New SSP Starbucks opens at LGW


SSP has opened a new Starbucks store at Gatwick South Terminal.

The new coffee shop will also offer a menu that includes the newly-launched Breakfast Hot Boxes, including Super Scrambled Eggs, Tomato and Spinach or Spicy Chorizo, Poached Egg and Potato. There is also a selection of grab and go items.

Digital features include wireless charging zones and Gatwick’s free, fast Wi-Fi for customers on the go. There is hand-painted artwork on the timber-clad walls, and the shape of the walk-ways and curved surfaces reflect airport design features, such as luggage carousels and runways.

“We’re delighted to have been chosen to operate a fantastic new Starbucks coffee shop in the newly developed South terminal area at Gatwick, and to be building on our successful relationship with one of the UK’s most prestigious airports,” said Simon Smith, CEO of SSP UK.

Gatwick Airport offers flights to more destinations than any other UK airport and has increased its lead as the world’s most efficient single-runway airport – with 43 million passengers now travelling through its terminals each year.

To celebrate the opening, the store will be running specialist coffee tastings lead by Starbucks Coffee Masters throughout the opening period.
