Former Forecourt Trader of the Year, the Fraser Group, has opened its sixth forecourt and first site with a Budgens store.

 

 

The BP-branded forecourt has a 2,950sq ft Budgens store, a Subway franchise, Post Office, an Aquatec-branded car wash and two jet washes.

 

The rebuild took two years in the planning and is situated on the A44 in Yarnton.

 

Robert Fraser who operates the family business with brother Hugh, son Nick, operations manager Mark Wilson, and now Hugh's son Jonathan who has joined the family business to manage the new site said the business was due to open at the start of December until snow halted the development for 10 days.

 

"All we needed was six days to complete the concrete and tarmac because we said that come what may we would open on December 16," says Robert. "God looked after us and gave us the six days."
