Travel caterer SSP opens ‘UK’s busiest Starbucks’ at Heathrow Airport
SSP joined forces with Starbucks to open their 'busiest store in the UK' at Heathrow's Terminal five.

At 252sq ft, the store has 50 seats and nine coffee machines able to serve hundreds of customers every hour on the way to their gate. This store opening builds on SSP and Starbucks long-term partnership, which began 17 years ago.

Kari Daniels, chief executive of SSP UK & Ireland, said: “We know how important it is for our customers to be served promptly – especially when they have a flight to catch.

“The customer journey and efficiency are at the heart of our operations, and we’ve made sure that the design of this new store allows for quick and easy service for passengers on the go. We’ve also ensured the store is future proofed to manage growing customer numbers into the future.” 

Embracing the spirit of summer, passengers are invited to enjoy Starbucks summer menu, now available at Starbucks stores nationwide.

Fraser Brown, retail director at Heathrow, added: “We have created an innovative dining experience to suit each passenger’s journey through the airport. As a record 30 million passengers are set to travel through Heathrow this summer, this latest launch demonstrates the success of our retail strategy and Heathrow’s commitment to making every journey better.”
