Peoples Coffee hopes to open a chain of 30 easyCoffee outlets within the next 24-36 months – all offering great value and quality coffee from Italian specialist Lavazza. The company has a team with background in finance and hospitality.
“With coffee shop prices currently averaging £3 a cup, it is clear consumers have been taken for a ride. Although wholesale coffee prices have been falling recently consumers have seen no benefit. easyCoffee plans to make top quality beverages available to everyone at affordable prices.”
Sir Stelios said:
“I am delighted that we are going into business with another young, ambitious entrepreneur like Nathan, in order to bring London something very simple but yet so difficult to find: a great cup of Italian espresso coffee for just a pound.
“I think this industry is another example of allowing prices to carry on rising wihout good reason. Three pounds is a lot of money for a paper cup of espresso. The strength and name recognition of the “easy” brand will encourage consumers to try it for themselves when in Earls Court.”
