200 Degrees coffee roasters has announced that the opening of its York store will be in late June 2021.
The new shop, which can seat 82 people, will create 15 new full time and part time jobs in the retail setting of 68 Low Petergate, a short walk from many major tourist attractions including York Minster and The Shambles.
The business was set up by director Tom Vincent and his business partner Rob Darby in 2012 and has 11 “distinctively independent” coffee shops as well as its roast house near Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
The new opening marks the fourteenth one for the business, which has already announced two further openings, including one in The Hyphen Building in Manchester, for this year.
Vincent said: “This shop should have been open last April but we’re finally here and we hope our independent attitude and relaxed way of doing things will add to this fantastic area as everything returns to normality, whatever that is.
“We’re keen to join the local business community in York and support the thriving visitor economy in any way we can, possibly by treating some people to a coffee and one of our delicious vegan brownies. I’m also hoping to use my new joke about the shop being close to a shambles as many times as possible.”
