M&S Food Opens New Store at Leeds Skelton Lake Services, Creating 14 Jobs

Leeds Skelton Lake services has just welcomed M&S Food to its growing list of premium food and drink outlets. Operated by Moto Hospitality, this new addition is set to enhance the travel experience for motorists and visitors alike, located conveniently at Junction 45 of the M1.

The introduction of M&S Food, which has created 14 new jobs, brings a selection of high-quality, on-the-move food options, including sandwiches, refreshing drinks, and delicious snacks. This aligns with the latest Transport Focus Motorway Service Users survey, which ranked Extra Motorway Service Areas (MSA) as the UK’s top operator for customer satisfaction.

Tom Dobson, CEO at Extra MSA Group, expressed his excitement about this new opening, stating, “We’re delighted to have M&S join our extensive choice of food and drink brands at Leeds Skelton Lake services, further enhancing our customers’ experience during their stops with us. M&S will provide even more choice, offering a range of convenience foods and high-quality ingredients, ensuring that whether you’re grabbing a bite on the go or topping up your food shop, we’ve got you covered.”

The addition of M&S Food helps Extra MSA respond to the increasing customer demand for fresh and healthy food options. The store will cater to various dietary requirements, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.

Leeds Skelton Lake is already home to several beloved food and drink brands, such as Nando’s, Pizza Express, Tortilla, and LEON. The services have recently seen significant investment in their food and drink offerings, with the opening of a 24-hour McDonald’s and a Greggs.

Matt Harrison, Channels Director at M&S Food, shared his enthusiasm: “It’s fantastic to be opening a new convenience store at Leeds Skelton Lake, offering delicious, great value and unbeatable quality M&S food to customers. There will be something for everyone, whether you’re grabbing your favourite car snacks for a long journey or looking for the latest M&S Dine In. We now have six convenience stores across Leeds, alongside our main stores, and we look forward to welcoming regular M&S shoppers and new customers alike to the new store.”

This new store marks the sixth M&S Food convenience outlet at Extra MSA Group sites across the UK, reflecting the retailer’s commitment to expanding its reach and providing quality food options to travellers nationwide.
