Store manager, Alanna Kincaid said: "I am so excited to be given the opportunity to open a brand new Starbucks in the area.

"Myself and my team cannot wait to welcome our new regulars and build relationships in our local community."

Operated by Starbucks licensee The Magic Bean Company, the store will create 20 new jobs for the local area.

The store is holding a Heroes Weekend on Saturday, August 1 and Sunday, August 2, giving a free Tall filter coffee to all NHS staff, care workers and police.

Customers are invited to visit the store, located in the Brooklands Retail Park right by the M4, to enjoy their favourite Starbucks beverage or try one of the new frozen iced teas available in apple & kiwi, tropical mango, and strawberry & lime.

The safety of Starbucks partners (employees) and customers remains the greatest priority, so service is currently only available via the Drive Thru lane.

General manager at The Magic Bean Company, Gayle Norman added: “We are excited to open our new store in Culverhouse Cross and look forward to welcoming customers to enjoy their favourite Starbucks food and beverages.”

The new store is located at Brooklands Retail Park, Culverhouse Cross, Cardiff, and is open from 6.30am until 11pm every day.
