The new Costa Coffee shop and drive-thru on the former Papa’s Fish & Chip restaurant site on Market Lane, Scarborough, is set to open in August.

Rothstone Estates completed the site purchase after securing planning consent for the development in December last year. Fit-out of the Costa is well underway, with a planned opening next month.

Mark Rothery, Managing Director at Rothstone Estates said:

“The development will see the site being brought back into beneficial use following Papa’s decision to close the site to concentrate on its seafront restaurant. The scheme will also create 24 new local jobs.

“Work on-site continues at pace with an opening of the Costa next month and construction of the KFC beginning soon.”

The development also includes a KFC drive-thru which Rothstone recently handed over for construction to begin later in the summer.
