Costa Coffee franchise expanding on Merseyside

Costa coffee has opened three new North West stores thanks partly due to a £1m funding package from Yorkshire Bank

Franchise owner Optimum Coffee Group operates the new outlets, in St Paul’s Square and Allerton areas of Liverpool plus Sale near Manchester.

The group currently runs 17 Costa stores across the Merseyside area and is looking to continue its growth strategy with further outlets scheduled to open in the next 12 months.

Yorkshire Bank and Optimum have jointly invested £1m in the latest three-store expansion. It will add more than 50 jobs to Optimum’s already impressive 190 headcount and increase the group’s turnover to £7m.
