Circle K, Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, recently opened the largest service station in its global network at Circle K Gorey on the M11 in County Wexford, creating 40 new jobs in the locality.
The newest opening is part of an overall investment of €35 million by Circle K, announced in 2018, into the development of four new sites. The first of these sites located at J7 Kill on the N7 opened just last December, with further new site openings scheduled for this year in Kilcullen, County Kildare and Athlone, County Westmeath along with this newest addition at Gorey.
Circle K Gorey on the M11 boasts a range of superb offerings including Circle K’s miles and milesPLUS advanced premium fuels, fast-charge points for electric vehicles and dedicated pumps for AdBlue and Gasoil customers. Also available are Circle K’s renowned and extensive deli food range, Mexican street food outlet “Cantina”; a fully serviced barista offering exciting new innovations in the areas of frozen drinks and ice cream and Circle K’s own specialty coffee Simply Great Coffee. Topping off the extensive offering at the Gorey site which will be open on a 24/7 basis, there is a seated café area; an indoor and outdoor children’s play area; a Fáilte Ireland tourist information point and extensive parking for customers including truck and coach spaces. The site will also have a McDonalds restaurant.
The opening of Circle K Gorey is a hugely significant move for Circle K, with the new state of the art site being of significant strategic importance to the M11/N11 commuter belt, where Circle K expects to cater for up to 20,000 Irish commuters daily.
