee shop and some business units. The final figure will depend on the nature of the businesses we bring in and their staffing needs.

“It will be a high quality development which brings a derelict site back into use and is still in keeping with the wider rural area.”

Andrew Pickett, property director for 23.5 Degrees said: “We now have more than 100 Starbucks stores with ambitious plans for growth and a target of reaching 300 stores by 2028. We are excited about being the first businesses at Beverley Gateway and our use of modular design and build will enable us to be up and running soon after completion of the site works.”
