First Coast Energy LLP owns and operates 83 convenience stores and gas stations, and it distributes Shell gasoline to additional dealer sites in Florida and southeast Georgia. Petro Services oversees management for First Coast Energy. The company owns and operates 32 large c-stores branded Daily's, located throughout northern Florida, from Jacksonville to Miami, with the greatest concentration of stores in Jacksonville. The 32 Daily’s-branded stores are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The company added 14 new Daily’s stores primarily in south Florida in 2014 and is in the process of updating and rebranding all existing stores with the Daily Dash brand, its proprietary foodservice program.
The chain gears itself toward the name-brand-driven consumer who is seeking an upscale shopping experience. The Daily Dash foodservice concept, unveiled in 2013, offers hot breakfast, lunch and dinner entrees, plus sandwiches and made-to-order specialty coffee beverages to patrons who order via touch-screen kiosk.
Daily’s sells a private-label coffee called Daily’s Grind. Stores glamorize the customer’s buying experience with The Wine Cellar and The Ice Barrel wine and beer sections. Merchandise is marketed via gondola shelving with multivendor endcaps. The chain engages in discounts and promotions in addition to its own loyalty program, which offers name-brand snack-food rewards.
