When a service station business opportunity presents itself, BP will first search the database of pre-approved Applicants to find a suitable match. 

If a suitable Applicant is sourced, he/ she will be requested to match the required asking price and compile a business plan.

To be considered for the pre-approved Pool, the application form must be completed in full. Required supporting documents:
  • BP application form
  • ID copies
  • Company registration documents
