The company opened its second shop in Birmingham in August this year, bringing the number of 200 Degrees branches nationwide into double figures.
The first 200 Degrees coffee shop opened in Nottingham's renowned Flying Horse Walk centre back in October 2014. After a successful couple of years, the company chose Birmingham's Colmore Row as the location for a new branch in 2016. It also included a barista school on the premises, making it an ideal launchpad for its second coffee shop in the city. The latest 200 Degrees is situated in Lower Temple Street in the heart of the city centre, just a stone's throw from New Street train station and the Grand Central complex.
A modern coffee shop needs to offer its customers a lot more than just hot drinks, important as those are. 200 Degrees has made sure it will have plenty of other tasty treats available when shoppers and commuters walk through the door. As well as hand-made sandwiches and baguettes, the shop will also sell a range of cakes and pastries, not to mention salads and soups - so there'll be something to tempt you whatever the weather. Those looking for gluten-free or vegan fare haven't been forgotten, either.
In just five years, 200 Degrees has taken its coffee shop count into double figures, with locations in cities as varied as Liverpool, Lincoln and Cardiff. The new Birmingham branch marks an exciting moment, though, as it's the first time the company has had two coffee shops in a single city outside its home base of Nottingham. Co-founder Tom Vincent said he was delighted by the support Birmingham coffee drinkers had given to the Colmore Row branch, making it an easy decision to expand further in the Second City.
