Kuwait, 23 April 2018: Costa Coffee, London's favourite coffee shop chain and part of Alghanim Industries Food and Beverage portfolio, celebrated the opening of its 50th store at the Kuwait International Airport on Monday, 23 April 2018. Following the opening of a store at Al Kout Mall earlier this month, the company continues its expansion in Kuwait to extend the Costa Coffee experience to more customers.
The opening ceremony was attended by CEO of Alghanim Industries, Omar K. Alghanim, and the Managing Director of Costa Coffee Middle East & Asia, Clair Preston Beer, as well as Alghanim Industries executives.
Commenting on the new opening, CEO of Alghanim Industries, Omar K. Alghanim said: "We are excited to open our 50th Costa Coffee store, bringing Costa's great products and first-class customer experience to Kuwait International Airport. This is an important milestone for Costa Kuwait, and we're really proud of our team for making it happen. We're happy that we serve the highest quality coffee in Kuwait, but what makes all the difference is the customer experience at all of our stores which has been internationally recognized by our partners in the United Kingdom."
He went on to say, "I'd like to thank our customers for continuously showing us their love for Costa Coffee and for making it the success it is today. We promise many future store openings in the days to come, and to always keep our customers at the heart of everything we do."
Managing Director of Costa Coffee Middle East & Asia, Clair Preston-Beer, said: "It has been a pleasure to watch Alghanim Industries grow Costa Coffee's presence in the Kuwaiti market, and to celebrate this milestone opening at Kuwait International Airport. This is just the beginning of a long-term expansion plan for our brand both in this market and worldwide."
Strategically located by the departure gates, the store is accessible to everyone and will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Spread across 62 square meters, the store features new urban décor with natural lighting.
In addition to its geographical expansion, Costa Coffee has expanded its delivery services to Carriage, the online ordering platform. Furthermore, Costa Coffee has also launched an exclusive healthy menu with new recipes and specialty items developed in collaboration with international chefs such as Chef Dean Brettschneider, global-based professional baker and patissier and Annabel Karmel, the UK's No.1 children's cookery author and best-selling international author.
Costa is the UK's No. 1 coffee shop, with over 2000 stores in the UK and over 1,000 across more than 30 countries, and it continues to grow at a rapid rate. The brand currently operates in 50 locations across Kuwait and has a number of outlets slated to open across the country over the next year.
Alghanim Industries acquired Costa Kuwait in July 2013. Since then, Costa Coffee has been focusing on customer service, refurbishing existing stores and opening new ones around Kuwait, and refreshing and broadening its product range.
