For year-over-year benchmarking purposes, CSP's Top 202 is a list of the largest convenience-store chains ranked by U.S. store count as of Dec. 31, 2017. Any pending sales are not included, with the exception of 7-Eleven’s acquisition of 1,030 Sunoco sites—which was announced in April 2017 but not final until January 2018—due to the extreme impact of the sale. Technomic believes its sources of information are reliable, but it does not assume any liability for the accuracy or comprehensiveness of the information published.
Some caveats: 7-Eleven’s numbers reflect the 1,030 stores it acquired from Sunoco. Andeavor numbers reflect the chain’s store count before its pending merger with Marathon Petroleum. Kroger’s c-stores were sold to EG Group in early 2018; inclusion of EG Group’s name is for convenience. RaceTrac and Raceway stores have been separated due to their unique business models.
