Sandwiches & Snacks: Filling good

You'd probably be hard-pushed to find many forecourts that don't stock Ginsters' products. Although the Cornish company is known for its pasties, it is also the number one-branded sandwich supplier in the UK. These sandwiches are delivered into thousands of forecourts on a daily basis, all with a three-day shelf life.

Chilled & fresh: Cool customers

The forecourt shopper's main reason for visiting a site is still to top up with fuel. But, according to Him's Convenience Tracking Programme survey of 22,000 shoppers, the second reason is for 'newsagent' items such as tobacco and newspapers, followed by food-to-go, top-up items and treats. These latter three categories all feature in your chillers for example, a sandwich, a pint of milk and an indulgent creamy yogurt.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
