Costa Coffee, a coffee brand owned by Coca-Cola in India’s commercial beverage industry, recently announced the opening of its 150th store in Rajouri Garden, New Delhi.
In 2005, Costa Coffee made its entry into the Indian market by opening its very first café in Connaught Place, New Delhi, marking the start of its journey in India.
Over the last year, Costa Coffee partnered with Devyani International for a significant expansion effort in India, bringing about the establishment of approximately 60 new stores.
The brand’s continuous goal is to set up additional outlets in the key 8-10 cities across India, placing specific emphasis on specialized venues like airports, highways, and healthcare facilities.
India’s coffee industry is in the midst of an intriguing evolution, marked by an increasing emphasis on specialty coffee and premium offerings. This transformation is notably driven by urban millennials who have turned coffee shops into lively social hubs.
This transition is especially remarkable in a country that has traditionally been linked to tea culture.
The 150th Costa Coffee establishment serves as a testament to Costa Coffee’s commitment to providing artisanal coffee created from locally sourced ingredients.
“India is a key market for us globally and we are proud to commemorate the opening of our 150th store. This milestone truly highlights the overwhelming love and support we have received from coffee enthusiasts across India. Our aim is to extend our presence to every corner of the nation, and we remain committed to achieving this vision through our continuous expansion efforts, ensuring remarkable coffee experiences for all.” said, Vinay Nair, General Manager, India & Emerging Markets, Costa Coffee.
Costa Coffee presents a varied menu that showcases an array of unique coffee concoctions, including well-loved options like the Flat White, Classic Corto, Café Caramela, and others, all made with locally-sourced coffee beans.
