Our experience
One of our main purposes is to ensure you, as a customer not only find what you want in store – but have an outstanding, memorable experience whenever you step foot inside.

Our story began with Philip and Lesley Tout

The Tout family have been partnering with local suppliers since the launch of their first convenience store, bringing you the best local produce.
Shipham Service Station
1977

Phil and Lesley open their first business at the age of 21

After Phil began a career in Mechanics from an early age, Phil and Lesley went on to purchase, extend and open their first business venture together, Shipham Service Station... working on vehicles and selling a little bit of fuel.
Rowberrow Service Station
1988

Phil and Lesley build their first Petrol Forecourt

Seeing a potential in the fuelling industry, Phil and Lesley bought their first petrol station. Rowberrow Service Station was rebuilt, to include a 4-pump island with a small shop for selling daily essentials... the same pumps are still there on site today!
Cullens
1990 - 2000

Purchase of Cullen's

Phil and Lesley set eyes on Langford, formally known as ‘Cullen’s’. They waited 10 years before developing the site with their biggest to date forecourt and convenience store. People said they were mad to add a larger convenience store on to a forecourt ‘as no one would buy milk from a service station’...... the rest is quite literally history!
Langford
2002

Langford gets extended

Budgens of Langford was overwhelmingly popular and busy with local residents, commuters and works, as a family we made the decision to double the shop floor size.
Cheddar Budgens
2004

Purchase of Cheddar Budgens

We purchased an established supermarket in Cheddar, changing it's name to Tout's Budgens of Cheddar.
2005

Purchase of Wraxall Service Station

After some time negotiating, the purchase of Wraxall Service station was complete and added to our Tout portfolio.

2015

We were extremely proud to have been nominated and then finalists of 'Best Independent Group' at the Grocer Gold Awards, missing out to the very reputable BOOTHS. Grocer Gold recognises the big supermarkets so we were very chuffed with this one.
