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

Roadchef awards £60m contract to Blakemore Wholesale

01 March, 2013

Roadchef has awarded a contract worth £60m over five year to Blakemore Wholesale.

The contract is to provide a range of confectionery, grocery and chilled foods, tobacco and motor oils to forecourt stores and WH Smith shops at 37 Roadchef sites at 27 motorway service areas across Britain.

Blakemore Wholesale managing director Sam Wilcox said: “This is a great win for Blakemore Wholesale and further enhances our credentials as a credible alternative to the existing operators in the marketplace.

“We’ve created a bespoke solution for Roadchef, and we’re delighted to be working with them in developing a long-term mutually beneficial partnership.”

The contract is the second that the AF Blakemore group has won with Roadchef over the course of its last financial year.

In September 2012 Blakemore Foodservice commenced a three-year catering contract with the motorway services provider worth an additional £7m a year.
