Applegreen Notes ‘Positive Start To Year’
Forecourt retailer Applegreen has issued a statement ahead of its AGM, taking place today (20 May) in Dublin, in which it said that ‘2016 has started well both in terms of trading and the development of the business’.
In Ireland, where it has added 17 sites to its estate since the end of last year, it has seen ‘trading volumes up in all categories of the business, particularly food’.
In the UK, it noted that it has ‘a significant number of prospects in both core markets at various stages of the planning process and are confident of further expanding our businesses in each territory’.
The retailer also highlighted the addition of Freshii, a Canadian concept that ‘provides fresh and nutritious meal choices that appeals to people on the go’, with the first Applegreen Freshii concept opening in June.
