Convenience-store distributor C-StoreMaster is entering the gasoline distribution business with the acquisition of Hays and Son Oil, based in Culman, Alabama. Working from Hays and Son’s 13 properties in the Southeast, C-StoreMaster Energy will operate as an energy distribution division partnered with ExxonMobill as a licensed Exxon fuel distributor.

“We are excited to continue providing the personalized and efficient service we are known for to new partners,” said Sharan Kalva, C-StoreMaster president. “Launching an energy distribution division in partnership with ExxonMobil feels like a natural next step in expanding our offerings as both companies have parallels in our brand identities—top-notch products and service.”

With the acquisition of Hays and Son Oil, C-StoreMaster has taken over operations of 13 properties in the mid-Alabama area: 11 in Cullman, one in Hanceville and one in Vinemont.

Based in Huntsville, Alabama, C-StoreMaster is a regional distributor of c-store products specializing in the tobacco and beverage categories.
