Expansion planned by retailer

Scotfresh hires Steven as managing director

Convenience store chain Scotfresh has appointed experienced industry executive Mark Steven as managing director.

Mr Steven (pictured) held senior positions with Scottish multi-site operators Botterills (Spar) and KeyStore (Park’s). He has also worked recently for convenience and fuel technology firms Oracle and Point Four.

Currently operating eight stores across Glasgow and the central belt, Scotfresh is an established player in the Scottish convenience marketplace and has bold plans for growth.
Company chairman Shaun Marwaha said Mr Steven had an “outstanding track record focused around customer service, innovation and technology”.

Mr Steven said he was joining the firm at an “exciting and crucial” time in its development.

The business has a number of store openings in the pipeline, further development of the OOR Kitchen food to go concept and ongoing efforts to improve efficiencies in a fiercely competitive convenience retail sector.

Founded by Mr Marwaha’s parents Jack and Rita in the east end of Glasgow almost 35 years ago, the business still owns its original store in Riddrie but has expanded with stores in the city’s west end, Cardonald, Scotstoun and Kirklee as well as Denny, Irvine and Armadale.
