Circle K, one of Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, has opened the largest service station in its global network; Circle K Gorey on the M11 in Co Wexford.
The new service station will create 40 new jobs in the locality.
The station, which officially opened on Thursday, 28 March, is expected to cater for up to 20,000 Irish commuters daily.
The Gorey site, which will be open 24/7, will feature an extensive deli food range, a Mexican street food offering, and a fully serviced barista offering.
The site will also have a McDonald's restaurant.

There will be a seated café area; an indoor and outdoor children’s play area; a Fáilte Ireland tourist information point and extensive parking for customers including truck and coach spaces.
“It is a momentous occasion for Circle K, as we mark the opening of the largest Circle K in the entire global Circle K network, on the M11 at Gorey and look forward to catering for the needs of some 20,000 motorists daily,” Niall Anderton, Managing Director of Circle K Ireland, said.
“With this newest addition to the Circle K network, we are also delighted to bring 40 new jobs to the local area which further reinforces Circle K’s ongoing commitment to investment and job creation in the Irish market.”
The opening is part of a greater €35 million investment by Circle K into the development of four new sites, which were announced last year.
The new sites will open in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare and Athlone, Co. Westmeath, in addition to the Gorey station and the site located at J7 Kill on the N& which opened in December.
“2019 is another huge year for Circle K as we will open two further state of the art sites on the M9 at Kilcullen in Co. Kildare and the M6 at Athlone, Co. Westmeath which again will be significant additions to the Irish transport network,” Anderton added.
