Reliance & BP to set up retail outlets along highways

Bharat Petroleum (BPCL) is also setting up similar facilities at its petrol pumps.

Reliance Industries and British Petroleum (BP) have joined hands to set up retail outlets, convenience stores and food joints at fuel stations along major highways.

According to a media report, Reliance Retail will operate the Smart Point convenience stores, digital stores, cafes and food outlets as well as charging points for EVs. It is said that talks are on with other food and beverage chains to open outlets at their properties as well.

This is not the first time that Reliance is entering the highway retail business. The company had started food and beverage outlets at its petrol pumps a few years ago, but with little success.

Bharat Petroleum (BPCL) has also partnered with Singapore-based Cube Highways to set up food outlets, convenience stores and toilet facilities at their petrol pumps.
