Mervat Bukhari decided to become the first Saudi woman to run a gas station in Saudi Arabia, she thought of adding a feminine touch to the station to make it one of a kind.
She aims to make of her work location “the best digital gas station in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, with its high performance, highest standards of quality and cleanliness”.
Bukhari explained that she was working in the media sector which opened opportunities for her to meet with businesswomen, and later led to the opening of her own beauty center in Dammam.
“Through this launch, I have proposed many new ideas that have been developed from within the station with the vision of a woman capable of understanding the demands of the community, beginning with adding plants as an aesthetic touch to the ceiling and the outer facade of the site, providing five-star furnished luxury apartments, as well as offering rest house type of facilities for travelers -this allows travelers the option to rent for a full 24 hours,” she said.
She added that “We have taken advantage of the station’s location on the travel road to support passengers and provide clean toilets.
“Several additional proposals that support women drivers in the future would include a digital station that will be operational without the need to pay money. The prince of the Eastern Region approved another suggestion regarding opening a permanent headquarters for productive families and professionals in the field of cooking at an affordable price,” she added.
