Grace Field Mobil Service Station Complex, at Nawaicoba, officially opened for business yesterday, after Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama officiated at the launch.

The complex is ready to provide fuel, food, and convenience items in a development that cost $10 million.

Mr Bainimarama said: “We need many more companies and entrepreneurs to start seeking innovative ways to better serve their customers.”

“But innovation aside, it’s the timing of this $10 million investment. We look to our partners in the private sector to help us write that story of Fiji’s economic recovery.”

“Taking opportunities for investment and development today, you position yourselves for success the day this pandemic eventually loses its stranglehold of the world economy. But let me be clear, even an economic crisis like COVID-19 is no excuse for complacency.”

“We expect development in our country to always meet high standards.”

 

Great Things
“When we do, together we can do great things; we can build great things – even with our borders virtually close, we can celebrate the great confidence we share in our future.”

The service station is Grace Road’s second commercial mixed-development project, after Grace Field Navua.

Grace Road group president, Daniel Kim, said: “We have expanded into other industries, but our heart is always in rural development.”

He said Grace Field Nawaicoba had a unique combination which included popular restaurant brand Sunny Pizza, and True Mart supermarket.

 

Live Healthy
“Through True Mart, we are bringing together the healthy farm produce from our Grace Farm and local farmers directly to our customers.

“We wish to inspire our customers to live a healthy lifestyle,” Mr Kim added.

Mobil Oil (Fiji) lead country manager, Adi Tamara, said the Mobil Grace Road Nawaicoba site included a large retail precinct, which offered a convenience store and supermarket, Noodle Story and Patisserie restaurants, where variety of quality food and drinks were sold.

A 100-space car park is an added feature of the complex.

Mr Tamara said the development was Fiji’s largest integrated service station facility. The complex employs 40 people.
