Blackburn-born brothers Zuber and Mohsin Issa, both 47, have grown their business from a single petrol station launched in 2001 into one of the world’s largest fuel and forecourt operators with 5,500 sites and 33,000 staff. In 2015, they sold a stake to TDR Capital in a deal valuing the company at £1.3bn, giving them financial backing for rapid expansion. In February 2018, the group made its US debut with the £1.5bn acquisition of a network of 762 convenience stores and, last November, it bought the petrol stations of Australian supermarket Woolworths for £900m.
