The station is located in the East Leeds suburb of Cross Gates, approximately 4 miles away from Leeds city centre. It is an area of high street potential that includes a shopping centre, transport links, schools, and pubs.

Katie, the owner of the Hit Coffee café, said: “I have over 16 years’ experience in hospitality and wanted to create a place that is warm and welcoming to everyone. I wanted a name that meant something to me. Therefore, I chose my children’s initials which then made up HIT.”
