200 Degrees expansion heats up with West Bridgford plans

200 Degrees will transform the former Oliver Bonas unit

Nottingham coffee roaster and retailer 200 Degrees is set to open a new venue in West Bridgford.

The fast-expanding group will renovate the former Oliver Bonas unit just off Central Avenue, which will feature a roof terrace.

The news comes after 200 Degrees opened its 19th coffee shop in Chester last week. The West Bridgford outlet will be follow on from three successful launches in Nottingham, where the company was founded. Its roastery is based on Meadow Lane in the city.

200 Degrees managing director Stephen Fern is set to speak at our forthcoming Commercial Property Networking Lunch in Leicester on June 20 – to hear more about his plans for the expansion of the company, book your tickets here.

Rob Darby, CEO at 200 Degrees, said: “Nottingham is where it all began for 200 Degrees and the success of our three city shops – particularly Milton Street which opened last summer – has been phenomenal.  

“We’ve had our sights set on West Bridgford for a long time, as it’s where our co-founder Tom and I have made our home. It’s also the location of our Meadow Lane Roast House, which provides all the coffee we need for our 20-shop estate, eight barista schools, wholesale partners and online coffee customers. 

“West Bridgford is a thriving location, occupied by other popular brands and valued wholesale customers such as Birds Bakery and Forde’s, and it’s an exciting opportunity to join the buzzing food and drink scene there.

We’ve often been asked when we’d be setting up shop in West Bridgford, so we’re looking forward to serving some of our long-time 200 Degrees supporters a little closer to home.”
