YOU, ME & COFFEE – FRIDAYS TO ADD NEW ILLY COFFEE MENU AT ALL UK RESTAURANTS


Fridays, part of newly listed Hostmore plc, has announced a brand new partnership with illy coffee which will see a fantastic range of 12 new luxurious Italian coffees at every Fridays UK location, following a trial at selected restaurants. 

Alongside the classics – Espresso, Americano, Latte, Cappuccino, and Hot Chocolate – will be a desirable range of hot specials including a Café Viennese, Cappuccino Viennese, Irish Coffee and Black Forest Hot Chocolate.

Guaranteed to bring that Fridays Feeling is an incredible Espresso Martini range which consists of the Vanilla Espresso Martini, Salted Caramel Espresso Martini, Chocolate Orange Espresso Martini and an Almond Espresso Martini. 

After a swift rollout in the first part of 2022, the entire range will be available at every Fridays restaurant in the UK. Furthermore, the new additions to the menu will be available all day, every day meaning guests can enjoy them during a break from a shopping trip, before a cinema date or at the end of a meal enjoying their favourite Fridays dishes. Takeaway and delivery coffee services will also be available at most locations.

The move delivers another leap forward for Fridays’ new food and drinks menus which are focussed on relevance, simplicity and quality and re-establishes the brand’s ethos of doing all that it can for its guests.

Alyson Scott, Fridays Procurement and Supply Chain Director, said: “illy are the connoisseurs of coffee and we are delighted to be adding this fantastic premium range of coffees and Espresso Martinis to our new and improved drinks menu.

“Available all day and your way, the range is perfect for those that need a pick me up during the day or those that need the perfect tipple to finish off their meal at Fridays. We can’t wait for our guests to try them!”

Julian Hollis, National Accounts Manager at illy, added: “We are really excited to be teaming up with Fridays to help create quality all day coffee occasions. Having recently become the first Italian coffee brand to secure a BCorp credential, it is these larger partnerships in the UK that will allow us to spread the word of our ethical supply chain.

“We are so excited to supply Fridays’ hot drinks but also assist in offering ideas and guidance to help create some amazing coffee based cocktails; the Salted Caramel Espresso Martini is a personal favourite!”
