Costa Coffee Sale Results in 100 Job Losses

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Around 100 jobs will be lost at the Whitbread head office after the selling of Costa Coffee to Coca-Cola for £3.9billion.  However a spokesperson for the group stated that they will be able to create about 1,700 jobs over the next year as they proceed to open over 40 hotels and restaurants all over the UK.

Whitbread’s new focus is now on its Premier Inn budget hotel and restaurant portfolio.

Consultations with the staff impacted by the job losses are in place and alternative positions are currently being found where possible.
