distinctive to 200 Degrees with a coffee bar, fireplace snug area and a large area of outdoor seating. It is the company’s 11th coffee


shop to open since 2014 and coffee enthusiasts may also purchase several freshly roasted coffee blends, coffee gift boxes, brewing recipes, V60’s and AeroPress from the shop, with highly trained baristas on hand to advise on products and demonstrate coffee making methods. Tom Vincent, Co-founder and


Director at 200 Degrees, said: “This is the first out of town location for us in the UK and we chose the East Midlands Designer Outlet as it’s a prominent, retail destination. We also hope to satisfy our batistas’ endless desire for Converse, the shop is a few doors away from us.”


The new outlet is the company’s 11th coffee shop


feature – creating the ability to review operations and assess driver activity – while an extra sensor has been added to the blind spot of vehicles. The company also became the


first in the specialist vehicle industry to set up an approved


training centre. The move ensures all drivers are qualified for sweeping, cleaning and clearing and compliments its policy for contracting works that demands mandatory training leading to the Highways England Safety Passport and a CSCS card.


A technical team was meanwhile


established to ensure vehicles remain at the forefront of the industry. Despite significantly expanding


its fleet since 2017/18, the number of incidents has dropped from 267 to 170.
