Covered in this report
This report covers branded chains and independents serving coffee beverages as core products. They are based on the European and North American coffee shop models, typified by Starbucks, Costa Coffee, Caffè Nero and Coffee Republic, offering a wide variety of coffee drinks. Other items are usually on sale, such as pastries, tea and coffee beans. Some venues may also serve breakfast and lunch as well, such as sandwiches and hot boxes.
Coffee shops include venues such as individual stores, kiosks and concessions. These may operate in a number of locations – MSAs (motorway service areas), health clubs and hospitals, for example, as well as standalone outlets. However, they must be independent of the facility they are located in.
This report does not include other establishments that sell coffee, such as restaurants, tea shops or traditional cafés, except as a means of comparison. Nor does it include sandwich shops, such as Pret a Manger or Greggs, although these are mentioned in the consumer research for comparative purposes.
Key points included:
- Can an own-brand coffee shop model work in the grocery channel?
- Tailored offerings will be key to survival in challenging retail conditions.
- Opportunities for coffee shops to premiumise tea.

Written by Trish Caddy, a leading analyst in the Foodservice sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
With four in five coffee drinkers wanting to customise their drink, shops that offer create-your-own options will thrive in today’s challenging high street conditions. But it’s not just customisation that’s important. Whether it’s becoming destinations for work, socialising and convenience, focusing on sustainable schemes or meeting health goals, coffee shops also need to be about supporting causes and togetherness.
