The Portuguese motorway concession company Brisa has announced a €40 million investment in its service areas.

The plan encompasses 33 Colibri restaurants in the service areas across the entire Brisa network and includes installing more electric vehicle charging posts to “meet the growing demand of our customers”.
The new Colibri service station areas are exploited by Brisa in partnership with the multinational company Areas. Brisa employs over 600 staff.
Apart from the €33 million invested in the new Colibri concept, Brisa has bolstered the number of vehicle charging posts to cover 11 motorways with 82 charging posts in a €10 million investment involving the partners that Brisa has in this segment.
Manuel Melo Ramos, Executive Director of Brisa (pictured), states a communiqué that the use of “electrical vehicles are expanding sharply and in 2022 to October alone there had been an uptick by almost 60% in electric vehicle sales in Portugal”.
Manuel Melo Ramos also revealed that the customer satisfaction index shows that customer satisfaction is increasing. “We provide services for around 8.5 million motorists a year, sell 5 million coffees and 1.7million Portuguese custard tarts, which are our big sellers. However, since we have opened a new Colibri in Mealjada, we’ve sold 300,000 suckling ham sandwiches; it’s a huge leap compared to the sales we’d recorded before”.
