In Ireland, Applegreen is the public name of Petrogas Ltd, who own a large number of petrol stations of varying sizes. They later introduced them to the UK.

Applegreen provide the fuel at many Irish motorway services, however the only service areas they wholly operate are in Northern Ireland. As of 2016, they are keen to break into the UK mainland, planning two small motorway services in suburban areas and a safer bet with an a-road service area.

Brand Names

Applegreen franchises include Burger King, Subway and Costa. Previously, Wimpy was a common sight.

aCafé is Applegreen's own brand of restaurant. They also use The Bakewell and Freshii (previously Food To Go).


The optimistically-titled SuperStop is a consortium of Applegreen, TOP Oil and Pierse Contracting, with Applegreen being the most publicly active partner. SuperStop won the contract to design, build, finance, maintain and operate Ireland's first six motorway services in 2010. As of 2016, only three have opened.

SuperStop services follow the peculiar Irish design of having the filling station before the car park, causing confusion as vehicles approach it.

Applegreen have objected to the recent decision to award several services to Topaz.


Before Applegreen won the contract as SuperStop, they were unhappy with the delays to opening motorway services in Ireland, and built a large petrol station and Subway at M1 J5, Balbriggan. They claimed it was Ireland's first MSA, but it was never and still isn't signposted as such.
