Trivia and History
During the 1980s, the Welsh Government majorly upgraded the A483 around this area to dual carriageway to bypass Wrexham town centre. As part of this, a service area was built at the new junction 3 at Rhostyllen. This opened with an Esso filling station and the Wrexham branch of Little Chef in 1987. This was then joined by a Little Chef Lodge a year later in 1988 which later went onto become a Travelodge during the 1990s.
The Little Chef restaurant continued to trade until July 2012 when it was deemed as an underperforming site by R Capital and closed. The building was later acquired by Euro Garages in 2013 who added a Starbucks store in the former Little Chef space and a Subway franchise in the former Burger King space.
The forecourt gained a Snack & Shop store before Esso sold the site to Euro Garages in late 2012. Euro Garages rebranded the store to SPAR following the acquisition. The MID sign for the forecourt now also promotes the Subway store which can confuse customers by allowing them to assume the Subway is situated inside the forecourt shop.
