Euro Garages is one of the UK’s largest privately-owned forecourt operators.
We have an expanding portfolio of 70 freehold-owned sites predominantly located across the North of England and the Midlands.
Our turnover in 2011was at £305 million and we currently have over 1,000 staff members.
Customers can expect the same high-standard experience on all of our forecourts and retail sites as we are committed to providing excellent customer service, good value products and a wide range of facilities.
We have completed several new to market site developments as well as a significant number of regeneration projects where we have redeveloped existing sites so they reach their full potential.
See our case studies page for examples of site redevelopments.
“Euro Garages is a quality independent operator with a hugely innovative approach to the market. Their focus on site investment and operational performance sets them apart. We’re keen to support the group’s continued expansion as the UK forecourt retailing market consolidates.”
Blackburn-based 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 it has established itself as one of the UK’s fastest growing forecourt operators and is known for its innovative approach to forecourt trading.
The Issa family buys underperforming sites in high-density locations or unused greenfield land and then redevelops the area so it becomes a useful amenity for passing commuters and the local community.
Over the years the group’s success has been recognised by numerous awards including the Sunday Times Fast Track, Real Business Hot 100, The Forecourt Trader of the Year Awards and the English Asian Business Awards among others.
In July 2011 the company opened its first MSA on the M61 in Lancashire – Rivington Services. The £12.3 million project is Euro Garages’ biggest investment to date and the state-of-the-art-facilities include a Starbucks, Subway, Burger King, Spar and glazed foodcourt areas.
The management team is currently made up of Zuber Issa as CEO, Mohsin Issa as Managing Director and James Thornton as Finance Director.
