Great news for shoppers! The Regent Arcade has announced three new businesses opening soon, including an iconic doughnut store, Krispy Kreme.

Bubble tea, donuts and coffee

Taking over the spot next to KIBOU, Black Sheep Coffee will sell a range of hot drinks, including their specialty-grade Robusta coffee, alongside a variety of delicious waffles, pastries, smoothies, muffins, bagels, and toasties. The London-based coffee chain started as a stall in Camden and now has over 35 stores in several large cities. Customers not only flock to their cafes for some of the world’s best quality Robusta brews but also for the firm’s inspirational policies on plastic and fighting social exclusion with the offer of free coffees to homeless people.

Mooboo Bubble Tea will also open soon. Established in 2012 Mooboo bubble tea was set up in response to a growing demand to bridge the gap between Far East culture and Western tastes. One the largest bubble tea operators in the UK, Mooboo offers more than 1000 combinations, hoping to give customers the most authentic flavour from the East.

Local fans of the iconic doughnut store, Krispy Kreme, have been sharing their delight about the store opening on social media. The home of the original glazed doughnut has been on the wish list of many Cheltonians for a long time. The Regent Arcade is delighted to finally welcome this well-known brand to Cheltenham.

Scott Lahive, Centre Manager for Regent Arcade said, “We are so proud to welcome such a fantastic line up of brands to Regent Arcade and know our shoppers will equally be as pleased with this news. We love it when new retailers open in the centre and the buzz that it brings, especially when it means there’s a variety of new food and drink to sample. We’re confident our customers are going to enjoy the new additions when visiting us.”

All stores are set to open separately and are expected to open their doors as early as Spring 2023.
