Since 1959, Royal Farms has advertised itself as the "go-to" place for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner and gasoline. It seeks high-quality foodservice items and products that differentiate it from competitors. Stores sell Royal Farms-branded fuel, and the company offers a fleet fuel program and fleet cards.

With a company motto of “Real Fresh ... Real Fast ... Real Green,” Royal Farms is known for its commitment to the environment through its green building initiatives. At its 2012 awards ceremony, the Maryland Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council recognized Royal Farms as Business of the Year. The company shows its commitment to the cause by having all its eligible stores certified through the USGBC and through its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

The chain seeks new sites throughout the four-state area where it has other stores. A location must have traffic of at least 25,000 cars daily, and corner properties with traffic signals are preferred. The chain strives to match the architecture of its neighborhoods in its store design.

Royal Farms stores are known for the fresh fried chicken and hand-cut western fries, freshly prepared subs, sandwiches and wraps. They also offer award-winning coffee and touch-screen ordering for foodservice.
