About Us

Rontec is the dominant independent service station operator in the UK, operating mainly under the Esso brand. We combine our proudly independent approach with key partnerships, working hand-in-hand with oil company Exxon Mobil. Their reputation as a global leader enables us to produce a dynamic mix of Esso branded forecourts with our Shop‘N Drive branded convenience stores. Our marketing strategy is customer-focused and driven by value, providing motorists with service that’s second to none. We offer a great opportunity for tenacious individuals, with a passion for retail and a good eye for business.


In everything we do, Rontec is committed to the philosophy of ‘hands-on’ management, coupled with our strong financial and operating information systems. A constant attention to detail and thorough management supervision ensure we can maintain the high standards and goals that we strive to achieve.

Service Station Model:

Customer Friendly

Wherever possible, Rontec service stations operate 24 hours a day and seven days a week. All self-service forecourts provide overtaking space, allowing customers to pass through without delaying access to the free pumps. Every petrol pump carries standard colour codes, to simplify the ‘self-service’ process and reduce the possibility of pumping the wrong fuel grade. The cashier will always have a clear view over the forecourt from their till so that our staff can help customers more effectively.

Construction Quality

Rontec builds its petrol stations to the highest industry construction specifications. The best quality and most suitable building materials are used at each site. This reduces maintenance costs while ensuring that the highest standards of presentation are met. We use concrete forecourts, which reduce drainage problems and prevent both seepage and the accumulation of water. Rontec hires a select number of specialised contractors for each site, and their experience in design and building guarantees a high-quality finish.


    Rontec aims to be the most customer-centred and most profitable independent service station operator in the UK. We’re always on the lookout for business-focused franchisees with a passion for retail. If you can match our passion, we want to hear from you. Successful operators in our network are hard-working, pay attention to detail and apply the Rontec business model. You will be expected to meet our exacting demands for high service and standards.

    • A site in a prime location and the highly successful Shop‘N Drive  format
