ON Oct 1, Petronas Dagangan Berhad (PDB) introduced Makan@Mesra at the Petronas Station in Taman Setiawangsa, a new eatery corner within the newly designed Kedai Mesra that offers convenient yet fresh and well-balanced premium food, with most items priced below RM12.
Through the introduction of Makan@Mesra, the Kedai Mesra, which has been known as the go-to place for quick grab-and-go food solutions, will now see an expanded range of food and beverage items including freshly-baked pastries, daily-prepared meals-to-go, desserts and drinks.
In addition, the refurbished Kedai Mesra now boasts an open chiller, self-serve coffee machine and microwave for the convenience of its customers.
The interior has also been remodelled to be more cosy and warm as part of PDB’s effort in designing a holistic customer experience encompassing the journey, ambience and offerings.
Speaking at the launch event, PDB’s managing director and chief executive officer Azrul Osman Rani said: “We first piloted this concept at the Petronas Station Jalan Kolam Ayer in Ampang last year and saw an increase demand for food-on-the-go.
“With this proof-of-concept, we are confident to expand this further so that more customers get to enjoy the new retail experience at our stations.”
He added: “To date, we have seven stations offering this new concept and we are targeting to expand to 15 more by the end of the year, and to over 200 stations by end of 2021.”
Also present at the launch was PDB head, retail business division Khalil Jaffri Muhammad Muri.
The new Makan@Mesra is available at Petronas Jalan Kolam Ayer, Petronas MRR2 Ampang, Petronas Cyberjaya 1, Petronas Mutiara Damansara, Petronas Kota Kemuning, Petronas Kota Damansara and Petronas Taman Setiawangsa.
