Based in Blackburn, Euro Garages was founded in 2001 by brothers Mohsin and Zuber Issa with the acquisition of a single petrol filling station in Bury, Greater Manchester. Since then, Euro Garages has established itself as one of Europe’s leading petrol forecourt and convenience retailers with over 3000 sites across Europe.
Alongside an innovative approach to roadside retail property, Euro Garages has forged high-profile relationships with nationally and globally recognised retail and convenience brands. Now operating in excess of 100 Starbucks drive-to and drive-thru restaurants, over 160 Subway sub-stations, 120+ Greggs bakeries and 2 New KFC Drive-thrus, in the UK alone.
Our vision is to collaboratively engage and work with leading retail brand partners to be able to deliver a world class fuel, convenience, food and drink offer that exceeds the expectations of the modern consumer.
Our values and business ethos closely align with our partner brands:
- Market awareness with active responsiveness to convenience consumer trends and demands.
- Delivering value and results consistently to shareholders, stakeholders and partners.
- Commitment to on-going infrastructure and people investment to build a sustainable business model.
- Supporting local communities with a view to empowering individuals to grow, contribute and succeed.
In 2017, Euro Garages invested over £6.5m to drive a reduction in our carbon footprint across the UK estate. Solar panels have been installed, generating over 1.6 million kilowatts of energy – enough to power 400 homes – across more than a fifth of our forecourts. Over 1,112,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions will be saved year on year.
Other features of the investment include technologies that use power more economically, like solar thermal systems that can be used to heat up water. Reducing water consumption is a key part of Euro Garages’ energy strategy, with efficiency monitoring in place and the use of rain water harvesting where possible. Additionally, six of our motorway service stations feature rain water harvesting systems, collecting rain water which is then filtered to be used on site.
All of our new to industry sites include a minimum of two electric charging points, with the infrastructure installed to expand this number as demand increases.
