Thank you for your detailed and precise review of how to establish and operate a gas station in Turkey.

Clearly, gas stations in Turkey are particularly profitable investments. With the increase in vehicle purchases in Turkey, both for personal and commercial purposes, and considering the heavy traffic congestion in cities like Istanbul, the demand for fuel is continuously rising. This makes Turkey one of the best countries for investing in gas stations. In this article, we will provide you with all the necessary information on how to open a gas station in Turkey, and the licenses required to open a gas station in Turkey.
If you wish to open a gas station, you have two options. The first is to acquire an already functioning gas station at a low price. In this case, careful evaluation is necessary. The second option is to build a gas station from scratch on an empty plot of land. In this case, it’s important to understand why the land is vacant. You can seek assistance from real estate agents and market experts.

To open a gas station in Turkey, you need to prepare a detailed business plan including information on financial options, marketing plans, future goals, and staff management. Your plan should include how to handle theft, natural disasters, and competition. Professional assistance in preparing this plan can indeed be profitable if carefully planned and the right strategies are used. It also requires a clear commitment to providing high-quality service and a genuine appreciation for customer experience.

We offer comprehensive consultancy services and are pleased to support you at any stage of establishing a new gas station.

Promoting Your Station: You can try a variety of things to attract people to your station, one of which is offering one free stored gasoline for the customer who fills their tank at your station 10 times, or offering free meals and cola to customers who purchase gasoline worth 100 Turkish Lira is another alternative.

Of course, you should also take advantage of classic promotional items like posters, advertisements, and road signs.

Offering free things like filling car tires with air, tea, and coffee may seem simple but they make customers choose your station over another, even the cleanliness of the station can be an attracting factor. Offering car air fresheners, windshield wipers, tissues, pens, notebooks are good ideas to attract customers.
Expanding the Business: The constant fluctuation in gas prices can reduce profit margins from time to time, so you should also offer other things besides fuel at the station, such as car washes, minor repairs, vehicle accessories, a small market, and a small café can make you earn good money while working at the gas station.

Security Cameras and Their Importance: Anti-theft tools like cameras have been in use for many years. Thanks to the security cameras placed at different points of the station, you can watch your station 24/7, save images, and review them when you face any problems. It’s very important that these cameras can also see the license plates of vehicles entering and exiting. Sometimes you need a live video recording system where you can see and record the license plates of vehicles arriving at the station, as you may notice theft as it happens or sometimes later.
