New Starbucks to offer menu designed for Gatwick's passengers

Gatwick has gone with the tried and trusted and opened a new Starbucks in its South Terminal.

The new store will serve the full range of Starbucks coffees and offer a menu "designed to meet the needs of travelling customers".

According to F&B concessionaire SSP UK, the Gatwick South Terminal Starbucks store has been designed to reflect the needs of its customers, and the menu includes a wide range of items to grab and go as well as selections for those who have more time to linger.

There are also digital features including wireless charging zones and Gatwick’s free, fast Wi-Fi for customers on the go.

There is hand-painted artwork on the timber-clad walls, and the shape of the walk-ways and curved surfaces reflect airport design features, such as luggage carousels and runways.
Guy Stephenson, Gatwick’s chief commercial officer said: “The opening of this new Starbucks store at Gatwick perfectly complements our existing line up of shops and restaurants. 

"Our passengers want fast and reliable service from brands they trust as they travel across the globe so Starbucks coffee, recognised the world over, will be very well received.

"This opening further adds to the wealth of food and drink choices at Gatwick - with passengers able to have take-away options from all restaurants or receive their order within 15 minutes when dining in.”

Michael Haley, director channel licensing, Starbucks Europe, Middle East and Africa said: “We are thrilled to open our new store at Gatwick South Terminal with SSP UK. It is designed with the travelling customer in mind, with innovative wireless charging, bringing our world class coffee, with added convenience.”

To celebrate the opening, the store will be running specialist coffee tastings lead by Starbucks Coffee Masters throughout the opening period.
