Whilst it once seemed a very “Parisian” thing to do, visiting coffee shops is increasingly becoming a big part of British culture. Indeed, it seems that we Brits are full of beans because two thirds of us have visited a coffee shop in the last three months. It is most popular among 16-24 year olds.
According to Mintel research, the coffee shop market was valued at £3.4 billion in 2016, compared to £2.2 billion in 2008. That’s a huge increase and perhaps more impressively, the market is brewing up for further success. Over the next five years, coffee shop sales are predicted to hit £4.3 billion, which is a massive 29% increase.
