In the UK we employ over 40,000 people across our six much loved brands: Costa Coffee, Premier Inn, Beefeater, Brewers Fayre and Taybarns. Our core business has changed over the years, yet we remain true to Samuel Whitbread’s founding spirit to put our people first, focus on the customer, and recognise that progress comes from innovative thinking. We now have around 2,500 hotels, restaurants and coffee shops, making us the UK’s largest hospitality company. Worldwide, we have over 1000 Costa stores in 29 countries and seven Premier Inn hotels in India and the Middle East, with more on the way. OUR VISION We will grow legendary brands by building a strong customer heartbeat and innovating to stay ahead. Our winning teams make everyday experiences special for customers, so they come back time and again, driving profitable growth. OUR VALUES Our values underpin everything we do at Whitbread, across all our brands: • Genuine - we really care about customers • Confident - we strive to be the best at what we do • Committed - we work hard for each other WHERE WE ARE GOING Over the past five years we have created 15,000 UK jobs by adding 137 more hotels, 96 more restaurants and 1,535 more coffee shops. We plan to create another 12,000 UK jobs in the next five years. We’ll grow Premier Inn UK by 45% to around 75,000 rooms and double Costa system sales to around £2bn by 2018. As we expand our global presence, we’ll also create thousands more jobs overseas too.
