Coffee lovers are in for a treat as Teesside prepares to welcome a new Starbucks drive-thru. 

Construction works are currently underway at Teesside Industrial Estate, in Thornaby, for the popular chain’s latest outlet in the region. 

The news comes just days after Starbucks launched its latest venture in Faverdale, Darlington, and weeks after opening at Preston Farm in Stockton on April 26. 

The American coffee giant, which first launched in the UK in 1998, announced ambitious plans last year to open 100 new stores across the country.

It has several outlets across the North East now including on Durham Road and Portrack Lane in Stockton, and Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough. 

The latest location follows a £5m investment by industrial estate owner UK Land Estates into the development of retail and industrial units at the park over the past 12 months.

The investment has already seen Hydrasun and Park Electrical invest in the site

The site is currently home to a range of outlets including Greggs, Subway, Domino’s, Screwfix, and popular pub Anson Farm. 

It also boasts a range of other facilities including play areas - such as Crazy Corner and Adventure Play Centre and The Play Factory - and One Gym and Hunters Fitness Hub. 

Tim Witty, development director at UK Land Estates, said: “We are delighted to welcome Starbucks to Teesside Estate.

“One of the things we take most pride in when developing our business parks is ensuring they have all of the amenities that businesses require, be it food and drink vendors, gyms and in some cases, even hotels.

“We also strive to do everything we can to ensure our developments really add value to the communities that house them, both economically and socially, and in Starbucks we have a partner who will help us deliver just that for Thornaby.

“It will create jobs for local people while also giving others and businesses a new destination to visit, it’ll be great for the area.”
