Part of the Sewell Group

Sewell on the go is part of the Sewell Group: a multi-disciplined group of companies operating across the North of England.  

Local convenience stores are just one part of what we offer as a Group. The estates side of our business offer data mapping, consultation services, building contractors and facilities management. 

It all started in the Early 1900's

In West Hull, Robert Sewell was selling fruit from a handcart to feed his family of 20. Forward to 1960, and Robert’s son, Ron, grew the fruit handcart business to half a dozen grocers in Hull and York.

Petrol stations near you

We built our very first petrol station in 1988 – this was our Sutton store which is still going strong! It was the first 24hr service station in the region.   

We then went on to acquire South Cave, Beverley, Maybury, Southcoates and North Ferriby between 1997 – 2002. 

We doubled our site
numbers in 2008

In the mid-noughties, we added six more petrol stations to our portfolio across hull and East Yorkshire; Willerby, Wytonbar, Holderness, Pocklington, Cottingham and Chanterlands Avenue. 

Forecourt Trader
of the Year 2009 & 2016

In 2016, Sewell on the go was given the prestigious award of Forecourt Trader of the Year. We picked up 14 awards overall which recognised our commitment to customer service and community engagement.  

Need storage? We’ve got storage!

2018 was an exciting year for us. We acquired Dunswell Service Station which meant we could extend our service offering to secure container storage units. Great for those moving house, those who have collectables or antiques 

Seeking a more sustainable future

We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to reduce our impact on the environment and support our local community. From beehives and planting trees and wild flowers, to working with local initiatives like Susdrainable to collect rainwater help reduce the risk of flooding and introducing apps like Gander so our customers can save money and reduce food waste.
