Bewiched opens drive-thru site

The chain already secured another drive-thru location that will open next year in the Wellingborough area.

Independent regional coffee chain Bewiched announced the launch of a drive-thru location.

Situated in Moulton Park, Northampton, the unit has 55 internal covers and features integrated headphone system and timing loops.

“We have conducted extensive research on the drive thru coffee market, locally, nationally & internationally. The reality is that a customers’ perception of time, waiting in a car, versus waiting in a store is entirely different. We must therefore ensure that the drive thru is quick, with outstanding service [and] product levels,” Bewitched operations manager Richard Wagg said.

Bewiched founder and managing director Matt Fountain confirmed they already secured another drive-thru site that will open next year in the Wellingborough area and are in negotiations on two more.

“To get a new build drive thru open, we have had to build a business which holds up to financial scrutiny from developers, who in turn often have to raise funds to finance the building project. So I am very proud that our business has the strength of covenant to pass those tests,” he said.
