Coca-Cola HBC to open Costa Coffee outlets in several markets in 2020

July 18 (Reuters) - Soft drink bottler Coca-Cola HBC AG said on Thursday it will open Costa Coffee outlets in several markets next year, months after Coca-Cola Co bought the cafe chain from Whitbread in a $5.1 billion deal.

The company, which sells Coca-Cola drinks in 28 countries mostly in Europe, plans to launch Costa Coffee in at least 10 of those markets, including Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and Switzerland.
