Costa Coffee set to open in The Paddock, Handforth

The fastest growing coffee shop in the UK will open its doors in the Paddock, Handforth on July 23rd providing local people with ‘the nation’s favourite’ coffee experience for the first time.

For the family-owned franchise behind the Costa Coffee brand in the North West  – Sim Trava –  and commercial landlords Orbit Developments, the opening will be the happy culmination of 18 months discussion and planning to find the right size and location for a Costa Coffee in the village.

It will be the 37th Costa Coffee outlet for Sim Trava and founder Simon Vardy is delighted to be coming into Handforth with the company’s unique combination of quality coffee and personal service.

He said: “We have been waiting for the right place here for some time and are delighted to be opening in just a few weeks in this popular village centre.  We hope the Costa Coffee will add something very positive to the current Paddock shopping experience and encourage more local people to come and spend time with us and in other shops in the centre.”

Costa Coffees are often to be found in village centres, complementing other businesses and driving more footfall in general.  The 1500 sq ft double-fronted location in Handforth will join a local network run by Sim Trava, including Holmes Chapel and Cheadle, where its openings have had a beneficial impact.

A store manager has already been appointed to lead the new team, but Simon is looking for more passionate local people to join the team.

He added: “We pride ourselves on delivering a high level of personal commitment and service in every Costa to give our customers the best of both worlds – all the benefits of a well-known coffee brand, but provided by local people who really care about it.  And the right people can build a fantastic career with us – they become part of our family.”

James Nicholson, Leasing Assistant at Orbit Developments, commented: “We wish Simon and the team every success at the Paddock. It has taken time to find exactly the right location in Handforth to meet the needs of a busy and successful coffee house and we are very glad to have got there and be welcoming them into our community.”

Anyone interested in finding out more about the job opportunities at Costa Coffee, Handforth should email hello@simtrava.co.uk.
