I run 'Britain's most luxurious petrol station' with Subway and Costa on site (2024)

A PETROL station boss boasts the fanciest garage in the UK, and says his massive range of snacks, drinks and deals are ones "you can’t beat”.

Families flock from afar to the flashy Spar store, which went viral on social media for its rare American treats and in-house slushy machine.





Site manager Amrik Singh, 30, is revelling in the sweet taste of success as his BP station is trending as one on the best in the nation.

His service station took off after it was shared on TikTok, as viewers gawked at it's massive stock of sweets and protein shakes.

It also features a Subway, Spar shop and a 24-hour Costa.

Amrik said: “We’re the most competitively priced garage forecourt shop in the country and we sell a range of sought-after American sweets and drinks that aren’t for sale elsewhere."

But while it is already a huge hit with motorists, the Sheffield garage has also caught the ire of some parents thanks to edgy marketing on one of its gym supplements.

On the vast shelves of popular protein shakes and workout formulas, one eagle-eyed customer found a tub labelled: “I Am F**ked Up”.

The unique supplement was found right next to a sky-high confectionary corner of popcorn and pick and mix.

Mum-of-four Jade Handley, 29, who had travelled to the shop with her partner and three of their kids simply to buy American goodies, said: “It’s a pretty good shop.

“They've got the best sweets from America you can’t get anywhere and I can never resist a Tango Ice Blast.

“But I don’t think the swear words on the pre work out formulas right next to the sweets goes down well".

Turning their back on the containers of cloudy apple flavour Swedish supplements “for real hardcore training athletes only,” the family made a beeline to the sweets they had come for.

Jade, who splashed out over £35 on sweets and snacks at the petrol station, said: “I saw this place was all the rave on TikTok so we’ve come to check it out.

“I think the sweets are a bit more than usual prices but these are from America, they're the real deal so are worth it."

Jade's lorry driver boyfriend Martin Turner, 32, added: “It’s a good shop with stuff you don’t find elsewhere and had been worth the journey over."

Proudly showing The Sun Online team around his store, Amrik said: “We are very popular and it is demanding work but I enjoy it.

"We are the best in price and the best in size. We’re all under one roof and we sell everything you need on a daily basis."

We are open 24 hours, 365 days a year... you can't beat us

Amrik Singh, 30

The store, which does not have a licence to sell alcohol, appeals to customers right as they walk in - with walls covered top to bottom with shelves of iconic American sweets.

Amrik said his customers flock from all around, but said the local Uni students particularly enjoy taking advantage of round the clock Uber deliveries from Subway.

But with the station right next to Sheffield United's stadium, he admitted: “On match days it is madness and difficult to handle.

"We have to increase our minimum five staff to ten or more.”

One Gym-loving customer, chef Ali Cheraghi, 39, said he visits the store for his gym supplements as he gets a "really good deal.”

He added: “I train at the gym every day before work - I buy the gold standard whey for £52.99, a month's supply, it is a good price, cheaper than elsewhere. I come out of my way to get it.”

First time customer Janet Thornton said the shop "seems to cater for everyone’s needs.”

The gran visited the store for a treat for 13-year-old grandson Jack Clark - who described the drinks selection as "proper good."

Despite the shop’s newfound success, Amrik admitted they had missed out on a sales trick that could have netted him an extra fortune.

They were offered the chance to supply a new trendy Logan Paul energy drink Prime Hydration, but the boss turned it down.

He said: “It was not very well known when it was offered to us so we said no.
