For more than 80 years, Holiday Co. has been committed to providing high-quality fuel with great value, extensive product selection and a friendly, helpful staff, selecting as its slogan, "Experience the difference."

The majority of the convenience stores (more than 300) are corporate-owned, while the remaining are franchise stores. One of the largest franchisees is SSG Corp. in Wisconsin. The chain shed its locations in two states—Iowa and Nebraska—when it sold those stores to Casey's General Stores in 2010.

The company has a location inside the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. Holiday distinguishes itself in the marketplace with its proprietary sandwich and salad line, Holiday Pantry, and a host of private-label beverage, grocery and merchandise products.

The stores are large, with wide aisles and a large produce selection. The company is the sole distributor of Blue Planet clean gasoline.

In August 2014, Holiday opened its first fast-fill CNG station at a site in Duluth, Minn. There are car washes at 104 corporate stores and 74 franchise locations.
