Food to go with
record breaking coffee.

One of the best high street operators in coffee

A strong coffee offer is key for Greggs to maintain its dominant position in the food-to-go market. But the scene has changed dramatically since 1998, when we first started working together. This means continually evolving the offer to keep it relevant is key – so we created the Greggs House Blend and implemented a Total Coffee Solution that would evolve with the UK food to go market.

Exceptional coffee,
every time.

Ireland’s largest independent coffee operator

As Ireland’s largest independent coffee operator, with hundreds of outlets and self-serve locations country-wide and a loyal customer base, when Insomnia wanted to renew its coffee blend, it knew it would be a challenge. So, they enlisted the help of UCC Coffee.

Coffee sales doubled

A competitive, consistent and efficient coffee offer.

Simmons has established itself as the go-to bakery across Hertfordshire. But as the much-loved family baker experienced consistent growth, maintaining coffee standards to match the quality of its baked goods at site level started to become a challenge. Simmons turned to UCC Coffee to help implement a reliable and consistent coffee offer across its entire estate, without slowing down its operation.

Gardening is seasonal, so the family-run Pimbo garden centre wanted to give customers a reason to visit all year round. Rigby’s Café – complete with Coopers’ coffee and a Dalla Corte DR Pro – was the solution.

AN OFFER THAT COMPLIMENTS AND PROMOTES THE FOOD OFFER

Tesco’s previous offer was confusing – Costa wasn’t associated with tea or food, the proposition was not clear to customers. Tesco needed to find a way to create a seamless F&B offer targeted at consumer needs, driven by a clear strategy that ensured the right environment for consumers to linger.

Reinvent the coffee and chocolate combination.

Bespoke blend & range, reinventing the classic partnership

Luxury chocolatier and cocoa grower Hotel Chocolat is a leading British chocolate brand committed to the best possible taste profile for everything it makes, which is why when it decided to combine chocolate with coffee it turned to the experts at UCC Coffee to help it find the perfect pairing.

Delivering the
very best.

Combining artisanal quality & consistency

Caffeine & Co – a small chain of independent artisan coffee shops in Manchester – prides itself on providing the highest possible quality. And that means it needs top quality equipment.

Coffee is the backbone
of their business

Range of sites with unique needs

Coffee is central to The Coastal Kitchen Family’s venues; it plays a huge role in their business as a central driver for footfall and sales. That’s why a coffee solution which can deliver consistent, quality coffee in a way that works in their business was essential.

IRELAND’S LARGEST COFFEE BRAND

Musgrave, Ireland’s leading food retail and wholesale company that supply private label coffee under its Centra and SuperValu brands, identified that the out-of-home coffee offering in Ireland was convoluted, inconsistent, inaccessible, and not meeting consumer expectations.

Coffee that’s
causing a stir

A show-stopping coffee offer

Levy Restaurants needed to create a show stopping café in the new wing of London’s iconic Somerset House – so they turned to The Total Coffee Solution.

Perfectly paired
coffee offer

Competitive, compelling and distinctive coffee.

Krispy Kreme, already the king of doughnuts, wanted a competitive coffee offer that matched its food offer and cemented its presence on the high-street.

Hit every financial target for 2021

Looking to premiumize their coffee offering, we worked with The Kia Oval in partnership with The Levy Restaurants to deliver a great quality product for their retail and foodservice sides of the business, to grow their coffee business faster with a reliable supplier they can trust.
