    Is there really a demand for a 24 hour drive through coffee shop in Plas Coch?

    I’m surprised at the location as it is effectively at the end of a No Through Road that on Saturday when there is football will mean buying a hot coffee that will be cold by the time you drive to the small roundabout by the Plas Coch pub. Christmas and Easter holidays are utter chaos.

    That seems to be a layperson reason why it seems illogical yet companies like Costa and other mainstream national brands spend large amounts of money on-site surveys, customer flow projects and financial modelling that has a single purpose – to make a Profit.

    Surely we should applaud any company that wants to invest in Wrexham- don’t forget it will be just around the corner from the new hotel apartments due to be built by the las Coch pub.

    Agree about location , no passing trade and no through road!

    Make it a drive through pie & chip shop and you’re on to a winner

    Indeed, just what we need! I mean, we haven’t got enough Costa Coffee/Express shops in town have we?
    Let’s have ANOTHER one but site it in a dead end.
    Brilliant idea!

    “We” the Wrexhamcom thread contributors may think this is a daft idea but Costa will have done their sums and if they stacked up to show a profit then a decision is made. They don’t come up with sites on a whim. They will have looked at close proximity to Glyndwr and student numbers, parents dropping children off at Plas Coch, etc.

    Expect objections to this planning application from Frankie n Bennies (serves coffee), Sainsburys (serves coffee), Plas Coch (serves coffee) and Glyndwr University (serves coffee).

    Objections on the grounds that another business is selling the same product do not carry any weight at a Planning Meeting. An objection based on commercial competition is not a valid reason for permission nor to be given.
