Exclusive Gas Station for the Ultra-Wealthy!
If you were looking for an unlikely combination of words to pack into a headline, exclusive and gas station would easily qualify. But, in fact, that’s what GP Club is planning, according to an article in Mansion Global. Projecting a members-only roadside rest for travelers with a household net worth exceeding $50 million, Guess Petroleum is planning an initial launch of 15 locations, including Beverly Hills, and a 36-month rollout of 250 sites.
A Guess Corporation press release describes some of the amenities, including four-level “mansion-style designed buildings” that will house a “steakhouse restaurant, business center, video-conferencing center, meeting rooms, suites for sleeping and resting, a medical clinic, a boutique selling select designer merchandise, a hair salon and the main level will house a convenience store with premium quality merchandise, fresh goods and a dining room.”
Visitors will be greeted with valet and concierge service, and a fill-up comes with a hand-wash and wax for the car. Did we mention the swimming pool and water park? Membership includes 24-hour emergency roadside assistance, round-the-clock travel concierge and a variety of member benefits and discounts, available through the GP Club platinum card.
According to its Facebook page, The Guess Corporation has more than gas stations up its sleeve. It is also planning “40 global private members only department stores” and an “upscale couples only restaurant chain.
