Co-op unveils plans for new university franchise store

Co-op is to see a new university franchise store open at Keele University this September.

Managed and run by Keele University Students’ Union, the shop will stock a range of Co-op own brand products as well as Fairtrade, free-from and vegan options.

Sarah Ellis, chief executive of Keele University Students’ Union, said: “This is fantastic news for the students and greater community at Keele. It will offer a diverse range of products with students benefiting from student discount and anyone else able to use the Co-op membership discount. It has been a pleasure to work with Co-op on the venture thus far and I look forward to the store developing and opening over the coming months.”

Keele will be the seventh franchise store for the Co-op following openings at Leeds, Kent, Newcastle, Oxford Brookes and Stirling.

Martin Rogers, head of new channels at Co-op, said: “Our university franchise stores are a great opportunity for us to grow our brand, share our values, and get our products into the hands of the next generation of customers and members and as the exclusive retail grocery store franchise partner for The National Union of Students and we’re already serving c.150k students up and down the country.”
