Cooplands Bakery and KFC open at Bassetlaw gas station, creating dozens of new jobs

King Edward service station, on London Road, Retford, now houses Asda on the Move, KFC and Cooplands Bakery.

Cooplands, recently acquired by EG Group, opened its first store at one of EG’s gas stations on Friday.

Hungry motorists will be able to stop and indulge in all the bestsellers from the UK’s second largest bakery chains, whether it’s fair trade coffee, a fresh sandwich, a candy bar or store-baked pastry.

Last week, the chain also unveiled a new range of sandwiches to satisfy lunchtime cravings.

For those looking for something more finger-licking good, KFC also joined the forecourt earlier this month after opening on April 7.

The store welcomed 35 new jobs to the area, as well as restaurant, take-out and drive-thru services.

The service station offers ample parking availability and conveniences for customers.

Asda opened its store at the EG Group petrol station in Retford in March this year.

Cooplands Director Belinda Youngs said: “We are delighted to be opening our first Cooplands petrol store and will certainly be bringing all these learnings and new products to customers across the rest of our store base.

“We look forward to welcoming new customers as they refuel on the way.”
