Regional convenience-store operator Yesway is looking to expand its footprint in a big way.
With an existing portfolio of over 70 locations, Yesway announced it has a robust acquisition pipeline and plans to acquire, improve and rebrand more than 500 convenience stores in selected regions of the United States during the next several years. It also announced it has acquired KAPS, a five-store chain in Kansas, and the New Deal Travel Center of Texas in New Deal, Texas. These six new locations will complement the company's growing footprint in Kansas and its 35-store strong presence in West Texas respectively.
"As we continue to expand the Yesway brand, we look forward to becoming an essential member of the communities we serve, and to delivering "first name basis" customer service to everyone who visits our stores. Said Thomas Nicholas Trkla, chairman and CEO, Yesway, which is based in Des Moines, Iowa.
