SHERMAN, Texas — Lone Star Food Store has been named the best gas station, best restroom and best locally owned business in the Best of Texoma awards sponsored by The Herald Democrat, which serves the Texas and Oklahoma interstate region.

“We are very proud to receive these coveted awards again this year because the recognition from the local communities helps us know that our efforts are valued by our customers,” Diane McCarty, CEO of Lone Star Food Stores, said in a company announcement acknowledging the award. “Lone Star Food Stores is grateful to the thousands of people who visit our stores each month and have allowed our company to grow and serve the Texoma-land area for 40 years.”

The Herald Democrat holds the annual competition in December. After a two-week voting period, this year’s awards were celebrated in an online format.

Parent company Douglass Distributing Retail Co., Sherman Texas, operates the chain of 23 convenience stores, eight quick-service restaurants and one liquor store under the name Lone Star Food Stores.
