North Devon forecourt owner Naeem Ahmad (pictured above) has seen a surge in sales and attention from the local and national press after he added home-made curries to his range. Naeem who has run the Oasis Service Station at Braunton for four-and-a-half years, says sales have grown to 250-300 units a week since their introduction in September and both footfall and fuel sales have increased.

The curries are supplied in microwaveable containers and stocked in the store’s sandwich chiller. The range has grown to 24 options with around 15-16 in stock at any one time.
