Work begins on Starbucks drive-thru at Grimsby business park

Construction has begun on a Starbucks drive-thru café at Europarc, the business location on the south bank of the Humber.

The coffee house will serve the growing community of workers and visitors to developer Wykeland Group’s Europarc business park in Grimsby.

The 1,800 sq ft, single storey drive-thru and eat-in café will have additional external seating and 22 car parking spaces, including four electric vehicle charging bays.

Construction work has now begun, with the facility expected to open its doors this summer.

Having successfully taken the Starbucks facility through the planning process, securing approval from North East Lincolnshire Council, Wykeland has sold the site to property and development company Burney Group, which will deliver and let the café to Starbucks franchise K Beverage.

Wykeland Development Director Jonathan Stubbs said: “The arrival of Starbucks will add to the appeal of Europarc and provide a high quality new facility for employees and visitors to enjoy.

“Europarc is firmly established as the location of choice on the south bank of the Humber for leading businesses and we continue to see strong demand from companies keen to invest on site.

“Having worked closely with Burney Group in securing planning approval, we’re delighted to have concluded a deal to sell the land, which enables the new Starbucks drive-thru café to be taken forward and delivered.

“Burney Group has a proven track record of delivering high-quality roadside retail developments of this kind across the UK, including a number of other Starbucks drive-thrus. They share our commitment to job creation and economic development and it’s been a pleasure to work with them on this project.”

Developed and owned by Wykeland, Europarc has more than 800,000 sq ft of business space, with over 2,500 people employed on site.

Blue chip occupiers include supermarket giant Morrisons, Humber Seafood Institute, Ultimate Packaging, the Hain Daniels Group and 2 Sisters Food Group.
