Euro Garages is now one of the UK's largest privately-owned forecourt operators, with a portfolio of circa 200 sites across the whole of England, Scotland and Wales.

As an operator, it has taken over several key filling stations, including Ross Spur and a large site at Bolton West, and have then replaced them with large petrol stations offering a range of facilities.

Euro Garages purchased Little Chef from the Kout Food Group in February 2017.

Company History

Euro Garages were founded in 2001, by the Issa family, with a single independent petrol forecourt in Bury. Since then the company has expanded rapidly, with a reputation of taking over struggling, under-performing petrol stations. Then redeveloping them with additional retail facilities (with various franchise partners including Spar, Subway, Burger King, Greggs and Starbucks), in so turning them round.

It was announced between 12th April 2013 and April 2015 that Euro Garages have bought around 250 Esso filling stations as part of Esso selling off all of their corporate Snack & Shop and On the Run (about half of their UK filling stations). Euro Garages have turned the forecourt shops into Spar and introduced some of their partner brands such as Subway, Greggs and Starbucks on the Go as part of their ongoing investment plans. This has caused a bit of public controversy as many people prefer On the Run's former offering of Costa over Euro Garages' new food brands.

In June 2013, Euro Garages were the first to introduce Starbucks on the Go into their filling stations, replacing Coffee Nation. The machines get upgraded frequently meaning the new ones are bigger and more modern than the older ones.

In 2015, Euro Garages purchased 48 Shell sites.

They also plan to rebuild the forecourt at Bangor.

On 6 October 2016, Euro Garages secured a deal with Sainsbury's to open six trial Sainsbury's Local joint venture stores.

In December 2016, it emerged that Euro Garages were looking to take over Little Chef and purchased it on 1 February 2017. They have since closed five restaurants, looking to replace at least four of them with Starbucks.
