Costa Coffee, a London-born coffee giant, will open a “prominent” space in the forthcoming Lee + White food hall, according to an announcement.
Costa Coffee will open a full-service cafe at the project in West End, taking more than 1,600 square feet.
“We will bringing Costa Signature Roasts, now paired with fresh bakery and chef-driven food, along with seasonal barista favorites. Expect a new store experience, celebrating Costa’s heritage and building the brand together with guests, local creators and entrepreneurs,” a company spokesperson shared in a statement to What Now Atlanta.
Founded in London in 1971, Costa has nearly 4,000 stores globally, including about 2,500 outlets in the United Kingdom. It was acquired by The Coca-Cola Co. in 2019.
In Atlanta, Costa Coffee has partnered with Kaldi’s Coffee, a family-owned coffee business based in St. Louis, to operate the local stores, said the spokesperson. That includes the new Lee + White location, as well as the Coda building location in Midtown’s Tech Square and the Goizueta Business School location at Emory University, both of which are currently open.
The Lee + White food hall is expected to open in early 2023. It will feature 19 vendors, a central bar and frontage along the Atlanta BeltLine.
Other newly announced tenants include Sweet Red Peach bakery, Crème de la Crepe and Cielito Lindo taqueria. Vendors that were previously announced include: Gekko Hibachi & Sushi, Honeysuckle Gelato, Lake & Oak BBQ, Mochinut, The Original Hot Dog Factory and Pastaholics.
