Our history


The company was founded in Bulgaria in 2002 as a sole joint stock company – EKO EAD.

Four years later, the company acquired 12 petrol stations from the EKO Petroleum chain, and the number of outlets reached 41.

In 2008, following two key deals with Turkish Koch and Tempo, the number of EKO-branded outlets in the country increased to 72.

One year later, 9 new petrol stations joined the EKO Bulgaria network.

In 2021, the company opened a second self-service petrol station in Usoyka village, and at the end of the year, the total number of EKO outlets was 91.

In 2002 and 2023, EKO opened six new petrol stations in Sofia, Varna, and also in regions where the company had no presence, such as Razgrad, Kardjali, and on the Struma Highway heading to the Greek border. In 2024, the company plans to expand its network with seven new petrol stations, the first of which will be in the city of Stara Zagora.
