Bruno and Sergio Costa founded a coffee roastery in Lambeth, London, in 1971, supplying local caterers. Costa branched out to retailing coffee in 1978, when its first store opened in Vauxhall Bridge Road, London. In 1995, the business was acquired by Whitbread, becoming a wholly owned subsidiary. In 2009, Costa celebrated the opening of its 1,000th store – in Cardiff. In December 2009, Costa Coffee agreed to acquire Coffee Heaven for £36 million, adding 79 stores in central and eastern Europe. By the end of 2010, the company had overtaken Starbucks in the UK, reaching a 46.5% market share. Number of employees
More than 1,700 people applied for eight jobs at a new coffee shop, in an indication of how tough the jobs market remains. A spokeswoman for Costa said the firm was shocked at the response for the three full-time and five part-time posts at the shop, which is due to open on Woodborough Road on Friday. She said applicants for the posts, with wages between £6.10 and £10 an hour, ranged from new graduates to former managers who were clearly overqualified for the positions.
