South Africa: FreshStop opens its 280th service station

South African retailer FreshStop has opened a new site Durban with a Caltex petrol station.

Last update:

The site, located on one of the main one-way access routes into Durban central, has created more than 70 jobs across the Caltex fuel forecourt, FreshStop store and on-site McDonald’s drive-thru quick-service restaurant.

This is FreshStop’s 280th store nationally and is the largest and fastest growing convenience retail brand in South Africa.

In addition to the store’s range of fresh fruit and vegetables, selection of grocery items and the Grab n Go snacks, take home meals and refreshments, FreshStop Redhill has introduced an in-store Seattle Coffee bar with barista service and a Grill to Go outlet that will focus on a grilled chicken offering.

“We are extremely excited about the opening of FreshStop Redhill Service Station and I am confident that we’ll provide the best in service, pricing, food and product offering,” said Trevor Visvanathan, Store Retailer.

Situated in a mainly industrial area in Durban North, the Redhill Service Station offers workers and locals a convenience offering that will include breakfasts, lunches, take-home meals, great coffee and ATMs; and to top it all off, the McDonald’s restaurant will be the first of its kind in the world as it will not have a lobby but will instead focus mainly on drive-thru and McDelivery services.
