To say Starbucks are experts in coffee is true, but the brand is not just about coffee. The whole experience and everything that makes that experience unique, from the moment you walk in the door to when you leave, is what keeps people coming back.
Euro Garages and Starbucks first embarked upon their unique partnership in early 2010 with the opening of a coffee house in Deeside. Now, in 2016, Euro Garages have in excess of 67 Starbucks sites across the UK, both drive-to and drive-thru, with many more on the way.

Sainsbury’s commitment to helping customers live well for less has been at the heart of what they do since 1869. Today that means making customers’ lives better and easier every day by offering great quality and service at fair prices, wherever and whenever they want it.
It’s been a big year for Sainsbury’s; 2016 saw them acquire Home Retail Group, the owner of Argos and Habitat, making them one of the UK’s leading food and non-food retailers and, in October, a ground-breaking partnership with Euro Garages was announced. Our mutual passion for quality and convenience has brought Sainsbury’s Local to six of our most-loved forecourts, expanding our offering and ensuring the best possible experience for our customers.
The bulk of our estate – a staggering 200 sites, or 60% of our estate – operate Esso forecourts. Esso have always innovated both inside and outside of the petrol forecourt. In the 1920’s their Foden steam tanker delivered fuel to some of the first kerbside petrol pumps, in 1986 they were the first to introduce unleaded fuel and today Synergy-branded (non-steam) tankers are delivering Esso Synergy fuels in countries around the world. We can certainly appreciate pushing boundaries here at Euro Garages.
Operating in the UK since 1897, Shell are a long-established staple of the British forecourt.

BP’s history is full of discoveries, starting in 1908 with oil found in a rugged part of Persia after a long and difficult search. Since then, discoveries large and small have fuelled the progress of this company.

Currently, 70 sites on our estate – that’s 20% – proudly fly the BP flag.
