We are excited to have opened a new shop in Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal, marking our first airport site in London, and eighth airport location in the UK.
This is a major milestone in our growth strategy, as we look to expand beyond the high street to key transport hubs across the UK.
As we continue to grow, we are always keen to ensure we can continue to meet our customers’ needs and adapt to their lifestyles. Beyond city centres, we are looking to cater our offering to travellers and commuters, so that we can be accessible wherever, whenever and however our customers need us.
Building on our recent openings in other key transport hubs across the UK, such as Glasgow International Airport, Shepherds Bush Tube Station and Canary Wharf Station in London, the new Gatwick shop marks a significant step towards our goal of opening 150 net new shops in 2023, which we are well on track for.
The shop will be open 24 hours and sell our full menu, ranging from salads, breakfast deals, freshly-made sandwiches, bakes and sweet treats to hot food options such as potato wedges and chicken goujons.
To reflect this expanded offer and to cater for predicted high demand in the airport, the shop will be 1600 square feet in size. Located at the South Arrivals, the shop will greet customers as they walk through the doors, offering a warm welcome home.
“Our versatile shop formats, new digital channels and relationships with our franchise and wholesale partners have enabled us to adapt our offering and expand in many new locations such as supermarkets, shopping centres and key transport hubs, like the Gatwick Airport. This new shop is also indicative of the next generation of shop refits and will feature state-of-the-art design to ensure our customers have a brilliant experience when they visit us.”
