Roadchef to invest in fast food partnerships after sale to asset management giant


Roadchef has vowed to step up its partnerships with a number of the UK’s most popular brands after being bought by a global asset management giant.

The company, which operates 30 motorway service locations and serves more than 50 million customers a year, will look to deepen ties with the likes of McDonald’s, Costa Coffee and Leon following its takeover by Macquarie Asset Management.

Macquarie is one of the largest investors in the UK, having invested and arranged more than £50 billion in the country’s essential infrastructure in recent years.

Its funding will allow Roadchef to invest in sites, facilities and branded partnerships with fast food operators, as well as accelerate the roll-out of fast-charging electric vehicle infrastructure.

Roadchef operates 91,000 square feet of catering space across its sites, including own-brand offerings such as Fresh Food Cafe and Restbite.

Mark Fox, CEO of Roadchef, said: “We are delighted to continue our growth journey with Macquarie Asset Management, who recognise our potential and will continue to invest, grow and build Roadchef.”
