Nottingham-based 200 Degrees Coffee Roasters has announced that its 14th coffee shop will be open in York in late June.
The 82-seat shop will create 15 new full time and part time jobs in the heritage retail setting of 68 Low Petergate, just a short walk from many major tourist attractions including York Minster and The Shambles.
200 Degrees Director, Tom Vincent, says it’s been a long wait to open: “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.
“There will be lots to like including our hand roasted coffee and food that’s freshly made in our kitchen every day. We’ll be open early for our usual range of breakfasts and concentrating extra hard on maintaining the high quality of our takeaway service.”
200 Degrees was set up by Tom 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 company has already announced two further openings, including one in The Hyphen Building in Manchester, for this year.
The new Low Petergate coffee shop will open in late June. Opening times are 8am – 8pm Monday to Friday, 9am – 7pm on Saturdays and 9am – 5pm on Sundays (subject to Covid regulations)
