Billionaire Brothers Went From Buying One Bury Petrol Station to Buying ASDA for £6.8bn
Back to British ownership for the first time in over 20 years, Asda, the supermarket giant owned by Walmart is set to be bought by brothers Mohsin, 49, and Zuber Issa, 48.
Creating a billion-pound empire from humble beginnings, Mohsin and Zuber (known as the 'Issa Brothers'), began sowing their seeds in a Bury town centre petrol station purchasing the then run-down garage in 2001. With over 5,900 branches, employing 44,000 staff and worth more than £9billion, not only have the brothers possessed big dreams with a vision so bright, through their philanthropic heart and ongoing support they've managed to donate to East Lancashire hospital through these challenging times too.
Founders of the British retailer, EG Group, and children of immigrant parents who moved to Britain 'with nothing' from India in the 1970s rose from humble beginnings raised in a Blackburn townhouse. Fortunate to quickly grasp the importance of hard work from a young age selling petrol from their parents' filling station, not only are the Issa brothers making millions, they are revolutionising the industry.
With an entrepreneurial flair so strong it comes as no surprise Walmart was wooed by the Issas'.
