Cornwall's First Drive Through Starbucks Revealed

Cornwall's First Drive Through Starbucks Revealed

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 2:02pm 13th December 2019. (Updated at 2:05pm 13th December 2019)

In less than a week, Cornwall will have its first Starbucks drive through.

The new branch, which is nero to Hayle, will be the chain's most westerly outlet. But the extra distance should not mean its coffee costas customers any more.

It is due to open at 8am on 20th December - just in time for Christmas.

Work has been going on at the site of the old Little Chef for weeks, with around a dozen new jobs being created.

Pirate FM has been for a little snoop around.

There is still some building work to be completed at the site near the Hayle retail park

A number of delivery vans and building teams were in evidence, along with safety signs warning people to "keep out."

Inside, there is still some work to be done to make sure the branch is ready to go next Friday morning.

A spokesperson for Starbucks said: "We can confirm Cornwall's first Starbucks Drive Thru store will open in Hayle at 8am on Friday 20th December. 

"The new store will create between 10-15 new jobs, including the partners we have already hired from the local area. 

"Starbucks serves 99% ethically sourced coffee, accredited by Conservation International under the C.A.F.E. Practices programme, and we are excited to share the Starbucks tradition with the Cornwall community."
