Ten new jobs for the area as Bray service station undergoes significant refurbishment
There was a lot to celebrate today at Maxol Ardbrae, located on Vevay Road, Bray, Co Wicklow as the site reopened following a substantial investment of €1.7 million with a range of fantastic in-store upgrades including new food offerings and customer seating.
The new and improved Maxol Ardbrae reopens as licensee Jim Shanahan celebrates almost 40 years with the company.
The latest investment brings an improved service amenity to the community of Bray, along with visitors to the town and commuters and has resulted in the creation of ten new jobs for the area.
The investment has included the introduction of a new Maxol Deli and Mexican food offering – Taste of Mexi-Co, giving customers a wide choice of freshly made sandwiches to tasty burritos from early morning to evening every day.
The refurbishment also includes improvements to the car wash facility, eight additional car parking spaces, a new seating area for 26 customers, free customer WIFI and the introduction of Maxol’s new premium fuel range.
Licensee of Maxol Ardbrae, Jim Shanahan, who was presented with a special cake to mark his 40 years at the company, commented “We are thrilled to reopen our doors and welcome back our customers. The last few months have been challenging for all of us in many ways and we are very delighted to be in a position where we can offer an improved customer experience with two new food offerings and a brand new seating area, which will of course be managed in line with current social distancing rules.”
The transformation is part of The Maxol Group’s national multi-million Euro investment plan across its network. This year seven sites will be fully refurbished to the latest Maxol forecourt and instore design. .
Speaking of the company’s latest investment, Brian Donaldson, CEO of The Maxol Group said; “Firstly, I’d like to say a big thank you to Jim for his commitment and stellar work he has done for Maxol for nearly 40 years. Today’s announcement is also significant for us given the challenging climate of late. Despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic affecting most businesses in Ireland, we are pleased to continue our national investment programme, introducing our premium fuels and improving our in-store food offer to customers across the country.
“We very much look forward to bringing our latest innovative forecourt model to the community of Bray, and with Jim at the helm, they are certainly in good hands.”
