Costa, voted the UK’s favorite coffee shop, is the UK’s largest coffee shop chain with over 1,968 coffee shops in the UK and more than 1,999 shops in 30 overseas markets. Founded in London by Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa in 1971, Costa’s performance goes from strength to strength. Alghanim Industries acquired Costa Kuwait in July 2013. Since then, Costa Coffee has been focusing on customer service, refurbishing existing stores as well as opening new ones around Kuwait, and refreshing and broadening its product range. Costa Coffee has been in Kuwait since 1998, and the brand currently operates in 34 locations, including outlets in Kuwait International Airport, The Avenues Mall, Al-Arjan Complex, Marina Crescent, and many others.
