About us
Welcome Break is the now one of the largest independent motorway service operators in the UK and has led the revolution in changing the motorway service sector.

We've been around for over 50 years and we now have 33 sites, 6 standalone hotels and a Welcome Break Support centre in the UK. Our 5,500 strong team strive to deliver a welcome break for
 – more... our customers’, offering world class hospitality and retail in brands such as Waitrose, Starbucks, Subway, Harry Ramsden’s, Tossed, KFC, Ramada, Days Inn, Burger King, BP, Shell and Papa Johns, all in a friendly and relaxing environment. Everyone deserves to get a warm welcome and enjoyable break with the very best service, facilities, food and drinks we can provide.

Our business is all about people, the 80 million people who visit our sites each year, the teams who make the business a success. A big part of what we do at Welcome Break, and something that everyone in the team is passionate about, is supporting our charity partner BBC Children in Need. So far we have raised over £2 million for UK charities, through our teams dedication and our customers generosity.


Every day here is as challenging as it is enjoyable, as rewarding as it is fun. We believe that the same should be true once our working day is over, so we do everything we can to make sure our teams can get their work/life balance just right! What’s more, we work hard to build a culture of openness, listening to customers and our own people so we can identify opportunities to improve service, sites, innovation and engagement.
