Leon doubles self-service kiosks in huge Asda rollout

Leon is more than doubling its self-serve coffee kiosks in the UK, primarily across Asda supermarkets as well as EG group convenience stores.

Four additional self-serve coffee kiosks will open across EG sites ahead of Christmas, with a further 100 launching in Asda stores early next year.

EG Group, which also owns Asda, completed its acquisition of Leon in May 2021.

Leon currently has 65 coffee-to-go kiosks in EG’s stores on its forecourts and 33 in Asda.

“Today’s announcement marks another milestone in our expansion programme – and shows how LEON’s coffee is fast becoming a favourite with coffee drinkers across the UK,” said Glenn Edwards, managing director, Leon. “We continue to invest and innovate, with the intention to make LEON more accessible to more customers. Whether in our drive-thrus, restaurants, self-serve or through our grocery offer, we continue to make it easier for everybody to eat well, live well and be kind to the planet.”

Leon has also started selling grocery coffee beans and grounds in 385 Asda stores.

The move follows an announcement by Asda last month that the supermarket retailer would open its first couple of standalone convenience stores before the end of the year.

The supermarket retailer said it wants to step up its presence in the convenience market, opening 30 more stores next year, which will create around 500 new jobs.

Asda Express will sell more than 3,000 products across groceries, hot and cold ‘food for now’, and Leon coffee.
