Wimpy was exclusive to Roadchef and could be found at most of their services. Roadchef started to replace Wimpy with McDonald's, but they were slow to roll out the successful trial and many Wimpy outlets have become The Burger Company, possibly as a temporary arrangement.

Wimpy's first 'proper' service station outlet was a trial at Durham services when they opened in 1996, but there used to be a Wimpy Express bar at Knutsford in the 1970s.

Dr Beak's Chicken was a sister, chicken offer from Wimpy only at Roadchef services, but it was rebranded to 'Wimpy Chicken'.
