Greene King signs Coffee Republic franchise deal
Coffee Republic has signed its first "Coffee Republic Served Here" franchise agreement with brewer and pub operator Greene King.
The deal will see Coffee Republic beverages served in 28 of Greene King's London pubs with the chain saying they hoped to "extend the partnership in the future".
Greene King is the first partner for the Coffee Republic Served Here concept, which sees the installation of a Coffee Republic branded outlet, in an existing business.
No financial terms behind the deal were revealed.
The deal echoes an agreement Mitchells & Butlers has with Whitbread's Costa Coffee that sees the coffee brand sold through outlets in pubs such as All Bar One.
