Barista Bar has struck a £2.5m ($3m) deal with CJ Lang & Son to expand its presence across Spar convenience store outlets in Scotland, World Coffee Portal has reported.

CJ Lang & Son owns the SPAR convenience store chain in Scotland and presently operates more than 300 SPAR stores across Scotland.

As per the terms of the agreement, Barista Bar will install its self-serve coffee machines at 104 SPAR stores in Scotland.

It will also be deployed at independent retailers’ locations. 

Henderson Foodservice, which started Barista Bar in 2015, will now have 730 units across the UK with this new rollout.

Henderson Foodservice commercial and development director Mark Stewart-Maunder was quoted by World Coffee Portal as saying: “Two years ago, our foodservice company invested over £6m ($7.3m) into Barista Bar to upgrade the brand and machinery to produce a stand-out product that has had a hugely positive impact on our retailers’ sales and footfall.
