Based in Blackburn (UK), Euro Garages was founded in 2001 by brothers Zuber Issa and Mohsin Issa with the acquisition of a single petrol filling station in Bury, Greater Manchester. Since then, Euro Garages established itself as one of the UK’s fastest growing and most recognizable forecourt operators, with an expanding portfolio of more than 340 freehold-owned sites located throughout mainland UK.
In August 2014 funds managed by TDR Capital LLP acquired Delek Europe, a business servicing about 1,100 fuel stations & convenience stores in France and the Benelux countries with a focus on caring for the needs of people on the road. Shortly after this acquisition the business was renamed European Forecourt Retail Group (“EFR”).
In October 2016 Euro Garages and EFR Group joined forces to become a European leader in the petrol forecourt and convenience retail sector. In September 2017, after a year of being referred to as “Intervias”, the combined businesses was re-branded to be known “EG Group”.
In November 2017, EG Group secured approximately 1,000 forecourt assets from Esso in Germany, which are planned to be transferred and integrated into our existing network by the end of 2018. On 5 February 2018, EG Group announced our purchase of nearly 800 convenience stores in the US for $2.15 billion. Later that month, EG Group completed the acquisition of c.1200 sites in Italy from Esso.
In April 2018, EG Group completed the acquisition of a portfolio of 97 sites in the Netherlands to supplement our existing network in the country.
Mohsin and Zuber continue to lead the business.
