If you have landed a prime location for a gas station that is right in the heart of heavy traffic, it is not the time to start thinking small. Increased numbers of traffic are one indicator that you will bring in steady traffic flow. You have to prepare the property to handle a high volume of customers.
Making full use of a property close to the primary access of heavy traffic flow is the perfect spot for multi-function gas station. It is a guaranteed way to increase your profit potential by merely having all of the facilities needed for a large customer base. Offering quality food, cold drinks, gasoline, coffee, car wash, and air compressors will draw a steady stream of customers.
Commercial and Non-Commercial Vehicles
You may not need to build an entire truck stop in the location you purchased, but you still need to try and set aside an area that is for commercial vehicles to fuel up. Delivery trucks, vans, and pickups that take diesel will need a larger area or canopy under which they can park. The more inviting it is, the more business you will get.
It is not always an easy task to find a car wash, especially if you are traveling through and are unfamiliar with the area. Adding a car wash takes up very little space and can dramatically increase your profits if there are no others nearby.
Many sales can come from impulse buys and by simply having items available that are convenient to pick up while you are getting gas. It can be everything from snack foods and drinks to asporin and toilet paper. You can have a well-stocked mini-store in a small area.
Fast Food or Deli
Everyone has to eat. Consider adding some franchised mini fast food restaurant installed in your station. If there is not enough room, add a small deli center. Adding a source of hot foods to your list of items for sale can crank up the profits and popularity of your station.
Well-Lit and Colorful
People will feel safer to stop and fuel up at night if you keep the premises well-lit. Add splashes of brilliant color to the exterior of your building and your rain canopy for visibility from the highway.
