Coffee shop creates 12 jobs in Lincoln

Speciality coffee roaster 200 Degrees has created 12 jobs in Lincoln after opening a coffee shop in Lincoln.

The new 90-seater coffee shop is on Sincil Street in the Cornhill Quarter heritage development.

It is the indie chain’s seventh venue since it was set-up in 2013 by Tim Vincent and Rob Darby in Nottingham. An eighth, in Manchester, is set to open later this year.

Vincent said: “A lot of hard work has gone into the opening and we’ve had our fair share of glitches and tense moments, we’re very excited to finally open our doors to the city and are honoured to become part of Lincoln’s thriving food and drink scene.

“We cherish coffee culture and hope to become an integral part of the Cornhill Quarter and its rich history by providing a comfortable and relaxing space where people can feel at home.

“With our roast house less than an hour away, we can supply fresh beans to our shop and other businesses, support Lincoln’s burgeoning coffee scene and work together with shops in the vicinity to solidify the Cornhill Quarter as a prime retail and leisure destination in Lincoln.

“We also hope to introduce our regular pop-up shops for small local producers to offer somewhere for creative people to showcase their talent and hopefully make a few quid.”
