Java coffee house has opened up a new branch at Shell Lugogo by-pass which adds another milestone to the Vivo Energy convenience retail.

Vivo Energy Uganda, the company that distributes and markets Shell branded fuels and lubricants, has invested in a programme to upgrade its Shell service stations to offer a wider range of services to both shoppers and motorists who visit Shell service stations by partnering with professionals who share in its ambition to invest and grow and provide better services to customers.

Speaking at a media breakfast to officially inaugurate the restaurant, the Managing Director Vivo Energy Uganda, Hans Paulsen said that Vivo Energy understands that customers are looking for more than just a fill-up when they drive to the Shell forecourts and it’s not just about the quality fuels and lubricants sold to the customers, but about delivering a complete service station experience. 

“Across our network we are looking to upgrade our service stations to a modern format and that is why this partnership with Java house with its well-known and high quality service restaurant brands is so important to us” Hans Said.

He further noted that the partnership will see Vivo Energy strategically add Java house restaurants to a number of Shell service stations in Uganda to offer customers the best and most memorable convenience retail experience.

We have a great relationship with Vivo Energy Uganda and are looking forward to increase our chain to more Shell service stations”, he said.
