Parker’s Kitchen’s first store in Augusta, Georgia, is now open and a second convenience store is set to open next month in North Augusta, South Carolina, directly across the Georgia state border.

Located at 3661 Mike Padgett Highway, at the intersection of Mike Padgett Highway and Tobacco Road, the new Georgia store opened its doors on Wednesday, while the North Augusta store locatedat I-520 and Highway 78, at 5747 Jefferson Davis Highway in North Augusta is expected to open on June 12.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to open our first Parker’s Kitchen locations in the fast-growing Augusta market,” said Parker’s Kitchen founder and CEO Greg Parker. “We’re laser-focused on exceeding customer expectations and being a great community partner.”

  • Parker Cos. is No. 94 on CSP’s 2023 Top 202 list of U.S. convenience stores by store count.

The new stores feature Parker’s “made-from-scratch” food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and other convenience items, including grab-and-go food options and a hot bar with convenient electronic kiosk ordering. Both stores feature 19 fuel dispensers.

Both stores are part of the Savannah, Georgia-based company’s ongoing expansion plans. The convenience-store chain now operates more than 85 stores across Georgia and South Carolina and is planning to expand south down to Jacksonville, Florida.

Parker’s Kitchen isn’t the only convenience-store chain expanding into new markets in the South. Tulsa, Oklahoma-based retailer QuikTrip confirmed with CSP on Wednesday that it’s entering the Florida market. “QuikTrip is in the early planning stages of entering Pensacola, Florida,” Aisha Jefferson, the convenience-store chain’s corporate communications manager, told CSP, “with hopes of beginning construction in spring of 2026.” It plans to open other unidentified sites in the Sunshine State even sooner.
