Vivo Energy Uganda, the company that distributes and markets Shell branded fuels and lubricants, has invested in a programme to upgrade its Shell service stations to offer a wider range of services.
The new programme targets both shoppers and motorists who visit Shell service stations by partnering with professionals who share in its ambition to invest and grow and provide better services to customers.
Vivo Energy Uganda’s latest partnership is with Java Coffee House, a food and beverages retailer. The former will be setting up food joints at Shell fuel stations. On Monday the partnership saw another Java outlet opened at Shell Lugogo bypass.
The Managing Director Vivo Energy Uganda, Hans Paulsen, said that Vivo Energy understands that customers are looking for more than just a fill-up when they drive to the Shell forecourts.
Paulsen said that it’s not just about the quality fuels and lubricants sold to the customers, but about delivering a complete service station experience. He said that Shell fuel stations are looking forward to growing this partnership.
“Across our network we are looking to upgrade our service stations to a modern format and that is why this partnership with Java house with its well-known and high quality service restaurant brands is so important to us” Paulsen said.
He further noted that the partnership will see Vivo Energy strategically add Java house restaurants to a number of Shell service stations in Uganda to offer customers the best and most memorable convenience retail experience.
The Business Development manager Java House, Sam Imende said that they are delighted to have partnered with Vivo Energy Uganda, allowing it to operate outlets at Shell service stations in Uganda.
“This partnership will benefit customers, giving them more convenience, quality and choice. We have a great relationship with Vivo Energy Uganda and are looking forward to increase our chain to more Shell service stations”, he said.
