Tom Vincent, co-founder and director at 200 Degrees, said: “This is the first out of town location for us in the UK and we chose the East Midlands Designer Outlet as it’s a prominent, retail destination.”

200 Degrees, which was set up by Tom and his business partner Rob Darby in 2012, has the chain of independent coffee shops as well as its roast house near Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The company has further plans to grow, with a new shop planned for Manchester later this year.
