Starbucks has launched its ‘Evenings Programme’ in the UK, offering customers an expanded menu covering hot meals and snacks along with wines and beers after 4pm.

Its newly renovated Stansted Airport store, operated in partnership with SSP UK, is the first location to offer Starbucks Evenings, with plans to expand the programme to additional stores in the UK.

In US stores, Starbucks Evenings have proven popular and has rolled out to 30 locations in Seattle, Portland, Southern California, Chicago and Atlanta.

“We are delighted to launch the first Evenings Programme in the UK. Providing a welcoming coffeehouse environment has always been our focus and now we can offer something new for the evening too," said Ian Cranna, VP Marketing And Category for Starbucks EMEA. "I think our customers will love the new range of terrific food and carefully selected wines and beers which will provide even more choice and reasons to visit us later in the day.”

“Starbucks is a brand which is synonymous with great coffee and introducing this programme will tempt our coffee lovers to experience a new range of delicious foods and carefully selected alcoholic beverages in our newly renovated store," said Simon Smith, CEO, UK and Ireland for SSP UK.
