A popular coffee chain will open its drive thru in Weston next month.
Starbucks has confirmed its restaurant at the Budgens Airport Roundabout Garage, in Locking Moor Road, will open in December.
The 2,375sq.m site will include a clearance bar, order point canopy, menus, condensers, and illuminated signs.
Budgens Garage opened in October and it operates 24 hours a day, with Shell, Greggs and a Costa Express already housed in the unit.
Concerns were raised by neighbours over the felling of trees to give drivers heading into Weston off the M5 a clear view of the garage.
The drive thru will be Weston's first and only Starbucks store, but it does operate a coffee shop at Sedgemoor North service station on the M5 northbound.
A Starbucks spokesman said: "We look forward to opening a new drive thru at the Airport Roundabout in December and will bring 15 jobs to the Weston community."
