A new Costa Coffee drive-thru and store opens in Highbridge today (Thursday, December 2nd), creating 15 new jobs.

Construction of the new outlet on the Isleport Business Park in Bennett Road, next to the town’s Aldi store, has been completed and the first customers will be welcomed.

The new store opens on Mondays – Fridays from 6am-8pm, Saturdays from 7am-6pm, and Sundays from 8am to 6pm.

Mayor of Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge Town Council, Cllr Mike Facey, said: “It is fantastic to see business expanding in Highbridge and we welcome the opening of the new Costa Coffee Drive-Thru in the town today.”

A Costa Coffee spokesperson told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We’re delighted to confirm that a brand new Costa Coffee Drive-Thru store opens today on the Isleport Business Park in Highbridge.”

“The store has created 15 jobs for residents of the local area and comprises of both a Drive-Thru lane and a Costa Coffee store, allowing members of the local community to either grab a coffee on-the-go or sit-in and enjoy their favourite, handcrafted Costa coffee.”

We look forward to welcoming members of the local community to our new store.”

There will be outdoor seating, plus new parking spaces at the new outlet, as well as disabled parking spaces and bike stands.

It comes after plans for the site were granted by the district council last year. The land was first granted permission for the installation of a hot food takeaway and a cafe or restaurant in 2017.

Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge Town Council and Sedgemoor District Council gave their support to the plans.

Subway had planned to open a new outlet next to the new drive-thru but they told Burnham-On-Sea.com in September that their proposals had been withdrawn.
