Who are Euro Garages?
If you haven’t already heard of us or visited one of our amazing stores, then here’s what you need to know about us… We are one of the UK’s fastest growing and most recognised forecourt operators and we are partnered with all of your well known favourite brands including Starbucks, KFC, Greggs, Subway and Burger King!
Our employees are at the heart of what we do and we owe our success to our fantastic teams, that’s why we need passionate, motivated and customer focused people like you to join our EG family!

What will my role look like?
We don’t need to tell you what KFC is because we know you have already tried, tested and love our Kentucky Fried Chicken! This insane fast food brand has a place in all of our hearts, our famous products speak for themselves and our premium secret ingredients, signature recipes and finger licking chicken served by the kindest, friendliest employees is what keeps our customers content and coming back for more…
As a KFC Restaurant Manager you are the leader of your busy store and will be supported by an enthusiastic passionate team of around 40-60 colleagues! Because our restaurants are so popular it is important that you lead your team to meet customer demands and deliver amazing customer service in this quick fast food environment.
It takes commitment, hard work and dedication to be a successful Restaurant Manager but don’t be fooled, this doesn’t mean you can’t have fun and enjoy the benefits and rewards that this role brings. You are in charge of all aspects of the store including motivating, coaching and training your team, meeting sales and profitability targets, banking and finance duties, stock take and deliveries, ensuring the store looks vibrant and has a great atmosphere and most importantly ensuring the team delivers exceptional customer service every time.
