Working with world-leading brands, clubs and venues


case studies

Euro Garages – Greggs

EG Group has partnered with modular retail specialist Rapid Retail on the project, who designed, built and installed the bespoke shop unit in under eight weeks. It is the first time the two companies have worked together, with further installations now in the pipeline.

David Myers, UK Development Director, EG Group, commented: “We’re really pleased with the new retail unit. It looks fantastic and delivers on our commitment to providing premium retail convenience for our customers.

“Modular retail units are the perfect solution for us; they can be customised to our brand partners’ requirements allowing us to maximise the external space we have available on our sites. Fundamentally modular also enables us to minimise trading disruption. They are not only cost effective but look great and can be quickly deployed, which helps our pipeline planning across the EG Group portfolio.”


For a number of years Co-op have been one Rapid Retail’s biggest and most important clients. The services provided to Co-op are mostly logistical, transporting their pop-up stores to closed shop locations as temporary replacements.

Co-op walk-in portable shop

With room for several improvements, Rapid Retail was tasked with producing a new concept design for a temporary store. The main differentiating factor being that the unit would be configured to walk-in instead of walk-up.

For this to be possible the unit had to be larger, meaning less mobility. But the advantages to this style of shop are numerous in comparison to the burger-van-styled units of the past. These include:

  • Protection from the elements
  • Impulse buys
  • A more similar environment to a traditional supermarket
  • Longer term solution

Fanatics – NFL International Series

American football recently returned to London as part of the NFL International Series.

Supporting visitors to get fully involved in the action and giving them an opportunity to take home a memento of their visit, Rapid Retail was asked to supply four large pop up shops ahead of the event.

The merchandising units, which are fully branded and include eye-catching NFL graphics, have been placed at key points around the stadium. They have been designed, built and installed by Rapid Retail on behalf of Fanatics, a global leader in officially licensed sports merchandise and a long-standing customer of Rapid’s.

Nick Daffern, MD of Rapid Retail, said: “We are delighted to have worked with Fanatics once again and the four new merchandising units we have supplied are already proving popular. They allow spectators to see, try and buy merchandise, generating valuable revenue while helping to enhance the overall experience for fans.

“The beauty of our portable retail units and kiosks is their flexibility. They can help brands make the most of all available external space, increase opportunities to make sales, reduce queuing times and take the pressure off bricks and mortar shops. All of which are very appealing for both venues, clubs and spectators.”

Crystal Palace Fanzone

Having already supplied Crystal Palace with a large 9 metre walk-in pop up shop, Rapid Retail was asked to design, build and install a number of additional portable units.

These units were to be used as part of a new fanzone being created within the stadium. Opening three hours prior to kick-off, the 900m² fanzone was to offer pre-and post-match entertainment. It was to be divided into various sections, including live entertainment stages, a huge LCD screen, dining areas, shops and a football skills area.

There would also be a section for young fans to enjoy a ‘Fastest Shot’ machine, EA game station and a class room area with a range of activities to take part in, and chances to win prizes.

The units provided by Rapid Retail have helped to make the whole process very easy for Crystal Palace. They offer a highly cost-effective solution for providing activities and services within the fan zone, and are flexible enough to be used for a broad range of uses.

Picento – Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Picento approached Rapid Retail in need of a shop unit for a central location within the Pleasure Beach. The unit was to be used as a base for four Picento photographers, who would be taking photographs of visitors, next to the nearby ‘dancing water show’ – one of the most popular photo spots on the site.

The team needed a base close by, where they could take visitors and let them view the photographs and download the app if they wished. It also needed to offer space to sell other photo-based accessories and merchandise, to maximise upselling and cross selling opportunities.

Rapid Retail produced a bespoke shop design, which would provide the team with what they needed to offer the full range of planned services.

Features included a large open hatch with worktop area, above which the screens would be mounted and used for viewings. Plus, a gallery wall area, lockable office space and separate personnel access doorway. The shop unit also needed to be robust and highly secure, which was a main consideration for its design. 

Once the design was approved, the fully branded, 6M length x 3M wide x 2.5M height unit was built, delivered and installed by Rapid Retail’s expert delivery team.

West Cornwall Pasty Co.

With shops in around 50 locations across the country, West Cornwall Pasty Co is the UK’s largest pasty operator, selling over 2.75 million pasties a year. 

The company approached Rapid Retail to supply a catering unit for use on a busy train station platform.

The Rapid Retail team designed, produced and installed a 3m x 8m catering unit, complete with a storage room, ready for both cold and dry storage. The fully branded and powered unit complies with all relevant catering regulations, surrounding food preparation and fire safety. It can also be fully secured when not in use.

A key challenge of the project for Rapid Retail was managing the logistics of a build and installation at a train station.  The team liaised with the railway team to ensure all health and safety requirements were met. Usually shop units in these types of location are constructed onsite, however the core part of the Rapid Retail unit arrived in one piece meaning a much quicker build time, which was far less intrusive for the station.

West Cornwall Pasty now has an eye catching and enticing catering unit, designed to capture sales from travellers passing through the station.
