Bosses of Top 50 Indie Euro Garages have outlined their plans for the future as its joint CEOs received an international award for their leadership in convenience retailing.

Commercial director Ilyas Munshi said Euro Garages had access to 1,100 forecourt sites across France and Benelux, and was poised to expand in Europe, following its deal with London-based private equity firm TDR Capital in 2015.

He said the company was entering an exciting new phase with plans to merge the UK and continental operations; and to roll out its partnerships with major fuel, foodservice and convenience brands.
