Nottingham-based 200 Degrees Coffee Roasters has opened its newest coffee shop in York.

The 82-seat shop has created 15 new full-time and part-time jobs in 68 Low Petergate.

200 Degrees director, Tom Vincent, said: “This shop should have been open last April but we’re finally here and we hope our independent attitude and relaxed way of doing things will add to this fantastic area.

“We’re keen to join the local business community in York and support the thriving visitor economy in any way we can, possibly by treating some people to a coffee and one of our delicious vegan brownies.

“I’m also hoping to use my new joke about the shop being close to a shambles as many times as possible.

“There’s lots to like including our hand roasted coffee and food that’s freshly made in our kitchen every day.

“We’ll be open early for our usual range of breakfasts and concentrating extra hard on maintaining the high quality of our takeaway service.”

200 Degrees was set up by Vincent and his business partner Rob Darby in 2012 and now has 14 distinctively independent coffee shops as well as its Roast House near Trent Bridge, in Nottingham.

The York coffee shop launch follows the opening of 200 Degrees in Manchester and Cannock, which opened in May and June respectively.
