200 Degrees to create more East Midlands jobs with new venue

Some 12 jobs have been created ahead of East Midlands-based coffee roaster 200 Degrees opening the doors to its new Derby coffee shop in Derbion shopping centre, this Saturday (November 19).

Sat next to Boots on the ground floor of Derbion, the new coffee shop can seat more than 60 people.

The new Derby coffee shop is the roaster’s 18th across England and Wales and is the seventh in the East Midlands; with shops in Lincoln, Leicester, Nottingham and at McArthur Glen East Midlands Designer Outlet.

The opening follows a successful and busy year for 200 Degrees, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary last month (October) and recently launched its new recyclable packaging and introduced recyclable coffee pods.

Rob Darby, CEO at 200 Degrees, said: “We’re thrilled about the opening of our new shop in Derby. We’ve been wanting to set up shop here for some time, being East Midlands-based, and Derbion is the perfect spot.

“Looking back at where the 200 Degrees journey started, I feel very proud of what we’ve achieved together and feel grateful for our loyal customers.

“Each new shop opening feels like such a huge win, and I’m delighted with the team’s efforts and hard work. We look forward to serving our coffee to the Derby community!”leader
