BP opens third Wild Bean Cafe in the Top of the South


BP Connect Haven Road swung open its doors yesterday morning, marking the third Wild Bean Cafe to open in the Top of the South this year.

BP Head of Retail Debi Boffa says BP is committed to the region and excited to open another new store in the area.

“In the past six months we’ve opened three new stores; one in Blenheim, one in Richmond and one right here in Nelson.

“While there are new employment opportunities as a result of our expanded operations, it’s fantastic to have seen so many familiar faces transition across from the previous stores as well,” she says.

Boffa says BP has generated roughly 50 part-time and full-time positions across its three new stores.

The new 24-hour operation on Haven Road has wide lanes for easy access, ample parking, a carwash and four fuels across every pump; Unleaded 91, Premium 95, Ultimate 98 and Diesel.

The Haven Road store will also accept New Zealand’s first-ever pay-in-car technology.

“BPMe is our brand new App that was designed to simplify and accelerate the re-fuelling process.

“It’s really fun to use and it’s almost too easy,” she says.

“The pay-in-car feature is only available to BP Fuelcard customers at the moment, but customers can still download the App and scan it at Wild Bean Cafe for coffee loyalty benefits until the personal payment features are ready later in the year.”

To celebrate the store opening, from Wednesday, September 28, BP Connect Haven Road is offering a five-day discount for registered AA and AA Smartfuel cardholders of 10 cents per litre on up to 50 litres when a customer spends $40 or more on fuel.
