Budget coffee chain easyCoffee, part of easyGroup continues UK expansion project with its first outlet in Edinburgh set to open.
The chain, which offers £1 coffee, is backed by easyJet founder and tycoon Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, who launched easyCoffee last year.
The chain already has £1 coffee shops in cities across England, with the Capital site set to be its first in Scotland.
The shop, which opened opposite the Haymarket train station, is offering budget food as well as its discount hot drinks offering ham and cheese toasties for (approximately) £3.20.
The chain has already announced plans for 200 new stores in major high street locations as it seeks to take on market leaders like Costa Coffee, Pret A Manger and Starbucks.
Announcing the Edinburgh store, CEO Nathan Lowry said: “EasyCoffee has been popping up all over and we are finally heading to Scotland. We are just so chuffed to have found the right location with plenty of seating and free wifi, the right team and cannot wait to be a part of the neighbourhood.”
The shop will also serve a speciality drink made from the nation’s favourite soft beverage Iron Brew. The Blended Iced Irn Bru Freeze will be available at the Haymarket venue for a limited time only.
The chain is currently operating venues in Blackburn, Hastings, Leicester Square and Covent Garden.
