Costa Express and Shell UK have announced a long-term partnership to install Costa Express self-serve coffee machines in more than 550 Shell forecourts in the UK.
The partnership between Shell and Costa Express is closely aligned with the launch earlier this year of the oil company’s ’Deli 2 Go’ shop format, which the Costa Express offer will be an integral part of in many locations.
David Wood, marketing manager of Shell UK Retail, said: "We understand how important great food and coffee on the move is for customers today and bringing Costa Express to their daily commute is another big step towards establishing Shell as their preferred choice."
Scott Martin, managing director of Costa Express, said:"The partnership with Shell, with its high-profile, large network of forecourts, is a real endorsement of the Costa Express brand and our plans for expansion.
"Costa Express offers a quick, convenient way to grab a range of speciality coffee and hot chocolate products on the go and will complement Shell’s ’Deli 2 Go’ format."
