Haskins Garden Centres has been announced as Costa’s National Partner of the Year out of more than 80 partners across the UK.

This is the first time that Haskins has won this accolade with Costa and was one of four shortlisted partners that were celebrated during an awards evening held at Proud Embankment in London last month.

Costa has more than 150 partnerships across the UK and Ireland, with more than 80 partners operating five or more sites, similar to Haskins Garden Centres.

Ben Harrison, operations director of Haskins Garden Centres, comments: “Our teams have worked incredibly hard to recover from the events we’ve all faced over the last two years and I’m incredibly proud of them for consistently delivering great quality coffee day in, day out in the huge volumes we work through. Our fantastic partnership with Costa Coffee has really helped drive footfall into our restaurants during these times and it means a lot to be recognised in this way.”

The annual national awards are held to recognise and praise Costa’s partners for their committed partnership and excellent customer service. Costa Coffee is served in all five Haskins Garden Centre restaurants where baristas are trained to meet Costa’s quality and taste standards.

Marian Fagbemiro, corporate partnerships & FMCG director, Costa UK & Ireland says, “We were delighted to award Costa Coffee’s Partner of the Year 2021 to Haskins Garden Centre. As a long-standing partner, Haskins has been serving Costa Coffee for over 13 years and despite a challenging 18 months have demonstrated tremendous resilience, emerging stronger from the pandemic with the recent opening of Forest Lodge and Birdworld in Farnham.

“The team have kept the safety of their team members and customers at the forefront of all decision making, remaining committed to safely serving their local community and delivering exceptional customer service and, of course, serving deliciously crafted Costa coffees. Congratulations to everyone involved.”
