Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Forecourt Trader of the Year: Joe Barrett and John Diviney, Applegreen M1 Southbound Lisburn, County Down

This is a site with the wow factor, and the highest-scoring operation across all the regional entries in this year's awards, with its striking design, full of innovation and flair.

M1 Lisburn was designed to be bigger and better than anything that Applegreen had done before. It has a total floor area of 1,560sq m, 300 customer seats, and a third of the building dedicated to customer circulation. More importantly it is run to the highest standards, offering a range of food and beverage options; seating and informal rest areas and meeting spaces offering free wi-fi and charging points.

The building has an upper level designed to be an oasis of comfort half is dedicated to the discreet and functional Applegreen lounge, great for business travellers; the rest the cosy Lavazza Coffee Bar. It is also home to six food offers: Greggs, Lavazza, Burger King, Subway, Chopstix and Applegreen's own brand, The Bakewell. Applegreen describe the site as a game changer in forecourt convenience. It is certainly a standout winner at this year's awards!
