National forecourt operator Euro Garages is the latest business to sign up to the new £25m Mill Farm Sports Village currently taking shape in Wesham.
The site will include a full retail convenience development including branded fuel, a convenience store and a Kentucky Fried Chicken drive through. The petrol station will be the first in Kirkham and Wesham for several years after seven different petrol stations were gradually removed from the area over the past few years.
Euro Garages Commercial Director Ilyas Munshi said the Mill Farm site was the perfect location and a fantastic opportunity for the forecourt operator.
He added: “The Mill Farm development is a truly aspirational leisure and retail project coming to the Fylde Coast. It will generate a high level of footfall and will certainly benefit local residents and people who work in the area.”
The site will be one of 350 forecourt sites that Euro Garages control around the UK. The company currently operates and manages sites under BP, ESSO and Shell fuel brands as well as partnerships with leading retail names. Recruitment for the site is already underway.
Mill Farm owner David Haythornthwaite said: “Our plans have always been focused on providing facilities and services that really benefit the local community. It is hard to believe that there are no petrol stations in the area so when Euro Garages approached us it was an ideal partnership.”
