King’s Lynn will welcome another coffee shop to its line-up of retailers with the opening of BB’s Coffee and Muffins next month.
Creating 10 new jobs, the shop will open in Broad Street, in the Vancouver Quarter Shopping Centre, on Wednesday, August 12.
The firm has more than 50 coffee shops across the UK and Ireland, but the Lynn branch will be the first to open since it was taken over Brentwood Investments earlier this year.
And to celebrate the opening, BB’s will be giving away 100 free muffins every Tuesday for four weeks, starting on August 18.
Vancouver Quarter Discount Card holders will also be able to get two regular hot drinks for the price of one.
Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter Centre manager, said: “BB’s is a fantastic company known for its great products, design and customer interaction.
“We are delighted to be showcasing one of their newly-styled cafes, they will be a welcome addition to the town.”
As well as serving coffee and muffins, the shop will sell baguettes, breakfast rolls and bloomer sandwiches as well as a range of pastries and pasties.
Andrew Moyes, BB’s group CEO, said: “We pride ourselves in being different, and we are not afraid to show our personality. Our stores are full of unique, quirky touches – we don’t always try to fit in, but we always welcome everyone.
“All our muffins are made and baked on site that same day. We would never sell you a muffin that was made yesterday.”
BB’s Coffee and Muffins began in a bakery in Australia. When muffins started outselling every other item at ‘Bakers Bun’, the owners realised they’d hit on a recipe for success and began focusing solely on muffins.
Before long they were serving fresh coffee too, which led to the name of BB’s Coffee and Muffins.
Every BB’s store has a kitchen where muffins are freshly baked every morning, and its bakers have more than 200 muffin recipes to choose from.
Mr Moyes added: “In addition to the fabulous coffee and muffins, we have recently launched a brand new range of made-to-order summer drinks for you to chill out with, including iced coffee frappés, smoothies, refreshers and milkshakes.”
