CBE would like to express a huge congratulations to Peter & Joe Hockenhull, and all the team in “The Stage” on winning “UK Forecourt Trader of the Year 2020”.
The £2m project in Wigston opened in 2020, following a slight delay caused by the current pandemic.
With its huge pear-shaped canopy, spacious forecourt and 300sq m building – consisting of a convenience store, barista coffee bar, seating area and ‘healthy’ all-day food offering – it is leading the way among today’s modern forecourt developments
The awards, held virtually, were presented by celebrity TV presenter, magician, writer and actor Stephen Mulhern. The event also saw CBE customer Joe Richardson, managing director of Jos Richardson & Son, win the Special Recognition Award, which was the result of an online vote.
