Victory Marketing's Sprint Mart chain of 82 convenience stores (plus fuel distribution to another nine dealer sites) is based in Mississippi, with 79 units in Mississippi, two in Alabama and one in Louisiana.

In 2012 the company purchased 11 company-owned Gas Lane c-stores and nine dealer-operated stations from Natchez, Miss.-based Cloutier Oil. All except two have been converted to the Sprint Mart brand. For the most part, Sprint Marts sell Shell-branded gasoline, as do the stores purchased from Cloutier. A few Sprint Mart locations offer Exxon, BP or unbranded fuels. The c-stores are part of the Dutch Group, which also includes Dutch Oil, a distributor of fuel and lubricants.

All locations sell fuel and 12 sites have a car wash. The chain is diversified, with two units that are truckstops with showers; two have coin-operated laundries; and two have on-site pharmacies. Almost half of the chain is open 24 hours.

QSRs include Burger King, Subway, McDonald's, Domino's, Chix, Hot Stuff Pizza, Penn's and Donut Factory.
