BP Connect Taupiri open for business

Release date: 7 November 2019

The new-to-industry BP Connect Taupiri opened its doors to customers at 6am on Wednesday morning (November 6).


BP Connect Taupiri has a retail convenience shop, a Wild Bean Cafe and Good Mood Food offer of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Häagen-Dazs ice cream and Wishbone meals. The site also offers a truckstop and an EV fast charging station, adding to the two EV chargers already available to customers at BP Connect Warkworth and BP Connect Pakuranga.


BP New Zealand General Manager of Retail and Assets Adrian McClellan says, “We know our customers have a choice when it comes to fuel retailers, so we choose the most convenient locations possible and work hard to give our customers as many reasons as possible to choose BP.”


“We’re really excited to offer an EV fast charging station at BP Connect Taupiri. We’re committed to providing accessible and convenient charger infrastructure and customers can re-charge in comfort with free WIFI and our Wild Bean Cafe barista made Fairtrade coffee while they wait.”


The new site also provides BP customers with four choices of fuel – BP Unleaded 91, BP Premium 95, BP Ultimate 98 and BP Ultimate Diesel. The truckstop offers both BP Ultimate Diesel and AdBlue.


“Customers can use the BPMe app to pay for their fuel from inside their car, as well as to pre-order coffee – all designed to make the BP experience faster and easier,” adds McClellan.


BP Connect stores use energy efficient LED lighting, utilise recycled heat from refrigeration systems for water heating and collect re-usable rainwater from the rooftop.


McClellan says, “The contribution to the local community goes beyond building a new store. BP employs local contractors and teams, with each site generating approximately 20 new jobs.” 


BP Connect Taupiri becomes the 107th BP Connect site nationwide with a further 104 BP dealer sites located around New Zealand.
