UK bakery and coffee chain BB’s Coffee & Muffins has created 13 new vacancies as part of a new store opening at the McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet in Nottingham.

The 1,025sq ft store opened last week and includes an outdoor seating area.

The new shop has already employed seven members of staff, but the company is seeking a further six employees.

Paul Tyler, centre manager of East Midlands Designer Outlet, said: “We’re excited to welcome another great brand to our dining offering; we’re all big fans of the BB’s menu and with an outdoor seating area as well, it’s bound to be a popular spot within the centre.”

The opening is part of the chain’s plans to double the number of stores around the country over the next five years, with group chief executive of BB’s Andrew Moyes aiming for between “80-100 shops” during the time target.

BB’s is a bakery cafe group operating in the UK and Ireland. Each of its stores serve fresh sweet and savoury products, including 120 types of muffins, paninis and sandwiches, and freshly ground barista-made coffee.
