Copdock services was built by Trusthouse Forte, under the Welcome Break name. The exact details of it aren't clear but it would have been similar to Ross Spur, with a similar range of Welcome Break brands from the time. A leaflet dated before 1992 claims "New services in East Anglia will be opening soon".
In 1988 Trusthouse Forte were in trouble for erecting several large motorway-style signs on the A12, to advertise the services, in addition to the official signposts provided.
The services were sold by Welcome Break in the 1990s as it was making little money, and Tesco had opened up next door, who they sold the land to. The services were demolished and absorbed in to the retail park, but 'Services' signs remained on the on the A14 until the 2000s.
