Yesway, the fast growing convenience store chain, has announced the expansion of the company with the acquisition of 35 Wes-T-Go and Chillerz Convenience Stores in Abilene, Texas.

Last update:

These new Yesway stores will be added to the company’s existing portfolio of 38 locations currently operating in Iowa and Kansas. By the end of the second quarter of 2017, Yesway expects to have over 100 stores under management, placing it in the top 60 c-stores in the country, according to a recent ranking of the top c-store chains in the country by CSP News.

The company also has a robust acquisition pipeline and plans to acquire, improve and rebrand approximately 500 convenience stores as Yesway in selected regions of the United States over the next several years.

“As we acquire these stores, our goal is to build on the good work of the previous owner, Don Poindexter, whose dedication and commitment to the community is legendary. Don’s is a legacy we plan to live up to,” said Brian Trout, Yesway’s Senior Vice President of Operations.

The Yesway brand belongs to BW Gas & Convenience Holdings, a company formed by Brookwood to acquire, improve and operate a portfolio of undervalued gas stations and convenience stores in select regions of the United States.
