Lease Buy Sell PFS

Petrol stations have yet again become the “cash flow” businesses that allow survival through recession. Bread and butter requirements dictate that we need fuel (and bread and butter too!!)  The difficulty is that quite a few service stations changed hands during boom times at extraordinary prices for alternative use….that envisaged use no longer applies as the market requirement has changed and the need for cash flow to get through the down turn has brought the service station back into focus. The difficulty is the expectation on the part of owners in terms of lease value based on “boom time” capital value. This is not sustainable.  Volumes are down and forecourt shops have lost their gloss as amazing cash cows…these are now “Bread & Butter” businesses and should be priced and viewed as such.

Profit margins have been hammered due to the “Tesco” effect in lowering fuel prices to uneconomic levels and the comsumer demand for lower food and grocery prices. The high value forecourt shop now has to compete and the resultant business needs special management, less staff involvement, to keep cost to a minimum and constant promotion to ensure customer “loyalty” or recurring returns as the case may be!!

This is not everyones game.

    The site in Wexford is on the Ferrycarrig road out of Wexford and is carrying the TOPAZ brand however there is no contract with Topaz . The Owner is Slaney Motors and the lease will be negotiated with Bona Fide operators with a verifiable track record. The owners are very particular about who will operate the outlet and interested parties from the Border region will not be entertained. The site has been clsoed for almost a year but with new road changes imminent the potential should improve dramatically. Call me on 086-2565459 Oliver
