A new drive-thru Starbucks is coming to Hull
By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 3 Jan 2018
A new Starbucks drive-thru creating 25 new jobs is set to open in Clough Road.
The store will form part of a wider development scheme at the derelict former Yorkshire Water site close to Stoneferry Bridge.
As well as the drive-thru, five trade sales units will also be constructed at the site. The trade units are expected to create another 50 full and part-time jobs.
The derelict former Yorkshire Water site in Clough Road will soon be re-developed with a new Starbucks drive-thru and five trade units.
The Starbucks unit will be operated as a franchise by catering firm 23.5 Degrees.
The company currently runs 42 Starbucks across the country with another 35 outlets currently approved or in the planning pipeline.

According to the 23.5 Degrees website, the fit-out cost of the of the Clough Road drive-thru is expected be in the region of £350,000.
A design and access statement which formed part of the planning application for the scheme said: "This development needs Starbucks as a tenant to enable funding for the trade units."
Previously approved plans for trade-only units and a gym at the same site never got further than the drawing board.
Up to 75 new jobs could be created in the new development in Clough Road
The drive-thru will follow a new Starbucks outlet due to open in Hull's Paragon Station later this month.
The coffee chain is moving into one of four new glazed units on the station concourse which have replaced the old travel centre.
Granting planning approval for the Clough Road development, Hull city councillors agreed a number of conditions on trading hours at the site in response to concerns about the impact on nearby residents living in Reservoir Road.
Both Hull North MP Diana Johnson and Councillor Dave McCobb, who represents the area, had objected to the application by developers Burney Estates Ltd, citing the potential impact on residents.
As part of the approval, Starbucks will be allowed to trade between 6am and 11pm.
However, the trade units will only be allowed to open to customers between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday, and 8am until 1pm on Saturdays.
The trade units will not be allowed to open at all on Sundays.
