Tibshelf Services is getting one of these.

The £500,000 development at the busy services, located between junctions 28 and 29 of the motorway, will create ten jobs including barista, customer service and management roles.

The Drive Thru will aim to provide a ‘quick, convenient stop-off’ for the thousands of customers who pass through each day, so they can ‘enjoy a fresh coffee without leaving their car- as well as a full range of sandwiches, cakes and snacks’.

The site, operated by Roadchef, will now feature a drive-through Costa, as well as a dine-in Costa, McDonald’s, WHSmith store, Fone Bitz, SPAR and Fresh Food Café.
