MOL Magyarország on Thursday said it will buy the nine Marché motorway restaurants next to its gas stations in Hungary, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The acquisition, which requires Competition Office approval, dovetails with MOL's updated long-term strategy that places emphasis on the company's consumer services businesses.
MOL has opened 185 Fresh Corner brand petrol station coffee and sandwich shops since 2015 as part of that strategy.
