Trowell services was originally awarded to Mecca Leisure who opened it with very unique styling. Granada extended it, but Moto reduced the number of brand partners.

The southbound EDC restaurant was removed to make way for a M&S Simply Food store, which opened on March 30 2017, joining its northbound counterpart.

The southbound West Cornwall Pasty Company unit was replaced with another Greggs store in October 2019, meaning that there are now four Greggs stores here.

A KFC restaurant is set to be added to the northbound side in Spring 2024, replacing the takeaway-only Costa store. Moto had initially looked at utilising the former restaurant on the first floor to house the new KFC, but this didn't happen.
