Leading coffee shop chains in Europe in 2018, based on number of units

Leading coffee shop chains in Europe 2018, by number of units Costa Coffee ranked as the leading coffee shop chain in Europe in 2018. The British brand of coffee store had 2,923 units open across Europe as of the end of 2018. Starbucks and McCafé also operated over two thousand establishments.
The top coffee shop players in Europe

With Costa, Starbucks and McCafé are the three main players on the European coffeehouse market, however the presence of each brand widely varies by country. For instance, Costa’s leading market is by far the United Kingdom (UK), where the vast majority of stores are based. Most Starbucks stores in Europe are also in the UK. McCafe’s presence in Europe is spread across the mainland, with their biggest market in Germany. It should be noted that the brand has no stand-alone stores in the UK.

Where are the main coffeehouse markets in Europe?

Although there are many coffee loving nations within Europe, the coffeehouse culture varies by country. While the UK is a big market for coffee-focused shops that follow a Starbucks-style format, cafés are the primary locations for coffee lovers in Italy, Portugal and Turkey. The number of cafés and coffee shops in such European countries therefore varies, with Italy in the lead overall.
