Popular UK coffee chain Bob and Berts is making its way to Preston.


Set to open during the first half of November, the store will be located in a vacant spot in Fishergate across from Primark, marking a £400,000 investment in the city.

The chain was first founded in Portstewart, Northern Ireland, in 2000 and has since expanded with 14 stores in Northern Ireland and five stores in Scotland. In June the first Bob and Berts opened in England, in Lancaster.

Preston is set to be the third store in England for the chain.

The opening has already resulted in the creation of 25 full and part-time jobs in management, barista, chef, and general hospitality positions.

Bob and Berts specialises in providing customers with high quality coffee, and also offers a wide range of food choices.

Jordan Graham from Bob and Berts told Blog Preston: “Preston is a very up and coming, vibrant city with a lively high street that has a great energy on it unlike other high streets.

“It also has a major student population, to which our stores can cater for with our convenience with food and drink, along with extra benefits such as comfortable, open space, free wifi and plugs for students needing a place to study.

“We make it no secret that we are chasing stores like Starbucks and Costa, but where you would get a refrigerated, hours old sandwich in a cardboard box, you get fresh, made to order restaurant quality food made in nine minutes.”

Bob and Berts food offering includes Northern Irish classics such as a ‘spud stack’, which is three slices of potato bread, sausage, bacon and egg – making this spot interesting for anyone with an Irish background, or anyone with an interest in trying something different.

Supporting the community is something that Bob and Berts has an active engagement in across all of their stores, as they raise money for children’s hospices in Northern Ireland and Scotland. England is no different with every store supporting local charities in its respective area.

They also are involved with at least one football youth academy per store.

Further plans for the chain’s expansion into England are underway with plans to open more stores in the south next.
