SNAX 24, with nearly 40 years of extensive experience, has developed its own model of petrol filling stations combined with its new shop-retailing concept. This model incorporates:
- Large forecourt area with designated customer parking.
- Maximum ease of use for customers with high visibility and easy access on and off the road.
- High quality construction materials built to uniform specification.
- Multi-programmed car wash and jet wash equipment.
- An air-conditioned SNAX 24 convenience store with in-store bakery.
- Well-trained and helpful staff.
- Well-developed systems for both stock control and sales interrogation.
- There are a number of key operational aspects and design criteria that are fundamental to SNAX 24′s petrol retailing strategy.
The SNAX 24′s service stations must be highly visible to passing traffic from both sides. High canopies to accommodate HGV vehicles along with fast fill pumps, to cater for the increasing diesel market. Where possible, maintenance-free materials are used, e.g., brick instead of plaster, plain wood instead of painted and posters and advert boards instead of colour panels.
SNAX 24 service stations are operational wherever possible, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Self-service forecourts must provide significant overtaking space allowing customers to pass without delaying free pumps. Every petrol pump carries standard colour codes in order to simplify the “self service” process for customers and to reduce the possibility of the customer pumping the wrong fuel grade. The cashier will always have a clear view over the forecourt so that staff can help the customers.
SNAX 24 builds its petrol stations to the highest industry construction specifications. The highest quality and most suitable building materials are used at each site in order to reduce maintenance costs, while ensuring the very highest presentational aspect. SNAX 24 uses concrete forecourts, which reduce drainage problems and prevent both the accumulation of water and seepage. SNAX 24 utilises the services of a limited number of specialised contractors whose experience of building the uniform design ensures a high quality and standards of finish.
Where possible sites are equipped with the latest designed roll over wash technology.This includes foam brushes,hot and cold waxes,under chassis washes, drying and even on some sites a polishing facility.Washes can be bought using a key code system purchased through the shop.Snax 24 have installed water reclaimation systems on some sites to reduce water usage and enable high quality washing through times of water shortage.Our car washes also offer great value for money and our ever popular mid week half price promotion continues to increase sales.
The majority of sites are fitted with Buy Time jet washes which are increasingly popular and give the user full control of the programme they wish to use and high quality hogs hair brushes to give a better all over clean.
All sites have air machines and vacuuming facilities.
