Budgens is a convenience store chain owned by Booker Group, which is itself now owned by Tesco.
Budgens store tend to be very similar to Londis, but are bigger with more of a supermarket style.
The number of stores attached to the forecourts was increased while they were owned by Musgrave. Some of these had been branded 'Xpress Budgens', a legacy of Budgens replacing the 7-Eleven chain.
More recently, Booker partnered with MFG to roll Budgens out across many of their filling stations.

Welcome Break's new Newark site includes a Budgens store. This is a result of their new parent company's relationship with Booker. While the Newark site isn't on a motorway, there is the potential that more locations could eventually be opened.
