23.5 Degrees is Starbucks first UK franchised business partner.  We opened our first store in February 2013 and now have 74 stores (32 which are Drive Thru) across the UK with another 23 in the pipeline over the next year.

We have ambitious plans for growth.  We’re actively seeking both freehold and leasehold Drive Thru opportunities sitting on main arterial routes, close to major retail destinations or on large industrial estates. 


We will also consider Retail Park and ‘Drive To’ destinations, as well as High Street units in prominent high footfall locations.


We currently have the rights to develop in the following counties: Lincolnshire, Buckinghamshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk,

Hertfordshire, Essex, Dorset, East Anglia, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Somerset, Derbyshire, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Durham and Northumberland.


Managing Director Mark Hepburn has a track record of success in food service franchise businesses, including Burger King and KFC, specialising in rapidly growing businesses.
