Established in 2005, Goldex Investments Group Limited is the largest Costa Coffee franchise in the UK; currently trading 61 stores across Essex, Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Fast forward to 2016 and Goldex's dynamic New Store Opening Programme has seen 20 stores open in the past 2 years.
Costa Coffee has recently been voted the Nation’s favourite coffee shop for its sixth consecutive year, and Goldex strive to uphold their exceptional brand standards. This is demonstrated in their achievement portfolio which includes winning ‘Franchisee of the year’, ‘2016 Best Business for Leisure and Hospitality’, ‘Whitbread Good Together Award’, ‘2014 Best Business for Leisure and Hospitality’, ‘The Whitbread Ambassador Award’ and the prestigious ’Green Bean Award’.
Founded in London in 1971, an incredible thing happened. A cup of Costa coffee was poured for the first time. Its creators, the brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa, first sold their coffee to a handful of local caterers and then to some delicatessens. A few years later, they opened their very first coffee shop.
Today Costa is the largest and fastest growing coffee shop chain in the UK. So while a lot may have changed since that first cup was poured, the coffee certainly hasn't. Costa still slow-roast the beans in exactly the same way, and even in the same roasters, as Sergio did over 40 years ago. And as long as coffee lovers like it that way, they will continue to do so.
The Costa mission ‘to save the world from mediocre coffee’ is deeply rooted in the foundations of Goldex. We are passionate about delivering an unbeatable experience to our customers and in serving the highest quality coffee. All of our Baristas undergo extensive training to ensure you receive an exceptional cup every time. Costa is also the only UK coffee chain to source 100% of its beans from Rainforest Alliance certified farms.
To say thank you to our loyal customers, we offer a Coffee Club scheme where 5 points can be collected for every £1 spent in store. These points can be redeemed against any further Costa purchase from our excellent food and drink menu.--
