Forecourt Retailers Prove Their Worth
Ireland's Forecourt & Convience Retailer (IFCR) Awards 2012 were a huge success last Friday Night and proved just why the country's Forecourt & Convenience Retailers are vital to the Irish Economy.
The country's only specialist awards ceremony for the forecourt reatiling industry and backed by Ireland's Forecourt & Convenience Retailer Magazine, the seventh annual IFCR Awards were attended by more than 300 industry professionals who saw Ireland's leading Retailers vying for prestigious industry accolades.
Sponsored by PostPoint and held at Dublin's Shelbourne Hotel, the IFCR Awards were hosted by TV3 Star Sinead Desmond and saw Junction 14 Mayfield Service Station, Co. Kildare crowned King of the Forecourts.
Just over 12 months after opening, the state-of-the-art Monasterevin Service Station just off the M7, scooped the Newcomer of the Year Award and the went on to beat the 44 other finalists to win the biggest All Ireland Award in the industry; the coveted Forecourt Retailer of the Year title.
Independtly judged by Spotcheck, there were 14 hotly contested categories.
"Winning the Forecourt Retailer of the Year award after just 14 Months trading at Junction 14 Mayfield is a great honour for all of us involved" said Donal Fitzpatrick Co-Owner of Junction 14 Mayfield.
"We put eight years of planning into ensuring that our Motorway Service area is a unique and innovative offering for Irish Motorists. The fact that this has been aknowledged as the best in the Business means a huge amount to our team. It is through the hard work and determination of Manager Gavin Moran, Assistant Manager Maria Irwin and their team that this award has been achieved. It is not without pride for Liam Fitzpatrick & Myself that our vision for motorway services in Ireland has been recognised and also has been so successful. Our brand partners on theis site have had a hugely positive influence on the success too; Texaco, Spar, Insomnia and Supermac's. Without their support, this would not have been possible. Finally, of course we would like to thank our many satisfied customers who have supported us wholeheartedly since we opened in 2011."
