COFFEE GIANT: Starbucks confirmed as new drive-thru coffee shop

Coffee giant Starbucks has been confirmed as the chain which is set to take on a new drive-thru coffee shop being opened in Wrexham.

Building work is well underway on the branch within the Asda car park in the town centre, with the development expected to create up to 30 jobs.

Euro Garages was previously granted permission for the 215 square metre outlet off Holt Road.

However, details of the firm which is set to run it have been kept under wraps until now.

It follows an application being submitted for signs to advertise the Starbucks branch.

Documents put forward to Wrexham Council show the company wants to put up a total of 18 signs, including several of its famous logo, which features a smiling mermaid with wavy hair and a crown.

There are also a number of signs highlighting the coffee shop’s drive-thru service.

The outlet will become the first Starbucks drive-thru opened in Wrexham once completed, with rivals Costa having two drive-ins in the area.

Plans for the branch were approved last year by councillors, who said it would help the town’s economy in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking at a planning committee meeting last September, Ruabon councillor Dana Davies said: “I think that we are in a completely different environment now with Covid and supporting local businesses through less physical contact is obviously something that we need to be considering.”

The latest proposals will be considered by the local authority at a later date.
