Coffee company Caffè Nero is to open three new outlets in Heathrow Airport’s new Terminal 2 building.
The firm will have two units in arrivals and one airside at the newest terminal, which is officially known as The Queen’s Terminal and which will open in June next year.
The biggest of the three cafes will be located in arrivals, and will feature a number of artisanal food products in a farmers’ market format, as well as a coffee roasting room. There will also be specifically designed areas to address different customers’ needs, including family-friendly private booths to a business hub catering for work in transit.
As part of Caffè Nero’s national music programme which supports up-and-coming artists, a stage will be a permanent feature of the café from which musicians will perform regularly for visitors.
In Terminal 2’s airside satellite, which will overlook the runway, passengers will be buy deli-style food, Italian Prosecco, Italian wines and Italian beers.
Muriel Zingraff-Shariff, Heathrow’s retail director said: “We set the bar high for retailers wishing to join Terminal 2. Caffè Nero has exceeded our expectations with innovative concepts that put the theatre of coffee and Italian culture at the heart of the experience for passengers.”
