Top Track 100

Blackburn-born brothers Mohsin and Zuber Issa, both 48, have donated £350,000 to hospitals in east Lancashire and offered free coffee to NHS workers using the group’s petrol stations. The pair run Europe’s largest independent fuel retailer, backed by TDR Capital, which operates thousands of BP, Esso and Shell sites across Britain and the Continent. In 2018, EG began acquiring convenience stores in America, and now owns 1,700 sites across 31 states. It also purchased 600 petrol stations from Australian firm Woolworths for £900m in 2019, and in March of this year it acquired 146 KFC outlets in the UK and Ireland. Its sales include fuel duty.
