About Costa Coffee India:
Costa Coffee entered India in September 2005 through an exclusive master franchisee tie-up with Devyani International Ltd (a Ravi Jaipuria promoted company and part of the 3000 crore RJ Corp) making it the first international coffee chain to start operations in India. Costa Coffee currently operates 90+ stores across India.
Since its launch, Costa Coffee has set new benchmarks in coffee retailing in the country. At Costa, each cup of coffee is treated as a work of art and served with a personalized touch. Over the last few years, Costa has created a distinct image for itself with its great coffee and food, friendly and efficient service and stylish and relaxing surroundings. Besides Coffee, Costa worldwide also lays heavy emphasis on food. A wide range of scrumptious sandwiches, Paninis, Tostatos and many kinds of deserts make it an exciting place to visit for a complete eating out experience.
Costa Coffee is UK’s largest Coffee chain and among the fastest growing globally. It was founded by Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa in 1971. Just 1% of the world’s production of coffee is good enough for Costa to choose from. Only the very best coffee available can go into creating the unique taste and aroma of Costa’s Mocha Italia blend.
Costa is expanding at a fast pace internationally – at present the company has over 3,987 stores and machines worldwide with plans to triple the footprint by 2015/2016. Costa is currently present in over 25 countries.
