What was once a tired and dated service station on Hamblynn Road is now one of the busiest petrol and convenience outlets in the northern suburbs.
The Elizabeth Downs-based X-Convenience outlet has been refurbished by Andrash Pty Ltd and is the third Mobil-branded petrol distributor in the state.
It now also provides employment for 11 people from the local area, as well as supporting community groups.
Andrash Pty Ltd state manager Rachel Stewart, a resident of the Playford community, said that as a local, she is delighted to see the ageing facility updated and bringing business into the Downs.
Ms Stewart said the business had provided a massive boost for the local community.
“Local people have really embraced it,” she said.
“We’d definitely recommend opening a business in this area.
“We’ve had nothing but good experiences here.”
With three Northside Boxing Club members on staff, it is only natural Andrash Pty Ltd would also provide sponsorship support to the prominent Playford sporting club.
Northside has received several donations from the business, including support to purchase a cage for mixed martial artists to train in.
“We’ve had fantastic support from the owners and we really appreciate that link with the business community,” club member Tony Caruso said.
Andrash Pty Ltd operates 13 service stations across the state, with a number employing staff from across the northern suburbs.
Meanwhile, Caruso is currently preparing for his second professional fight, taking on light heavyweight Lucas Miller in Melbourne on 25 November.
Caruso hopes to be on the undercard for February’s Danny Green/Anthony Mundine blockbuster at Adelaide Oval.
