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

Footfall rockets thanks to new food-to-go offer

A Nisa Local forecourt shop, at Brighouse, West Yorkshire, which opened its doors for the first time earlier this year, has seen footfall rocket after launching its own bespoke food-to-go offering.

Husband and wife team, Salim and Mumtaz Patel, run the Crown Services store, having operated a petrol station on the same site for more than 20 years.

In February they opened the forecourt store after demolishing a kiosk that previously occupied the site and replaced it with a full convenience store.

A full kitchen area was fitted out enabling them to offer a complete food-to-go service. Mumtaz said: "We started serving the fresh, hot food in April once we had settled into the shop. We have had a really positive response from our customers. We haven't done any advertising at all yet but there are always queues of people."

The range includes home-made samosas and authentic Asian recipes, as well as more typical filled baguettes.
