First announced in 2015, this is the first time the coffee giant has worked with another food or drink brand. The trial launched in six London stores last summer, and Costa will now increase the healthy food offering to a total of 18 stores across the capital.
The further roll-out will see the Chop’d Jerk Chicken, Tuna Niçoise, Feta & Lentil, Parma Ham & Mozzarella and Falafel & Hummus salads appear across selected stores this week.
Variety on offer
Caroline Harris, UK and Ireland marketing director at Costa, said: “Customers responded positively to the partnership and love the new variety of salads on offer. Costa are committed to serving healthy food options and the Chop’d partnership demonstrates how our customers are at the heart of every decision we make.”
Eddie Holmes, managing director at Chop’d, said: “To think that our food will be tasted by a far wider audience really excites us, and helps us on our mission to offer the best salads, soups and stews the UK has ever tasted.”
The new Chop’d salad prices start from £5.50.
This week, Costa Fresco, the Costa London concept store, announced that it will serve a range of hot lunch dishes and desserts, baked instore.
