Speaking to the Donegal Daily, Anthony explained that one of the main decisions that helped him push the business forward was his partnership with leading Irish owned fuel provider Top Oil.
"All our sites are Top Oil," Anthony said. "I have a good relationship with them and when you have a good partnership approach, its much easier to develop other sites". Anthony said he and Top Oil shared a lot of "common ground" in terms of ambition and market positioning, which he expects will help develop further sites and opportunities going forward. "It's a really strong Irish brand, and I love the livery, the colours are modern and fresh and very appealing to customers," he said.
"Top Oils approach is all about providing quality fuel and its brand is strong and reliable." What's also important for Anthony is the fuel company's adaptability, and readiness to change, to best suit the market.
"Top Oil is constantly evolving their approach," he said. "That's a really important process for any business and helps keep the brand fresh and attractive."
The partnership and close working relationship with Top Oil aligns strongly with Anthony's approach to building the company.
